forest street edward hawkins house
Built in 1949, this mid-century modern home on Forest is one of more than a dozen other homes designed and constructed by Edward Hawkins. That same year Hawkins purchased the land to develop a subdivision that would later become realized as Arapahoe Acres. It is there that Hawkins’ influence of/on modern architecture is overwhelmingly apparent. In 2007 this home was found in disrepair. The renovation is sensitive to the simplicity of the floor plan, the materials, and Hawkins’ innovative attempt at passive/solar construction. The addition emphasizes certain historic gestures (facade banding, floor/ceiling glass, brise soleil) while establishing a sense of newness.
The interior design for this project was done in collaboration with Terri Peters of Peters Windley Design. Her amazing eye for color and relentless search for materials were instrumental to the success of its transformation, they not only fit the budget but also the strong aesthetic of the house .
