The Near | Far house was cited for displaying “a very nice siting and impressive interaction between interior and design and landscape.” The project has since been published in Architect magazine (www.architect magazine.com/project-gallery/near-far-house_o).

• The city of Aspen’s collections of real estate transfer taxes continues to outpace last year’s figures by a handsome margin.
