New Construction under 4,000 Square Feet – Cantilever House
Resting on a narrow, steep lot north of downtown Boulder, the Cantilever House is constructed on a site that was deemed by many to be unbuildable. It took months working with City Planners to interpret the complex zoning regulations. In the end, our goal was to design a modern, livable home within these constraints that took advantage of panoramic views in every direction.
The main influence in the design is the essence of simplicity, its composition, and purity of form. While the home has a definite geometric elegance, there is a hidden playfulness found within. The design places the primary living zones, encompassing the dining room, kitchen and living room on the upper floor that cantilevers out over the lower courtyard, 2 stories below. Accessed from a beautiful entry sequence, the front door opens to an eye-catching view through the skylight
