As the art scene in Denver continues to flourish and grow, a new “Art Residence” has been crafted for the most serious art collectors who want a show-home for their artistic treasures. The residence is located in the ultra-exclusive NorthCreek development in Cherry Creek North, and was built to the exacting standards of Diamond Homes.
“The Art Residence features a gallery-like atmosphere that one would expect to find in New York or Los Angeles,” said Steve Diamond of Diamond Homes, which has built some of the finest homes in and around Cherry Hills and Denver Country Club. “The space itself is art, and is certain to accentuate any art collection. It was a pleasure to work with Western Development Group and designer Richelle Ashmore on this one-of-a-kind space. It is certainly one of the most unique residences in all of Colorado.”
The residence “fits” an artistic eye with walls and columns perfectly sized and situated to display paintings and images, and various rooms and niches for art installation. Custom designed lighting is positioned to highlight the display areas and draw a person’s interest and attention. A state-of-the-art heating and ventilation system provides the exacting temperature controls that are critical to fine art, and post-tension slab floor construction with wood, tile and carpet overlay, assures that even heavy sculptures can be safely placed in the residence. The home also has automated window shade controls that a person can program to filter UV light.
Western Development Group, the developer of NorthCreek, made the decision to create an Art Residence based on what the company believed is lacking in the marketplace for serious art collectors. Realizing the importance of artwork to a majority of their clientele, the team is delivering a home that provides a person a place to display and live comfortably amid their art.
“Many modern homes are designed with big, white walls and the art is easily lost in the vastness of the space,” commented David Steel of Western Development Group. “This residence is very well designed, built with the highest quality in mind and very hospitable to almost any art collection. We’re looking forward presenting the home to people who want a space where their artwork will be noticed and appreciated to its fullest.”
People who live at NorthCreek in Cherry Creek North walk to some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants and galleries from their elegantly appointed homes. They also enjoy the privacy of a beautifully landscaped, gated central courtyard, providing a colorful respite to the urban bustle outside the private gates, in addition to 24 hour concierge services, valet, a finely appointed grand lobby and entrance and controlled access. It truly represents a “Colorado urban” spirit.
