This home was designed to engage and fit into its Victorian neighborhood. The proportions of the entry were intended to be more quaint in nature, but since the best views were from the upper levels, the Entry opens directly up a stair to the living level on the second floor. There is also a separate studio apartment in the back which was built on piers to preserve the existing spruce tree.
By adding steel details and extra wide composite lapped siding the home has a more modern feel, but still fits into its Victorian neighborhood.
The studio apartment in the back of the lot was built around the existing spruce tree. In order to have the least impact on the neighbors the roof in the back of the apartment is a low curve.
The Entry looking up the stair to the Living Room
The Living Area on the second floor used soaring roof to open the views up to Aspen Mountain. The distressed wood floor contrasted perfectly with the modern details. Interiors by ma2 architects.
The Kitchen used unique greenhouse windows and a large bay window to make the space light and airy
The proportions of the front elevation recall similar Victorian homes in the neighborhood, but the detailing is distinctly modern in nature.
