This modern, urban home nestles within its many layers of gardens and outdoor living spaces. Ample places for gathering and play are intentional extensions of the interior of the home, seamlessly terraced through the property, inviting one to live outside as much as in. The architecture that grows from this displays a contemporary nature that interprets traditional ideas found in the surrounding North Boulder neighborhood such as warm inviting porches and materials chosen for scale and individual identity.
The design of the home reflects a desire to create a true geometry that informs through simplicity, providing character and diversity. And once inside, the architectural palette of wood, steel, and glass creates a series of unified spaces bathed in light and warmth.
Embodying the architect’s environmental sensibilities of sustainable living, the home integrates systems such as a super-insulated building envelope, high performance windows and doors, and heat recovery ventilation to preserve indoor air quality. This oasis in the city brings into being a delightful combination of beauty, comfort, and efficiency.
