A lot in Aspen was divided in half to make way for this white, slender home by US studio Rowland + Broughton, which is meant to bring "a sense of clarity and elegance to a traditionally ornate Victorian form".

Called Game On, the dwelling is located in the Colorado mountain town's historic West End neighbourhood. The project resulted from the splitting of a large property that contains a multi-storey home built in the 1890s.

826 Valencia: Breathing New Life into the Tenderloin

An address in San Francisco carries with it a certain prestige—a position at the latest startup, millions of dollars in venture capital funding, the highest rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the nation. Suffice to say, Bay Area locals have a mindset far removed from the rest of the nation. You aren’t considered wealthy until your net worth has topped $6 million, and no one raises an eyebrow over an $8 cup of drip coffee or office space that goes for $100 per square foot.

When Only the Best Will Do: Rustic Oak from Admont Abbey Floors SoHo

When you hear the words “$17 million loft in Manhattan,” the next thing that crosses your mind probably isn’t an 11th-century Benedictine monastery in southeast Austria. But if you’re name is Joseph A. McMillan Jr., that’s exactly what you think.

McMillan is the CEO and Chairman of DDG Investment Partners, an urban design/development firm that burst onto the New York scene in 2009 and now has offices in Florida and California. Improving the built environment  is their mission. Stopping pedestrians with jaw-dropping design is their calling card.

Setting the Stage for Sustainability: Arrigoni Woods Featured in Art Basel Exhibit

Thursday, February 9, 2017
For us, it was a dream come true on so many different levels. To see our product and craftsmanship featured in a joint exhibit by Art Basel and Design Miami, the global forum for art and design, was in itself a proud moment. None of us had dared to imagine the world’s most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics exploring our work in a museum-quality exhibit.

From Dated 1950s Home to Dream City Dwelling Before and After

Set in Denver’s quaint Bonnie Brae neighborhood, this two-story International Style home hadn’t been touched since it was built in 1950. Amanda Precourt, owner of AJP Realty & Design, was drawn to the home’s retro details—blonde exterior brick, a boxy facade, flat rooflines, glass-block windows in the entryway—and generous lot size. But small and scant windows, compartmentalized rooms and passé hard finishes (read: pink and turquoise tile) made the interiors dark and dated.

Smart technology helps a house in Aspen, Colorado, stay on its sustainable course.

The Aspen residence of architects Sarah Broughton and John Rowland aims to leave the pristine local landscape intact. “Every drop of water that lands on the property finds its way to the bocce ball court, which is our storm-water filtration system,” Rowland says. “By the time it leaves, and heads to the aquifer, it’s as pure as it can get.”

Simplicity, In All Its Complexity

“People say modernism is minimalist—if everything looks so clean, it must be easy,” Jones says. “In truth, it’s exactly the opposite. It’s easier to apply more and more layers of wood to cover up the sins of framing or the natural materials. Making it trim-less or with minimal trim is more challenging. It’s a challenge we as a company and our carpenters are into. We like to make it as clean as possible we look for those details that can show off the contemporary style.”

As the builder, Tom worked with a team of architects and designers who listen carefully to the homeowner's requests. "They wanted to have the look of a Texas ranch house, and we achieved that with the stonework and the wider covered verandas that invite you to just sit outside and enjoy the view," Tom says. Attention to detail, from the hammered steel metalwork and the wire-distressed wood for the interior to the careful selection of the reclaimed Austrian pines for both the floor and the ceiling beams, defines this home as both timeless and welcoming.
