Winter Park Modern

Winter Park Modern

After spending an amazing three days up at Devil’s Thumb Ranch for Presidents weekend, we decided to visit our good friend Ruth Hiller’s old Winter Park home design by Michael P. Johnson on our way back to Denver.

The house looks great! The current owners are taking good care of this mountain modern gem. There was a fairly fresh blanket of snow surrounding the home with massive road side snow banks creating the most beautiful, peaceful, winter scene.

I’ve had the opportunity to stay in this house a few times and its magnificent, especially the main living space that cantilevers over the mountain floor and is surrounded by trees in all three directions. It feels like a modern glass tree house.

If you would like to learn more about the Hiller Residence, check out this Dwell feature from 2009. However, the real star is the woman who built this home and worked directly with Michael P. Johnson in the design process, Ruth Hiller. Check out her geometric art and follow her on Insta, she is always posting great behind the scenes photos and videos of her work and process.
