Aspen Modern from Atelier AM


The duo’s sublime interiors, redolent of history yet in tune with the modern world, distill centuries of architecture and art. Diverse periods, styles, and materials are brought together in poetic juxtapositions: a Barnett Newman painting and classical Roman sculptures, centuries-old wood and silky stainless steel, Bronze Age artifacts and Machine Age masterworks.




But for all the bravura moments they create, the Misczynskis ply their craft with subtle discipline, a quality that has made them sought-after collaborators for preeminent modern architects such as Richard Meier and the firm Olson Kundig.
