De la Lama House

-A A +A
1981, Victor de la Lama. Elk Track Rd.

This Mexican architect designed his own home of raw wood and glass in shed-roofed modules set amid aspen trees. “Many mountain houses tend to have similar envelopes,” Vail architect Fitzhugh Scott told Snow Country magazine (October 1988), but de la Lama's house was an “outstanding design departure.”
