Steamboat Duplex #3 is a dynamic addition to the scenic landscape of Steamboat, Colorado, exemplifying the intricate balance between innovative multi-family architecture and the unique challenges of mountainous environments. Designed by J Reeser Architect, LLC, this project reflects a deep commitment to environmental sustainability and alpine climate responsiveness.

Working closely with local authorities to ensure full compliance with building codes was a critical part of the project’s success.
