A mixed-use urban building located in the Historic District of Telluride. Strategies of discrete massing using local and modest materials are interpreted for this contemporary model of living. Plunge Landing is a mixed-use Contemporary 2 + bedroom and 4 bedroom penthouse plus commercial space. The creative vision of New York architects Smith-Miller and Hawkinson and dogged persistence of the owner expanded this resort town's vision of compatibility within its National Historic District. Using the vernacular of Telluride's mining and commercial buildings rather than the traditional foursquare late Victorian, and Gothic revival residences which predominate, a dynamic space for modern living and working has been achieved.
Here at Plunge Landing, just steps from the gondola, the residence is elevated over its commercial space thus allowing unsurpassed cineramic vistas of the surrounding San Juan Mountain's peaks and ski slopes. Additional SF are as follows: Garage 203; Decks 682 and ancillary hallways, stairs, mechanic, storage 1,612 for a total of 7,987 SF. The gross SF based on exterior dimensions is 9,828.
