The Skratch House exists as an extension of Skratch Labs in Boulder, Colorado. This project asked us to reconfigure and remodel a small condo in downtown Boulder for the founder of Skratch Labs, with an emphasis on creating an open kitchen, adjacent dining space (with sufficient room for large family dinners), living area, and an office all tied to the art of living, cooking, and teaching. Our client requested a wholly new experience within his home to entertain, film cooking videos, accommodate an abundance of gear, and serve as an oasis from an otherwise busy life on the road.

Iris House: Boulder, Colorado

The Iris House in Boulder, Colorado, sits on a beautiful site adjacent to the foothills. What began as a typical, one-story ranch was transformed into a spacious, bright, and modern two-story home that celebrates the family-oriented and active lifestyle of its owners. We were asked to design a second story addition to include a master suite, two children’s’ rooms plus shared bath, a laundry area, and a loft. The new space is connected to the existing main level via a beautiful steel and wood stair, which was conceived of as a sculptural light well. The exterior architecture gives no hint of the former ranch house massing; rather the new home represents a seamless and thoughtful solution to the “pop-top” endeavor. Exterior materials include stucco, steel, fiberglass windows, and cement board installed in a board and batten fashion.
