Black Forest Homestead, Denver, Colorado

A residential custom home located in the Denver area with a European flair, setting it apart from the traditional Rocky Mountain architecture.  The Rocky Mountain aesthetic is still present, but accompanied by cleaner lines, more sophisticated detailing, and a contemporary touch.

A strong concern from the clients was not disturbing the surrounding landscape on the site.  With beautiful ponderosas and a stream running through the site, we wanted to keep these natural features intact.  A large part of the design was centered around fitting the house footprint appropriately into the site, working around these natural elements.
