colorado home

We love to brag about our local Colorado beauty, but especially when homes around Colorado are being built in order to take advantage of it! This Colorado home has decks around the south and west sides so the family can maximize the beautiful, sunny Colorado days with outdoor entertaining and living space. The interior of the home focuses on "private accommodation and public quarters."  This creates private areas for bedrooms, but open living, dining and kitchen spaces with large views of the area surrounding the home. The home has solar panel walls which also take advantage of the sunny Colorado days. The roof, or sombrero, as the University of Colorado Denver students who assisted on the project called it, protects from the sunlight during the hot summer months. This home takes advantage of all the natural beauty around it with the open windows. We love the connection between indoor and outdoor that was done on this project. Thanks to DesignBoom for another great share!
