INTRODUCTION


8TH STREET COURT, GOLDEN COLORADO

The 8th Street Court project is located one block from Golden Colorado's main street.  This infill site offers opportunities for commercial and residential units.  Pel-Ona Architects and Urbanists provided site planning and architectural services and procured entitlement and building permits for the client, Mason Meadows LLC.  The site plan arranges buildings around a common courtyard and defines the street edges of 8th Street and Arapahoe St.  The new development includes two duplex buildings housing 4 residential dwelling units of approximately 2000 SF each, as well as attached and detached garages.  The buildings have been designed to respond to the traditional forms and pitched roofs of the surrounding historic residential neighborhoods as well as the flat roofed brick buildings on Golden's historic main street.

PRELIMINARY ELEVATIONS


8TH STREET COURT, GOLDEN COLORADO

The elevations of the new duplex units are designed to create a transition between the forms and language of the historic commercial center and the traditional character of the adjacent residential neighborhoods.  Porches and decks are utilized to activate the street and courtyard as well as provide private outdoor spaces.  Rooftop decks take advantage of views to the South and the West.  These third floors are set back from the building face to reduce their visibility from the street.
