Award Winning Contemporary House, Colorado

Designed by Arch11 for a private client, this gorgeous contemporary abode can be found in Boulder, Colorado.

The Arch11 team was tasked with designing an original minimalist interior for a speculative home for a private client. The monochrome palette is contrasted by a two-storey red glass stair enclosure – a formal sculpture in the space that provides a haptic experience playing with one’s sense of color as you walk up or down the stairs.

The walls were removed to facilitate an overlapping of space and provide connection to the north and south yards throughout the outdoor spaces.  A play of tone and texture, rather than color, delineates surface treatments. Walls are white, whether plaster, glass or casework. The polished concrete floor surface transforms to become the fireplace wall, the polymorphous material remains the same, only the surface texture and tone change. A formal language of overlapping horizontal planes establishes a design language for stairs, hearth, kitchen and breakfast room table. Images courtesy of Arch11.
