Basalt, Colorado

Located in Basalt, Colorado, black shack architects is a full service architecture + planning firm with a passion for contemporary, sustainable design- responding to site, climate, and community goals.  The firm has grown from humble roots in an old coal shack to a regionally-celebrated design firm with a shelf full of awards.

Black shack was founded by principal Glenn Rappaport, a University of Colorado bachelor’s graduate with a masters degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture.  The firm was founded just three years after graduation in 1989, giving them over 20 years of architectural service.  Their modern, thoughtful portfolio heavily favors residential design, but they also have a plethora of built works in the commercial and civic sectors.  Perhaps more impressive is the firm’s versatility — despite the increasing global nature of the architectural industry, it is still a very regional craft.  Black shack embraces this regionality without constricting itself to a limited palette of materials and forms.  Great stuff, all around.

For more of black shack’s work, make sure to check out the BS website — we are glad to be back in full swing and have some great features for you in the coming days/weeks so be sure to stay tuned!
