Bluebell Home

Located in Boulder, Colorado, the client was interested in maximizing the site while remaining a "good neighbor" in an established community. A modern interior with pops of bright color is balanced by a softer, more organic palette on the home's exterior. Details abound, such as a tilt up glass window wall connecting the kitchen to an outdoor bar, a glass handrail at the stair, and myriad built-ins.

Thanks! The window unit itself is made by Hurd. Because of its large custom size, it could not have the standard crank operator and operate as a true awning window. So we had to get creative! We used automobile hatch struts on either side to provide the lifting and holding mechanism. Hurd awning locking levers and hinge hardware were used. The result is a heavy window that is very easy to open! Since it's a hybrid solution, Hurd was clear that there was no warranty.

Best, Maggie
