The Perch

Aspen, Colorado / Residential


GF Woods Construction

Vesel Brand


The Perch as it’s affectionately referred to is the personal residence of Scott and Susan Lindenau the founders of Studio B Architecture + Interiors with studios in Aspen and Boulder, Colorado. Originally constructed in 1968, this modest mid-century house was completely renovated and thrives in its surrounding aspen forest on a sloping hillside while enjoying the seasonal changes within its high-alpine landscape.

Restraint is evidenced by the minimalist architecture with the curation of modern and tribal art from the owners many global adventures and is a vessel of memory to the remote landscapes and cultures visited.

The Perch enjoys a wonderful light-filled interior with floor-to-ceiling fenestration on both sides with light and shadow tracking throughout the interior spaces as the sun makes its way across the sky.

In the summer and fall months, the Perch is almost like a tree fort standing in a sea of green or yellow with privacy and in the spring and winter months, the views reveal themselves and views are far in the distance. A cantilevered and hidden rear terrace offers solitude within the aspen canopy and is ideal for outdoor dining and views to Independence Pass and Aspen Mountain.

The street elevation is non-descript and the personality of the house is not revealed until one enters and circulates around the defining wall offering the visitor a glimpse of the light-filled interior and into the forested landscape.
