We wanted to thank Colorado Homes & Lifestyles for featuring our Little Nell Residence in their November/December issue. Our Little Nell Residence was highlighted in an eight page spread title “High Drama in the High Country.”
Our own Charles Cunniffe, who was interviewed for the article, told Colorado Homes that “The intent was for the house to be sculptural in form—a kind of regional modernism.” Colorado Homes goes on to write that “He met the challenge with a lyrical design that moves seamlessly among three levels and connects to the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling windows and 2,000 square feet of decks and patios.”
Elements of the Colorado vernacular are evident in the generous use of native stone, metal and wood, as well as exposed timber rafters and large overhangs that provide sun shading. “The modern elements are the overall forms—flat roofs yielding to curves on the exterior and creating open spaces inside,” Cunniffe says. “The curve adds a little elegance to what otherwise would be a flat roof.”
We wanted to give a special thanks to Nancy Richman Milligan, who wrote the great article, and photographer Steve Mundinger, who so beautifully captured our Little Nell Residence.
