Overlooking Boulder Creek to the north and gazing upon the Flatiron Mountains to the south, each of the three homes at Streamside combine a strong connection to the natural environment with a contemporary sensibility of an urban home in downtown Boulder. A modern interpretation of their context in time and place, each are designed using a simple and refined palette of materials – wood, steel, glass, plaster – that balances warmth with strength, texture with translucency.
The outdoor spaces intertwined with nature are extensions of the indoor spaces, with folding doors and windows creating a seamless threshold between inside and outside living while providing for ample daylight throughout.
And based on years of building science experience integrating a super-insulated building envelope, high performance windows and doors, energy sipping appliances and fixtures, along with our Advanced Air Sealing and Ventilation system, the Streamside homes are modelled to perform as zero-energy homes, with each home providing the energy it requires each and every year.
