Yale ResidenceDenver, CO
Construction for the Yale residence, located in Cherry Creek North, was completed in the Fall of 2005 and designed for the presentation and display of the owner's art collection and habitation. The building is a two-story with a basement, constructed with a wood frame and masonry veneer with some stucco exterior finish. At the entry, a 7-foot-wide by 67-foot-long gallery spans the length of the residence culminating at the largest piece of the owner's art. OZ Architect Jim Bershof designed the building employing a series of curved roof forms that lift up from the South to the North and open up to the wintertime sun. Automatic solar sun screens were integrated to diffuse the direct sun during the brightest days, and overhangs were designed to have the full Southern sun cut off between April and August. In addition to the Renaissance CSMU masonry units, it has a Standing Seam Copper Metal roof system, metal-clad wood windows and ebony-stained Walnut hardwood flooring.
