South Lowell Apartments in DENVER, COLORADO by Workshop 8 Architecture

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Workshop 8 Architecture 

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.

This urban infill project juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of bulk plane restrictions and the need to provide privacy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex.

Hilltop House in Broomfield, Colorado by Studio H:T

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: Studio H:T

This hilltop house is located at the highest elevation in Broomfield county. Inverted roof trusses are used to lessen the impact of scale from the east while opening up to the west to invite the endless views of the entire front range. The house is an L-shaped ranch with a bridge to the master suite pod and stone water feature entry. The L is divided into two zones of public and private space and has an observation / lounge room sits above the entry. A lap pool outbuilding helps to define the private courtyard created by the house and opens onto it with two large aluminum and glass garage doors.

Shield House in Denver, Colorado by Studio H:T

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: Studio H:T

This urban infill project juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of bulk plane restrictions and the need to provide privacy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex. This element becomes the focus of the residence both visually and experientially. It acts as sun catcher that brings light down through the house from morning until early afternoon. At night it becomes a glowing, welcoming sail for visitors.

Fractured Residence in Boulder, Colorado by Studio H:T

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Article source: Studio H:T

The project creates spatial experience from the fracture implied by splayed property lines. The resulting volumetric fissure of the building mass organizes the horizontal circulation and creates the space of the stair cavern. The fracture also serves as a connector between the two entries of the long narrow dwelling, thus remediating the challenging circulation issues of building from street to street with a sectional shift of almost 40′. The unique spatial experience is punctuated by, and allows for, highly varied apprehension of form, light, and shadow
