UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS

REMODEL  |  BOULDER, CO

This mid-century modern split-level home had been a rental property and neglected by its owner and tenants for many years.

 

The design objective was to bring the home back to its glory by staying true to its mid-century sensibility while bringing it into the present century.

 

Major structural changes which provided a more "open concept" floor plan included:

  • Converted the existing kitchen into a study

  • Opened up the floorplan by knocking out a wall between the dining room and workshop

  • Converted said workshop into the new kitchen with custom laminate cabinets and stainless-steel appliances.

 

Major structural/plumbing changes which provided more usable bathroom spaces included:

  • Combined 2 bathrooms into 1 to make a grander Master Bath/Spa. Utilized glass tile and a turquoise counter to give a nod back to 60's style and hues.

  • Enlarged the existing hall bath to make a grander shared bath.

 

Additional interior design changes:

  • Removed all carpeting. Replaced with wood flooring in "public" spaces and carpet in "private" spaces.

  • Replaced all single pane windows with insulated Pella windows.

  • Wrapped fireplace brick surround with cold-rolled steel surround

  • Re-furbished wall wood-burning oven in closet and converted said closet into "bar"

  • Designed and installed new custom metal stair rail.

  • Added energy-efficient Mitsubishi mini-split air conditioning
