About the House

The Home & Garden Colorado 2021 Designer Showhouse is a $3.585 million dollar contemporary home, designed and built by Work Shop Colorado, in one of Denver’s oldest and most established neighborhoods: Observatory Park. The neighborhood is known for its central location, and its blend of historic and modern architecture on mature tree lined streets. Observatory Park is home to Chamberlin Observatory, owned and operated by the University in Denver and built in 1890. The University of Denver was founded in 1864 by John Evans, the 2nd territorial governor of Colorado, and moved out of downtown Denver to Observatory Park in 1880. The neighborhood has the charm of a small university town and housed many professors and faculty at one time.

This modern, innovative home from Work Shop Colorado, is a market-ready home of almost 6,000 square feet on three levels. It’s designed to bring the outside “in” with huge windows, accordion-style doors, and multiple rooftop decks and patios. The focal point is a dazzling two-story atrium space in the center of the home with floating staircase nearby. Five bedrooms include en suites, and the owner’s suite opens to a roof top deck, yoga space, and spa-like bath. The home brings a new level of modern style to Denver’s architectural community and the Observatory Park neighborhood.

Fourteen local design teams are contributing their talents to create spectacular spaces in the house that not only highlight their talents and new design inspirations—but vendors have the opportunity to provide materials that enhance the home’s appeal, and guests are moved to donate, visit the home, and see the work.
