This month's issue of Colorado Homes and Lifestyles features a spread on Geneva Park and highlights the site, team, and design process that brought the project to life. 

With a vision of 'stumbling upon a country farmhouse,' right in the middle of Boulder, the homeowners and project team wanted to bring forward some of those details and capitalize on the wooded lot conducive to this stumbling with its long driveway off the street and around a bend, leading to a house hidden among the trees.

A marriage of the couple's two styles, contemporary oversized glazing and huge operable glass walls bring the light, air, and views into the home, while more traditional forms and detailing can be found in the high pitched gable roofs and crisp white siding. Protecting the large exterior trees and forming a "magical landscape" that shelters the home as the topography and giant boulder climb toward the rear became a pivotal feature in both the design and in capitalizing in treehouse views out towards the surrounding wooded lot.
