Balfour at Lavender Farms
The inspiration for the character of the architecture came from the farms and homesteads of Boulder County. Elements such as dormers, porches and broad overhangs along with the appropriate use of materials emphasize the agrarian vernacular. The building is organized in a “U”-shape with a large, south facing courtyard for residents. The landscape design is based on patterning and elements translated from agricultural roots. This includes some structured row plantings of lavender, a plant known for its beauty and therapeutic value.
