The Mishell Residence will always be one of my favorite projects, primarily because the owners, Barbara and Jeffrey Mishell, were such great clients. The Mishells had very clear ideas about what they wanted for their new home in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, but there was a great deal of trust and rapport between designer and client. Set on a beautiful wooded site with clear views to the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide, the 3,500 sf home is the retirement home for the couple, who wanted to make sure that there was adequate space for their children and grandchildren to visit – most of whom live just an hour and a half drive away. When guests are not visiting, all of the Mishell’s main living can take place on the main floor of the house, leaving the lower level walk-out and the upper level primarily for visiting family.
