Modern Homes in Colorado

From urban lofts to scenic ranches, Colorado is home to a wide-range of modern residences.

“We knew we had to connect the exterior to the interior,” says Juilland, who added the large window to the living room and French doors to make it easy to get in and out from the kitchen. The custom picnic table is custom-made from Ben Dagitz.

The building retains its original footprint; this was an important detail for the homeowners who wanted to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. “The biggest element I work with is to use the existing structure when I remodel,” says Juilland.

The Folly Farm 

The Folly Farm’s contemporary execution was heavily inspired by historic farmhouse architecture. Designed first and foremost for livability, architects created the space of both old and new features, with emphasis on a mix of materials and textures within the confines of a simple, open layout.

The home's heat comes from a highly efficient wood-burning stove from Rais. Though wood burning is banned in Boulder, the sealed firebox can be used year-round, with combustion technology so effective it's said to release less carbon dioxide than decomposing wood. After logs burn down to embers, the stove continues to radiate heat for hours, reducing the amount of kindling required to keep the place warm.

Studio Shed founders Mike Koenig and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski had a common problem: too many things, too little space. As mountain bikers, they needed extra room for their bikes and equipment. Frustrated by the options on the market, they combined brainpower (Koenig has a degree in business, Horgan-Kobelski in engineering) to create Studio Shed.

This shed is used as an art studio (twelve by 24 feet) in Boulder, CO. The resident opted for custom lighting and a stained plywood floor.

Since this home was primarily for the couple, rather than their grown children, they wanted a luxurious master bedroom. A Kichler fan circulates air above the bed.

Apart from a “generous” master bedroom, Mitchell says that the couple also wanted a rooftop deck to see views of downtown Denver. A sloped roof kept the building up to code, and the outdoor deck “was achieved by shifting the upper volume backwards from the front of the house,” he says.

Mitchell wanted to detail the solid oak staircase with that same sense of openness, even though its materials are heavy. “We used a lot of raw steel and wood on the interior of the home,” Mitchell said. “This carries the authenticity of real materials from the building exterior to the building interior.” A custom fireplace sits on the patio.

Exposed beams, sleek angles, and carefully considered placement of siding and masonry make the Carey “Holiday Home” Executive Models in Denver’s Harvey Park architecturally distinctive and pleasing to the eye. The small volume under to the roof to the right is a storage shed in the house’s carport. Visitors to the house enter through the carport to reach the front door.

Vertical stained wood tongue-and-groove siding is unique to this house.

Generous concrete pavers lead to the entrance. The home's angles are typical of the midcentury homes in the neighborhood.

“We were concerned that by elevating the first floor by six feet, we would be detaching the living space from the neighborhood,” Mitchell says. “Thus, we have an elevated exterior patio off of the rear that overlooks the sidewalk and brings the living space to the outdoors.”

Mitchell says that the red cedar “provided a nice level of contrast from the white siding on top and helps to establish those two spaces as distinctly separate.” The siding is from James Hardie.

“Considering all of the foot traffic around their property, [the owners] made it very clear that they wanted to find a way to maintain as much privacy in the home as possible,” architect Chad Mitchell says of this Denver home. “Thus, the main floor of the home is elevated from the sidewalk by about six feet.” The exterior siding is red cedar with a custom Sherwin-Williams stain.
