Mountain Architecture Year in Review: An Art Form of Compromise

Trends come and go, but for longtime Steamboat architect Joe Patrick Robbins, the client’s tastes are always the bottom line.

It doesn’t take much to see where Steamboat architecture is headed. There are enough construction sites around town to know that more modern features like single-pitched rooves and clean lines with a lot of metal and glass have arrived in Steamboat, along with the kind of high-end, high-dollar homes that were once associated with upscale resorts like Telluride, Vail, and Aspen.

But one thing remains the same, according to Joe Patrick Robbins, an architect who has been designing houses in Steamboat for 45 years: Regardless of the trends, good design is always going to be timeless. “It’s really important that an architectural design isn’t so tied to a trend or a fad that it then becomes easily identified as a house that’s built in certain time period. A really thoughtful design is going to have a certain timeless element.”
