Cherry Hills Village, Colorado
This home sits on a gently sloping five-acre property in the historic Village of Cherry Hills, just outside of Denver, Colorado. The client desired an architectural expression reminiscent of the grand shingle-style estates of the early 1900s. VITA worked diligently with the architect to preserve the dozens of existing mature oaks, maples and fir trees while incorporating the various design elements into the property. These included a 25,000 square-foot home, lap pool and pool house, paddle-tennis court, decorative pond, and expansive lawn. The result is a series of garden rooms with uncomplicated, pleasing forms and details constructed from natural wood and stone, as would have been done 100 years ago.
