Located on a 5 acre site in south Boulder, the Cherryvale Residence illustrates the transformative nature of remodeling a dated older home into a contemporary dwelling. The original house was a 1980’s two story cedar sided ranch, complete with a shallow, non-functioning wrap-around porch and large moss-rock and brass fireplace. These stylistic issues aside, the bones and general layout of the house were sound.

We started by stripping away all of the non-structural flourishes. We then proceeded by adding the north and south porches to extend the base and large expansive windows to capture the views to the foothills. The project is rounded off with an entirely new material palette inside and out to complement the stately nature of its position on the property and provide a lightness, warmth and sophistication to the interior.

The Rock House Offers Access to a Wild and Untouched Nature

Built on the slope of Mount Shefford, the residence bridges an aerial view on one side and an ascending, rugged topography, populated by rocks and maples, on the other. The initial idea for this project was to merge with the mountain, to nestle into the terrain until it becomes one with the residence.

Barton Hills Residence in Austin by Brett Grinkmeyer Architecture

Situated in Barton Hills, a South Austin neighborhood characterized by mid-century homes, this 2,900 square foot residence is strategically located on the lot to take advantage of the site’s expansive canopy of trees.

Baillet Latour House / JUMA Architects

Although this bungalow on one of the stately driveways of Brasschaat had been on the market for a long time, JUMA immediately saw its enormous potential when the client came to them with the question whether a renovation was worth considering.

A Pacific Northwest Retreat on a Lovely Rural Property with Low-Bank Waterfront

This Pacific Northwest Retreat in the San Juan Islands sits on a lovely rural property with low-bank waterfront. The architecture responds to the site: one approaches through the trees to the front porch, then once inside the house, views open up to the water beyond.

California House by GLUCK+

Building on this site, long considered unbuildable, presented two challenges: first, to minimize the impact of the house on the landscape and second, to create sufficient flat area to be comfortable for outdoor activities.
