Residential Design for the Potter Highlands Historic Neighborhood
Denver Architects, ArcWest Architects, Residential Design for a modern home in the Potter Highlands Historic Neighborhood is taking form. The owner’s directive during the design process was a departure from their current home. “No gables” we were told. This provided ArcWest with the challenge of developing a design that meets the owner’s needs while satisfying the requirements of both the Denver Landmark Preservation and the Highland Neighborhood Association.
The Historic Neighborhood front building form incorporates historical turn of the century “Denver Square” building forms. The Residential Design takes a dramatic turn towards the back of the home as the historical references are left behind and the modern forms takes hold. The cantilever is visually striking and fully functional as a sun shade for the main living areas and outdoor patio during hottest days of the year.
Demolition of the existing structure at 3331 Bryant St. is complete and construction of the new 4,000 sf custom home with 1,800 sf garage and ADU accessory dwelling unit is underway. This project designed by Denver’s ArcWest Architects is located in the Potter Highlands Historic Neighborhood. ArcWest successfully facilitated the customer driven design through the local HUNI Neighborhood association and Denver Landmark requirements.
Construction scheduled to be complete in early 2015.
