Tucked into a hillside in Larkspur, Colorado, this striking, clean-lined structure deftly straddles both East and West. Low-slung flat roofs, exposed steel beams and expanses of glass impart restraint, while plaster and stone add richness and warmth. Nods to the owners’ Moroccan heritage include the central courtyard orientation, decorative metalwork and arresting zellige tiles.
