The Brick City House is located in an older Denver neighborhood consisting primarily of small scale, brick bungalows with large entry porches. By organizing the program around the interior courtyard space, the building creates a defined street edge on the corner lot. Yet in opposition to many of the newer large scale and overly complex projects with generic building materials typically being constructed in the neighborhood recently, this project is a smaller, lower profile and more interpretive piece of architecture that respects the contextual urban form of its neighbors.

Brick City House Studio B Architecture + Interiors 1

It has a simple and refined palette of high quality materials consisting of handmade brick, walnut, plaster, and glass. In its urban setting with no large dominant views to the exterior, the house turns inwards toward the interior courtyard & pool with a connection to nature by focusing upwards on the sky. This concept is inspired by modern artists’ exploration into the connection of the sky, earth, and proportion.
