3. Minturn, Colorado Plan

High-density means different things to different people. In this case, we maximized the density of a site in Minturn, Colo. The builder’s pro forma required three homes to make this deep, narrow site work financially. The footprint had to be minimized, so the concept was developed to include two stacked flats (one over garage space, the other over a live/work office) and a two-story home.
