1280 S Ute

In 1976, Benedict moved his architectural office from the downtown Victorian-era Bowman Building to his newly designed Benedict Building on 1280 Ute Avenue, east of Aspen’s downtown commercial core. According to the Society of Architectural Historian Guide to Colorado Architecture, it conforms to the “’Aspen style,’ exemplified by well-sited, low-slung Modernist structures of indigenous materials, notably wooden beams that often seem to fade into the aspen grove.”
