While Oppenheim’s new plan is similar in size to an earlier proposal rejected by the city, the newer, more elegant design seems likelier to be accepted by […]

INTROSPECTIVE MAGAZINE – Oppenheim’s Time

An architect with offices in Miami and Basel, Switzerland, would seem to have two very different points of reference — sunny shores one week, mountain views the next. Yet Chad Oppenheim, designer of muscular-but-playful modernist buildings all over the world, is equally comfortable in both realms (he has a house in Aspen, too) and has carved out something of a specialty when it comes to highlighting views and experiences of the outdoors in its many disparate forms. “We’ve got a tremendous desire to […]

Chad Oppenheim, the home’s owner and architect, explains that while most of the furnishings are limited-edition, museum-quality pieces, the space, which he calls “the everything room,” revolves around family—himself, […]
