Our home is located in the historic Brand Building. The Brand Building is an old Colorado sandstone fortress that is imbued with all of Aspen's history. Built in 1891 as a bank, which once stored the largest piece of silver ever mined, the building houses designer shops (Gucci and Christian Dior) on the ground floor with suites above. This historic building has been meticulously restored and featured in Architectural Digest.
