The Mid Century Modern inspired York Street Residence is located in the semi-urban neighborhood of Denver Colorado's Washington Park. Efficient use of space and strong outdoor connections were controlling factors in this design and build project by West Standard.
Integration of indoor and outdoor living areas, as well as separation of public and private spaces was accomplished by designing the home around a central courtyard. Bordered by both kitchen and living area, the 450sf courtyard blends indoor and outdoor space through a pair of 15' folding doors.
The Energy Star rated home is clad in split-face block and fiber cement board at the front with the remainder clad in Colorado Beetle Kill Pine.
Xeriscape landscaping was selected to complement the homes minimalist design and promote sustainability. The landscape design features indigenous low-maintenance plants that require no irrigation. The design also incorporates artificial turf in the courtyard and backyard.
