    An unused and back courtyard gets a modern new space for recently located homeowners who loved to entertain.

    The fireplace shined and added some necessary heat in the winter months.

    The color of the stacked stone and the glass tile brought some much needed calm while pulling the interior to the exterior space.

    A side entrance was created so that when entertaining, guests could proceed directly to the backyard. Previously, this was dirt filled area that had little use.

    Recently moved to Denver, Colorado, LeavittHaas is a boutique design firm focusing on the ergonomics of a home as well as unique finishes to give each home a unique feel that fits the needs and desires of their clients. Using 3D renderings, the company allows clients to "walk" their project before construction begins. A founding principle of the company is to look at the house as a whole during design and then stage the construction in phases in order to achieve the clients dream homes. Some clients only have one small project, while others realize that all interior and exterior projects need to be taken into account before the first project is begun.
