    When you think of Colorado architecture, the last image that probably comes to mind is white-washed buildings perched along Mediterranean hillsides. Yet that is precisely the inspiration that Jacques Juilland—principal and owner of Habilis DesignBuild—tapped for the renovation of this single-story 1950s ranch in North Boulder. The homeowners, Will and Coral Frischkorn, are the duo behind Boulder’s popular cheese and charcuterie shop, Cured Boulder. “Every time we looked at pictures” of Meditteranean architecture, says Juilland, “they came back to that style.”

    After gutting the interior to create an open floor plan, the Habilis crew installed reclaimed wood flooring that the homeowners had sourced. They painted the walls Strong White by Farrow & Ball and installed a custom metal stairs railing from local welder Joan of Arc. The stove is a Hwam Classic 7. Photo  of Frischkorn Ranch modern home

    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. Photo 3 of Frischkorn Ranch modern home

    “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. Photo 8 of Frischkorn Ranch modern home
