Scandinavian-inspired design transformed a dated 1950’s ranch style house into a two-story signature home. Its location in a family-friendly, Durango neighborhood near the river lends itself to creative expressions.
The clean silhouette is achieved, ironically, through a heightened attention to detail. Shou shugi ban (blackened, literally “burned”) accents complement the blond siding and eave-free roof line. Cove lighting creates a dramatic, yet whimsical, entry by highlighting the oversized, pivot entry door, which is reminiscent of a vintage Airstream traveler.
We were continually impressed with how many of Mark and Jim’s design suggestions ended up being used in our final house design. This project was a challenge but Mark and Jim kept it from being over whelming. And the end product is our favorite house yet! We have worked with several contractors and builders over the years and our project with Agave greatly exceeded our expectations.
