This Spring we completed "Bluebell"-- a poptop remodel here in Boulder. Utilizing the existing foundation and 90% of the existing exterior walls, an entire interior renovation was made and second floor added. Removing the front yard garage entry and turning into a bike mudroom helped strengthen the street presence. A cedar trellis distinguishes an entry sequence and the overhang of the upper level creates usable outdoor space in both front and back. You can see the original 1950's brick ranch below.
As the original floor plan was majorly opened up and existing walls were removed, the interior embraces the articulated steel structure that runs in from the exterior. The steel also finds its way to the gathering room where blackened plate steel wraps the entertainment wall. Click into our portfolio page for Bluebell here for the entire set of photos.
