Located in Denver’s Hilltop neighborhood and designed for a growing family (two children were added from design to completion), this urban home features numerous indoor/outdoor connections. The children have play spaces and room to spread their wings. For the adults there is space for all types of entertaining. We made extensive use of sliding doors that pocket into the walls and disappear. Two sets of doors meet at a corner of the living room without a corner post; when open, the room “explodes” into the outdoors with no interruption. The house expands seamlessly to patios for bar-b-ques or fireside chats. Flexible interior spaces can accommodate salon entertaining, charity events, and formal dining.
