Summit Sky Ranch is a devel­op­ing com­mu­nity of 240 single-family homes located in the Blue River Valley, 2 miles north of Sil­ver­thorne, Col­orado. The goal of the com­mu­nity devel­op­ers is to create homes with clean lines that meet organic shapes, allow­ing the archi­tec­ture to fit in with the land­scape rather than alter­ing the land­scape for the archi­tec­ture. Owners are able to con­nect with nature with active moun­tain lifestyles.

When owners are not out explor­ing Col­orado, they will have the finest ameni­ties to pro­vide their fam­i­lies out­door expe­ri­ences to trea­sure for­ever. The Aspen House at Summit Sky Ranch will be cen­tral in the com­mu­nity and will serve as the social and recre­ational cen­ter­piece, and will include ameni­ties unlike those found in other com­mu­ni­ties. These ameni­ties include a pri­vate 20-acre lake with beach, an obser­va­tory, pri­vate Blue River fish­ing access, com­mu­nal gath­er­ing areas offer­ing yoga, a fit­ness center, hot tubs, fire pits and an out­door swim­ming pool, and nearly unlim­ited access to the heart of the Col­orado Rocky Moun­tains, which includes mul­ti­ple world-class ski resorts, along with biking and hiking trails.

The Selux Inula Bol­lard was chosen for the Aspen House at Summit Sky Ranch due to its sophis­ti­cated, clean lines, com­ple­ment­ing the design lan­guage of the com­mu­nity. With no up light, the IDA Approved Dark Sky Friendly” Inula is an envi­ron­men­tally con­scious light­ing fix­ture, keep­ing light on the paths rather than in the sky. Com­bin­ing full four-quad­rant light engines with others depend­ing on the need and loca­tion, allowed dif­fer­ent light­ing pat­terns to be achieved on forest path­ways and park­ing areas.

  • The Inula Bollard and Column are sophisticated and environmentally friendly pathway and area luminaires with no up light. The proprietary optic provides clean lighting patterns with no striations. A recessed LED light engine, convex cone shaped light chamber, and matte Black finish provides a BUG up light rating of U0.
