This 5-acre residence on Little Dry Creek is hidden along a gravel road within the rolling hills south of Denver. Surrounded by horse trails, wood rail fences and barns, the character of the site is pastoral and peaceful. The owners desired to preserve the rural character while creating areas close to their modern addition and renovation that are contemporary.
Dig Studio redesigned the arrival sequence starting with a dark, wood, horse fence along the gravel road accented by a modern address monument and entry drive that focuses on the new architectural addition. Visitors can park in a grove of pear trees and walk directly to the front door through a country cutting garden. A pervious paver auto court between the two garages allows for water to infiltrate but is also designed to function as an outdoor play space and parking area. The glass bridge of the addition is highlighted by a planted slope cut by stone walls that echo remnants of stone wall found on the property.
