This urban home in pursuit of reverie is located along the eastern edge of Denver’s Cheesman Park and was designed to repurpose the traditional shipping container structure for an elevated vertical form. Divided into four levels, the rectangular container form hosts traditional programmatic space while the stairs become sunlit appendages leading circulation through each floor. Its highest point, the removed studio, is a space looking upward, designed for isolated thought and introspection.
