Shift Top House by Meridian 105 Architecture

The Shift-top house is a renovation and addition to an existing brick bungalo in Denver‘s Highlands neighborhood by local studio Meridian 105 architecture.  The original structure, with solid concrete foundations and a brick exterior shell proved to be a good base for an addition, and an opportunity to save cost on excavation and recreation of these components. The design team’s solution was to remove the roof and add upwards, popping the top on the original home.

In all, three bedrooms were added to the second floor, and a rooftop deck & office to the top. At the first level, the rear wall of the home was removed and replaced with a full glass facade and covered patio.  A dramatic interior void connects all three floors with an open staircase.
