Nove I in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

Nove 1 consists of two 3,500 square foot single-family residences located on a corner lot in Aspen’s West End neighborhood. Sometimes entitled “Sibling Rivalry,” Nove’s two residences divide the property into equal halves and draw a line – the concrete landscaping wall – right down the double courtyard in the middle. The residences are within easy walking distance of Aspen’s numerous cultural activities. The architecture of the houses is clean and sophisticated. The exterior and interior material palate is simple yet elegant, and designed for housing of the residents’ many pieces of artwork. Construction was completed in the fall of 2005.

Scholl Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

The Scholl Residence expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. The steep site possessed challenges with drainage, topography, a small footprint, restrictive easements and was required to address very limiting neighborhood design review standards. Contextually, the area was developed in the 1960’s and surrounding residents were quite resistant to the architectural direction. Although the neighborhood is one of transition, this was the greatest challenge in realizing the project.

Lowenstein Cultural Center in Denver, Colorado by Semple Brown Design

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

The prominent urban site located along East Colfax Avenue was the first anchor development for the City of Denver’s Colfax Redevelopment Plan. The idea was to create a vibrant urban center incorporating anchor tenants with a focus on Music, Books and Movies.  It was envisioned that the synergy created between the two retailers and the movie theatre would help to invigorate the neighborhood and work as a catalyst for the revitalization of East Colfax Avenue.  A cinema was originally cast to go into the vacated historic Lowenstein Theatre, but after a programmatic change the historic Theatre was renovated to for the local bookstore Tattered Cover.  This left the new building, which houses a local music venue Twist & Shout and Denver Film Center, to reinforce the urban edge of Colfax and Elizabeth streets.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Working closely with Denver’s Division of Theatres and Arenas, SEMPLE BROWN DESIGN considered many options before launching the final concept for the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The firm had been in discussions with the City as early as 1993, trying to solve this unique puzzle.

La Muna Mountain Home in Aspen, Colorado by Oppenheim Architecture + Design

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Article source: Oppenheim Architects

A complete renovation and minor addition of one of the first homes built in the ultra-exclusive enclave of Red Mountain in Aspen Colorado. 30 years of hazardousness of this rustic ski chalet with all its imperfections is a  homage to the Japanese sensibility of wabi sabi. Clad in reclaimed regional wood, stone and steel the home is intended to make a minimal impact on the natural resources and merge effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings of forest, stream and mountain. Solar collectors provide needed energy for power and hot water, while extremely large operable panels of insulated glass blur the boundaries between inside and out– further enforcing a connection and deep respect of place.
