Boulevard One at Lowry, Bronze Award, Single-Family Production, 2,001 to 3,100 sf

Site: Denver
Entrant/Architect: DTJ Design
Builder: Berkeley Homes
Photographer: Eric Lucero Photography
Size: 2,829 sf
Completion: March 2016

Inspired by farmhouses and the industrial heritage of the site (a redeveloped former Air Force base), this home’s exposed steel posts and lintels add interest while avoiding a warehouse look. The project attained a HERS rating of 40, unusual for production housing in the region, says Steve James, principal at DTJ Design. A 30-foot-wide footprint lets abundant natural light into this courtyard home, with offset corner windows and frosted glass and high-set windows to ensure privacy.

While keeping an open floor plan, “rooms are defined with framed-out openings to appeal to those who like traditional design,” says James. Gables and shed roof elements, familiar forms, create an engaging street scene with warmth and charm.
