In 1958, at the age of 36, William Muchow completed design of this southeast Denver home.
Muchow, the grandfather of Denver modernism, was eight years into his practice and had just completed his tenure as a distinguished Rome Prize fellow.
The home itself is an iconic mid-century design, a simple ‘L’ in plan on a lot that backs to golf course vistas.
Sixty years had taken a toll on the house and the project required an entire gutting of the interior; this allowed the home to be rewired, radiant heat added, new plumbing, and insulation.
The design team took some liberties in finishes, replacing shag carpet with polished concrete, and swapping out the hard to climb into sunken tub with a modern sculpted vessel bath. But the lines of this iconic house were respected as the home is eased into the twenty-first century.
We had daily conversation with Muchow’s spirit, and think Bill would approve, he was always looking forward.
