Like much of the Colorado housing stock built during the booms of the 1970′s and early 1980′s, the Hardscrabble House was nearing the end of its useful life. The resulting renovation, remodel and addition offer permeable spaces that simultaneously disappear into and inhabit the landscape. Acid-etched glass contributes to the transparent, translucent atmosphere, and the south-facing living room and planted roof deck blur the boundary between interior and exterior. Interior and lighting design, also created by Arch11, features the interplay of refined details with stark, industrial materials. This project was delivered as a design-build collaboration, a cost-effective process that streamlined completion while ensuring a high quality of detail.
