The Syncline House in Boulder by Arch11

By • Jan 25, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Colorado is one of the places to get the most beautiful scene of nature in the United States and Boulder is well known for being a wealthy, intellectual hot spot where environmental and scientific ideas blossom into businesses.

It’s in Hollyberry Ln, a small and quite dead end street of South Boulder that Architect firm Arch11 designed this gorgeous 4,800 square foot residence.

The Syncline House mediates horizons and peaks, city and alpine meadows. Conceived as a frame for viewing the landscape, Arch11 meticulously modeled the residence within the site to insure that planes of glass capture ridge-top views while respecting the city’s height restrictions.

Built with innovative renewable energy systems and materials crafted to last centuries, the house is a model of cutting-edge sustainable design and attains a LEED gold certification.

Roof gardens allow the land to literally envelope the house, and expansive, retracting glass walls provide full views of the Flatirons to the west while connecting interiors with outdoor rooms.

Executed with uncompromising detail, surfaces meet with quiet precision creating a serene background for the landscape and mountains beyond.

    The environment pictured here alone is worth leaving NZ for… the house itself, I’d sell my cat and dog for!!

    Seriously, however, ‘a place where the town can be left behind’… was pretty close to the thoughts going through my head. I *need* a place like this!! A shame I don’t have the money. :(
