COMPLETE / a sample of our accomplishments

Casa Cantilever / RESIDENTIAL

Denver, Colorado

This loft-inspired, light-filled space was mindfully designed with the finest environmentally friendly and low maintenance materials. Originally designed and built for the client in 1971, this concrete mid-century modern home required extensive internal renovation and environmental remediation. Rowland+Broughton’s restoration returns the home to its former glory while enabling a contemporary lifestyle. To emphasize and highlight the existing concrete character of the residence, the design introduced contrasting warm-tone wood millwork throughout, with a focus on the modern kitchen at the heart of the main level. 

Maison Bianca / CONDO

Aspen, Colorado

This loft-inspired, light-filled space was mindfully designed by Rowland+Broughton with the finest environmentally friendly and low maintenance materials. Elements such as concrete wall panels and sustainable flooring, provide a clean, modern aesthetic throughout the space. Inspired by capturing Aspen Mountain views and creating a feeling of spaciousness, the interior color palette is comprised of cool greys balanced with warm and soft wood tones. Evoking a feeling of weightlessness, a minimalist approach to furnishings and design details such as a floating, glass-rail stairway, encourage focus outward to the open space.

PROJECT SHOWCASE / projects underway

Doubletree by Hilton / HOTEL

Park City, Utah

The redesign of the DoubleTree Park City was inspired by the theme Discover Your Journey. Upon entering the hotel one symbolically embarks on an adventure and is welcomed by a forest encircling the lobby. A magnificent clearing fashioned from climbing rope by local artist Venessa Gromek, draws you in for a moment of rest. Moving through the corridor is akin to traveling through a meadow alongside a stream with the fluid carpet pattern underfoot and the surrounding color palette borrowed from the rocky Wasatch Mountain Range. Exploring the guest rooms, one ascertains each are designed as a cabin enclave with warmth and texture aiding each guest's revitalization for the next great day of discovery.
