This residence, in Denver's exclusive polo club neighborhood, is considered by its owners to be a family heirloom.
Working within the neighborhood design covenants, the home hosts modern spaces in a updated traditional form. We worked painstakingly, developing exterior details that use time-tested materials in a modern syntax. Each allowed the homes craft persons to work at the very top of their craft.
The result is modern space tempered with traditional form and materials; a palette of zinc, stone and vertical-grained fir. Simple lines and Shaker-inspired details on cabinets and connections emphasize a hybrid steel and timber frame structure. The house is carefully sited, incorporating several large American Elm trees into a seamless weaving of home and landscape. The house is a testament to a warm, timeless palette defining a series of spaces that supports a modern way of life for this family of five. Arch11 recently added a poolhouse addition accessed under a vine-covered walkway that hosts living and bathing spaces in a spa-like retreat.
