Situated on a triple-lot in Boulder’s Newlands neighborhood, this 3200 SF home was designed for a young couple looking to start a family and develop a property well-positioned for future re-sale in the Boulder real estate market. Our challege was to preserve as much of the yard as possible while creating a 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home that grouped the master suite and kid’s bedrooms on a single floor, and accomodate a private guest suite, ample living areas, open kitchen, and detached garage with a small studio space above.
The gabled-roof design and divided light windows not to the vernacular style of the adjacent properties and the southern roots of the owners. The charred and stained cypress siding offers a distinctl contemporar tone. A long horizontal volume stretches across the font perimeter of the property, concealing the large outdoor space behind. The design relies on standard wood framing to optimize budget without compromizing form, and allows the owners ample room to both grow their family and enjoy a fluid connection between indoor and the outside.
