design et al are delighted to announce that Duet Design Group have been shortlisted for Living Space – Global Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2019.
For inspiration, the client provided Duet Design Group with a magazine article that they enjoyed, and the designers creatively interpreted it into an entire home that was tonal, textured, and subtly beautiful.
This uniquely designed custom home was created for an affluent couple with grown children and their growing brood of grandchildren. This sprawling ranch style home is rich with textures and finishes. The homeowner hired Duet Design Group to take their vision of a serene, tonal, textural dream home and successfully implement every detail. The collaborative team effort between the builder, architect and design team was the reason this project left no detail unattended. The inspiration that drove the direction of this home was a grand living space that was perfectly positioned to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful views over the Rocky Mountains.
The grand area is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows and stone. It is the perfect setting to cook, dine, relax and entertain. The south wall opens up completely to a covered veranda that looks out to the exquisite pool deck. The customised upholstered doors that are used to set off the master suite are truly amazing. Duet Design Group created many unexpected and understated architectural elements to give every wall special attention. The lower level of this space consists of a comfortable recreations space, “bunk room” for the grandchildren, 2 guest suites and an entomology studio for the homeowner’s hobbies.
The south walls that open up onto the covered veranda is one of Duet Design Group favourite aspects of the final design. It creates a light-infused space that could otherwise be overwhelmed with the darkness and weight of all of the interior stone. This home is in the middle of Sedalia, CO, which is more rural and connected to the mountain terrain. This home gives a sense of being in the mountains, but while still being refreshing and city close.
