“No home we’ve ever done has gotten as many comments as this one,” says Boulder-based architecture firm Arch11’s founding principal E.J. Meade. “We’re getting queries from that leading edge of baby boomers telling us they want to downsize into a home like this one—compact enough that every square inch was thought through and will be accessible as they age, even if they need care later in life.”

 

Architects statement: "A classically modern pavilion, this two suite guest house sits in a park-like setting and recalls classic case study homes of the 20th century. The house turns a solid face to the north, providing privacy while opening the south face to an over-sized stone patio. The patio is a transitional outdoor room between the tempered space and the garden beyond. The palette is a contrast of crisp lines and textured surfaces weaving modern spaces with timeless, patinated surfaces."

 

Sustainable features: super-insulated, sited to shield from weather and to maximize passive-solar heating.
