Missy Brown has always had a passion for old houses and historic architecture. She began by sketching the spaces and homes she loved, a hobby shared by her great grandfather, a well known Boston architect. Missy received her Masters in Architecture from CU Denver in 2000 and started a career dedicated to residential design and remodeling historic homes.
Her career began in San Francisco where she designed and managed high end remodels that varied in size from a single bathroom or kitchen to multi-story additions. Whether it was a Victorian home from the 1880’s or a neo-Classical from the 1930’s, her designs were custom fit to the home, both striking and appropriate in every case. Missy’s strength lies in her ability to respect the old while seeing new potential for existing spaces. She believes that new architecture, when applied to historic settings, needs to preserve and enhance the charm and character of the old.
While gaining invaluable knowledge as a lead designer, Missy took on design projects of her own. Better Homes & Gardens featured her first ground-up home in 2004, a charming second home set on an inland lake in New Hampshire (see home page).
Missy and her husband moved to Denver in 2008 where she started her own firm, Missy Brown Design. Since then, Missy has completed two of the more exciting projects of her career. She designed & built a unique custom, treehouse in Evergreen, Colorado---subsequently featured in Colorado Expressions Magazine. A year later Missy completed a full-house renovation & addition to their own 1920’s bungalow in the east Washington Park neighborhood of Denver. Please see the photos on the website.
