Sunshine Canyon Retreat


New Construction

New Construction custom home west of Boulder on Sunshine Canyon Drive.

This house is built on the same site up Sunshine Canyon as a former house lost in the Fourmile Fire of September 2010, just west of Boulder, Colorado.  The house looks out to the south to capture views from Denver to the Indian Peaks creating a syncopated panorama.  The entire structure is design as two large overhanging roof sections, like aspen leaves, sheltering the life within.
