Boulevard One Lot 3 Custom Home


PROJECT DETAILS


Denver, Colorado


Residential


3,600 SF Custom Home


Located in the Boulevard One redevelopment in the Lowry neighborhood of Denver, the design of this custom, single family home blends contemporary lines with the more traditional vernacular of the existing Air Force base located nearby. The main hip roof line is interrupted by several flat, cubical forms that offer the interior space large openings. Exterior materials consist of brick, warm wood and dark stucco. The design introduced transparency at the middle of the house on the front elevation at the main entry through to the rear elevation and back yard. This transparency grants views of the two story Great Room Area, whose focal point is a textured brick wall with a warming fireplace and staircase that envelops the wall.
The main living space incorporates an open, contemporary kitchen and dining room with large glass openings that connect these spaces to the exterior patio. The design concept was to fully integrate interior and exterior
materials, by allowing the brick and railings at the exterior to have the same finish and detailing as those on the interior, creating a unique and cohesive concept. The homes will be designed to meet a HERS rating of 40, including super insulated walls and ceilings, energy efficient windows, and a very efficient heating and cooling system. The house also boasts a roof deck, a full basement and three car garage.
