Located in the Hilltop area of Denver, Colorado is Sunset Magazine’s 2015 Idea House, which saw the transformation of a mid-century modern ranch. The 1954 home was renovated by Jonas DiCaprio, of Design Platform, to become a three story, 5,100 square foot home complete with five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
The outdoor landscaping was overseen by Jessica Lummus of Environmental Designs who went with a drought-tolerant design.
The original brick ranch remains and acts as the base for the second floor where they were challenged to match the new brick with the old. A large outdoor deck was also included in the new design.
The entry wall/screen were custom made to provide separation between the entryway and the living area, while also creating storage and sight lines.
Megan Hudacky of cky design designed the modern interiors and made sure to honor the original home’s era when it came to style.
Hudacky incorporated a combination of established local designers and artists, as well as up-and-coming ones to furnish the house.
The kitchen features mid-century-inspired tile that’s paired with hickory cabinets and brass accents.
You can tour the house through 9/13 – more info on tours here.
