Carelli Residence

This 7,500 SF Boulder, CO residence combines mountain lodge and simple agrarian forms to create an aesthetic appropriate to Colorado and the surrounding rural environments and pastures. A continuous exterior porch recalls traditional prairie homes while mitigating the overall vertical scale of the house. The porch wraps around the back of the house terminating at a stone fire place ‘ruin’ and courtyard. The fireplace chimney is scaled to read as a remnant from a previous home, positioned to appear like a freestanding element.

The overall massing takes its cues from traditional farmhouses by enclosing the space between 2 simple gable roofed volumes. This enclosed space between the volumes functions as a great room with all main and upper floor spaces focusing in on it. The loft like feel of the interior is defined with 6’ sliding barn doors, interior windows and bridge like connectors.

Shape of chimney; I'm not sure what kind of stone trim we should have with our required cedar shingles; brick? slate? river rock? I'd love your guidance on this Cheryl

Chimney and lower porch with lots of windows are nice , but second level roof line is odd.
