Contemporary Colorado Mediterranean
5,700 sf | 5 bedroom | 4.5 bath
This project truly reflects the benefits of a custom design for your next residence.
The site sits within a Tuscan-themed subdivision, but the owners wanted the home to have contemporary styling, both outside and in. The result was a blend of Colorado contemporary meets Mediterranean villa. The exterior blends the clean lines of contemporary architecture with the durable Colorado finishes of stucco, stone and heavy timber.
The site was a nice-sized lot, but the true “million dollar view” was at a distinct 40 degree angle from the street. The final design both addresses the street with its garage and angled entry, and then re-orients you within to a truly spectacular view of the Colorado Front Range, anchored by Pikes Peak.
The massing and appearance of the home transforms drastically from front to rear. While the front of the home unfolds around a second floor, it guards the privacy of the living space within. The rear of the home guards this privacy, but completely opens up to the views from its elevated location. The entire rear of the home is a series of exterior living spaces on three separate levels, each with protection from intermittent weather.
The home is a beautiful synthesis of light, form and contemporary materials that result in a comfortable, open living environment.
