INTRODUCTION


WASHINGTON VILLAGE - SINGLE FAMILY HOMES

Washington Village is a LEED-ND Co-Housing project located in one of central Boulder's historic neighborhoods.  It is just eight blocks from Pearl Street and steps away from local restaurants, shopping and recreation.  It shares the site with the former Washington Elementary School.  Washington Village features lofts, rowhouses, and detached homes as well as a shared common house.  In total there will be 33 private residences. Pel-Ona Architects & Urbanists designed the six single family homes that are the first phase of the neighborhood.  Each house will employs the latest in green building technology.  The mechanical systems include geothermal heating, photovoltaic electricity production and energy and heat recovery ventilators.  SIP (Structural Insulated Panel) are utilized in selected areas and buildings while all the buildings employ high performance windows & doors.

SITE PLAN


WASHINGTON VILLAGE - SINGLE FAMILY HOMES

The Site Plan above depicts six of the single family homes at Washington Village.  Each of them fronts onto the common park with a gracious porch.  In addition to this shared outdoor space, each home will have a private courtyard that is large enough for dining and gardening.  These spaces are highlighted in yellow.  The six building floor plans are designed to open up to their courtyards while the site plan is strategically choreographed to maintain privacy.

PASSIVE SOLAR


WASHINGTON VILLAGE - SINGLE FAMILY HOMES

The section above is taken through the courtyard of one of the proposed single family homes at Washington Village.  It demonstrates the consideration taken to solar orientation for each house.  The front of this house faces south (to the right of the image).  The vaulted ceiling of the dining and living rooms showcases exposed timber frame construction and hosts a clerestory that allows for natural light to reach the center of the building.  A light shelf reflects light back at the ceiling and creates a diffused glow while eliminating glare. 

Careful attention to roof pitches allows for natural light to reach the courtyards.  Each home has a second floor studio/bedroom.  In this case it is located above the garage.  It has windows that face onto the courtyard and provide interest to the intimate space below. Each home also has a full basement with large terraced window wells.  These wells are landscaped with native plants that are visually appealing from the lower level rooms and with large spans of glass, they provide natural light opportunities to the interior spaces.

ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER


WASHINGTON VILLAGE - SINGLE FAMILY HOMES

The six single family homes at Washington Village have been designed to integrate into the context of the existing neighborhood.  They all have traditional forms, large front porches and are one and a half stories tall.  The architectural detailing takes its cues from classic buildings that can be found in Boulder and historic neighborhoods throughout the nation.
