Christmas Tree Drive

Project Team: Lawrence and Gómez Architects

Thomas Stanko Construction (now Harrington Stanko)

A new house in an established neighborhood at the foot of Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder, Colorado, designed for a family with small boys and large paintings

2 Buff sandstone panels clad the entrance and tall living room wing where the artwork is displayed.

3 Two-story hallway connects other spaces.

4 A practical kitchen includes built-in benches and cubbies.

5 Custom stainless steel sinks and bullnose edges frame slate tile countertops. The backsplash behind the professional style range repeats that material.

6 On the west side, just outside the kitchen, a trellised deck sits above the garage.

7 Upstairs, the master suite becomes a retreat. A French balcony with swinging doors frames the Flatirons rock formations.
