This project is an exterior and interior renovation of an existing house in west Boulder, in the beginning of the foothills.

Originally designed in 1974 by local architect Jeffrey Abrams, the house has gone through some unfortunate changes to both the interior and exterior.

Our task is to renovate and expand the existing interior including the Kitchen and replace the existing, failing exterior materials.  Like other more historic structures, a new order is to be imposed on the existing building, but within it, a greater respect for the original design intent is exposed.

Breaking the structure down into its constituent parts and analyzing both the original design and the new uses, the design process has been one of revealing and exposing, exposition and transformation.
