2016 Art + Architecture Weekend. THE TOUR.
We are excited to announce the 2016 TOUR venues and teams!
565 West Pacific Street, unit 314
THE VENUE: The project involved the vertical integration of two separate condominium units. During this process, the interior aesthetic was totally overhauled with the introduction of local Telluride influences.
THE TEAM: JERRY LABONTE, EMILY BALLOU, NARCIS TUDOR, MAX STRANG
537 West Galena
THE VENUE: Located in the heart of Telluride, but nestled in the aspens at the end of one of Telluride’s hidden-treasure streets, this home was originally built in 2007 by Al Simonian. Almost 10 years later, the new owners decided to change the interiors to suit their more contemporary taste. This is not your typical mountain home. The kitchen transformed from a traditional u-shaped chef’s layout with cherry cabinets to a cleaner, more contemporary white kitchen featuring a beautiful Calacatta marble island. The oversized mercury glass pendants added the finishing touch of bling. A new brilliant white limestone wrapped fireplace and floating walnut shelves, brightened up the living space and highlighted the gorgeous views.
THE TEAM: ALLY CRILLY, CATHY SCHWINDT, GARDENSTORE,
411 West Colorado
THE VENUE: 411 West Colorado is one of many historical homes built along Colorado Avenue in the 1890’s. The recent restoration of the structure began shortly after the purchase of the property in 2013. Caring for a historical home came naturally to the new owners who share lifelong involvement with historical preservation. This project included lifting and stabilizing the foundation, adding a full basement for additional living space, reconstructing deteriorated structural members, and bringing the home up to modern-day standards.
THE TEAM: ANTHONY BURGOS, DON L WILLIAMS, HALI JANE SCOTT, JOE MCCLURE, KRISTINE PERPAR, KYLE TANGUAY
110 North Oak
THE VENUE: Since 1913, the historic Sheridan Opera House has entertained and delighted Telluride residents and visitors alike with everything from award-winning musicians to live theater. Take a step back in time to the early days of the Sheridan Opera House with a vaudeville variety show featuring silent films, performances from the Young People’s Theater, Danielle Jenkins and Melissa Harris, tours with George Greenbank and more! Also get a sneak peak of the new SHOW bar designed by interior designer Sefra Maples and Architect Peter Lundeen, and built by Osborne Construction. Enjoy a 1920s-themed dessert from pastry chef Elena Levin.
THE TEAM: ALLIE SCHERICH, DANIELLE JENKINS, ELENA LEVIN, GEORGE GREENBANK, SEFRA MAPLES
302 North Willow
THE VENUE: The historic brick structure at 302 N. Willow, constructed in 1892, was originally housing for local nurses. The current owners fell in love with the strong simple brick form, and engaged the Sante Architects team to complete an interior and exterior renovation in 2015. The goal of the renovation was to uncover and reestablish the prominence of the historic brick portion of the home while creating a more sensitive and compatible relationship between it and the additions made to the home since 1892. The structure’s history makes the home a fitting venue to display the work and stories of some powerful female voices. Vignettes from “The Hispanic Women’s Project” an original play based on true stories of local Hispanic women, will be performed throughout the tour.
THE TEAM: ESPERANZA REYES, JENNIE FRANKS, PETER SANTE, SANDRA CHEVRIER
430 West Colorado
THE VENUE: 430 West Colorado was a derelict structure that was essentially forgotten. The 127 year old house was falling down, and rear yard was crowded with abandoned cars and trash. This property was anything but attractive. Fortunately the Millers stepped in and took a rough canvas to a complete work of art. This included moving a historic house, excavating a large basement, stabilizing adjacent structures, and adding a completely new house attached at the South of the lot. Many HARC approval meetings took place during 2013. They created extensive construction documents that actually went dormant for a year while the owner was deciding to build. Finally in the Summer of 2014 Bill Ward Construction took on their bold vision, and built the home today. TruLinea Architects constantly pushes details, space, and light in all of our homes. This house is proudly standing right on the sidewalk for perpetual enjoyment.
THE TEAM: KEVIN BOX, PATRICK LAGUENS, LUKE TRUJILLO
300 Elks Park
THE VENUE: Perched over the charming, historic town of Telluride, Colorado, this peerless 4-bedroom penthouse boasts sweeping 360-degree views of arguably the world’s most magnificent box canyon. Conceived by renowned New York architect and designer Alan Wanzenberg, and built by Telluride’s Fortenberry Construction, this 6,000 plus-sq-ft property encompasses the building’s entire top floor. The quality, design, and location are second to none — humbled only, if at all, by the majesty of the mountain peaks that fill its vistas.
THE TEAM: DAVID CHRISTESON + KORAL DELATIERRA, TRANG PHAM, (MIKE WENTWORTH AND ROSIE CUSACK)
THE VENUE: Tipi village in Elks Park. To the Native American of the Great Plains, a tipi meant one thing -- home. In fact, tipi is the Lakota word for “living in.” Today a tipi can be many things: temporary or permanent, traditional or modern.
THE TEAM: COLORADO YURT COMPANY, ANGELEE AURILLO, FLAIR ROBINSON, SARAH SHWAB, STUDIO FRANK, TWEED
820 1/2 East Columbia
THE VENUE: Inspired by historic mining cribs, owners Sue and Rick Heinz, along with Jodie Wright/One Architects imagined and designed a modern miner’s crib. Expedited by BONE Construction’s team of artisans, “Miner’s Rest” was born in 2006. Exemplifying the principals of today’s “Tiny House” movement, Miner’s Rest has all of the creature comforts in 308 sq. ft.
THE TEAM: KATE WILKONSON, DJ UNICORN BOSS, ONE ARCHITECTS, SUE WHITE HEINZ, C.I.D., STEPHANIE MORGAN ROGERS + NEW LEAF DESIGNS
