Kennedy Residence Boulder in Colorado is a modern house from Semple Brown Design that features a floating and inviting layout, a beautiful view of the yard and outdoor pool, vistas and cliffs along Boulder Creek, and a convenient screened porch that offers a lovely extension of the backyard.

This modern house from Semple Brown Design, consists of a central part and two wings, making the kitchen design the center of the family life and providing more privacy to bedrooms.

Attractive architecture, spacious architectural interiors with large windows, gorgeous wood and natural stone combination, elegant landscaping and the front door design are just a few takeaways from this modern house design project.

House design description from Semple Brown Design

Located on 12-acres of quiet ranch land and adjacent to the buff-colored stone canyon bluffs directly east of Boulder, the site for this project was unique in that its orientation was not about distant views, it was about directing energy inward and creating a peaceful intimacy within the site itself.

A heavily wooded pocket of land set the stage for this particular design challenge of weaving the house through a maze of cottonwood, elm, and spruce.  The plan was organized in a very organic fashion; three wings (each responding to geometries driven by the mature trees), connected to each other and hinged by public spaces and courtyards.

The first wing welcomes guests into the main hallway and acts as a connecting axis into Wings 2 and 3. It provides clear views to the west past the screen porch into the private courtyard and towards the east where it provides seamless and expansive views of the open-space.

The flowing and unobtrusive layout of this wing, allows the kitchen to function as the heart of the house; for the dining room and screen porch to act as extensions of the backyard; and for the living room to peer out over the open vistas and cliffs along Boulder Creek.

The second wing emerges from the family room off of the kitchen and bends back to create the children’s rooms and a secluded master suite at the end of a long stone hall. In its flow this wing creates a natural marriage between the public and more private, intimate spaces within the home.

The entry court is framed by a stone wall that bends around the garage, play room, barn, and guest suite creating the third wing.
