5280 Home magazine has gone to 6 issues a year starting with this new February/March issue! Check out all the great design coverage the magazine offers including this fabulous Cherry Hills home by Semple Brown Design.
Last year I worked with Modern In Denver on a story about the Colorado Army National Guard Readiness Center and how it was inspired by the modernist architecture of the Air Force Academy campus. Now there is a new building worthy of inclusion among the world renowned architecture of the campus. Polaris Hall or otherwise known as the Center for Character and Leadership Development (CCLD) was designed by the same architectural firm as the rest of the campus - Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). I could go on, but it is really a great story and definitely worth a read. This issue also features a fabulous modern home in Boulder with terrific views by HMH Architecture. Pick up a copy!
Denver Life Magazine publishes a new Showhouse issue each year. This year I was pleased to be selected as the feature photographer. The 2016 Designer Showhouse is a collaborative effort between Denver Life Magazine, Caliber Construction, Alvarez Morris Architecture and 15 different interior designers, with the goal of raising $30,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver.
The house is open to the public September 10-18th. If you don't have a chance to see this fantastic house in person be sure to pickup a copy of the September issue!
Melding artistry and an extraordinary setting, this home by RKD Architects settles into place along Canyon Creek in Colorado. While photographing, I marveled at the fact that this surprisingly intimate 2 bedroom house is situated in what seems like it's own private canyon.
I've had the pleasure to work with Green Box for several years documenting each year's unique art installation. This year artist Patrick Dougherty (and a lot of volunteers!) built this incredible structure entirely out of local tree saplings. "I always look for starting points when planning a work, and in this case I was interested in the petroglyphs of the area and, particularly, renderings of the human form," Dougherty said. "I thought the wild pattern of feet might make an interesting starting point." It's a fantastic art piece - this is a great opportunity to appreciate up close the work of this world-renowned artist. Luckily the sculpture won't be coming down anytime soon so check it out if you're in the area.
Colorado weather can often surprise and sometimes mess with a photographers schedule. In this case a dramatic change of weather was very welcome - two days before this summer issue cover shoot we had a heavy snowfall! 75 degrees for the next two days made this shoot possible. Another fun shoot with the 5280 team!
