Conceptual Elevations of The Retreat - Cabin Architecture

residential architect denver

This project began as a single-story home in the historic Park Hill Neighborhood.

GMH By Design was hired to “pop-the-top”, creating a second story with master suite, a second bedroom and bath, and a rooftop deck.

This allowed us to open up the main floor. What was once a disjointed, broken-up spatial plan became an open space that inculdes the living room, dining room and kitchen.

The exterior improvements respect the historical context and character of the neighborhood as well as enhance its identity.

GMH By Design believes that design is the most important step of the process. This is where ideas are collected and weighed for need and want. Until a budget has been established, let the creative juices flow.
