Tucked in a secluded court and perched high above the golf course in Cherry Creek’s DCC neighborhood, the muted 1984 contemporary home lacked appeal. The decades-old dwelling was in desperate need of an update, but the location was unmatched. The owners—a couple who recently relocated to Denver for work—saw enormous potential in the residence.
“We chose the site more than the home,” the wife says. “And we absolutely fell in love with the breathtaking views.” The expansive rear wall of glass revealed an impressive panorama of the city skyline and distant mountain range; it also encompassed the private golf course and meandering creek below.
The couple’s enthusiasm for modern design and sustainability had grown in appreciation over time and informed their search for an architect. After talking with several firms and winnowing down the list, they selected Boulder-based HMH Architecture + Interiors. “They really wanted to have a great relationship with their team and have fun while doing this project. And we were able to bring that,” explains Harvey Hine, HMH founding partner and lead architect.
