Realizing Your Architectural Vision Through Our Luxury Residential Projects in Denver and Aspen

See your ideas come to life as the luxury home residential architects in our firm gain an understanding of your artistic vision and transfer it to paper and a 3D modeling design. This visioning occurs long before breaking ground for new construction.

Our design and architectural firm has earned a stellar reputation for meeting future homeowners’ goals by creating houses, spaces, and residential buildings that mirror our clients’ mental designs and desires.

Custom homes are a unique and personalized option for those who desire a one-of-a-kind living space to call their own. Unlike traditional homes, custom homes are tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of the homeowners. From the layout and design to the selection of materials and finishes, every aspect of your custom home will be carefully considered and planned by our team. Through the design process, we aim to create a main living area that truly reflects your individual style and taste. We work with you to customize every detail, offering you a level of flexibility and creativity that is unmatched. Whether it’s incorporating eco-friendly features, creating open-concept living areas, or adding luxurious amenities, we can provide you with a truly unique living experience that can’t be replicated.

With each new project, we attempt to make history by expanding the architectural art form. By implementing novel concepts based on sound structural principles, our architectural firm pushes the boundaries of engineering, aesthetics, and functionality.

All of our firm’s portfolio projects have made lasting imprints on the hearts and minds of our architects because of our close collaboration with our clients during the residential design process. For our architects, your luxury residential building should reflect who you are as a person, including your tastes, values, and aesthetic preferences.

An Architectural Firm That Merges Nature and Architecture

At Rowland+Broughton, our landscape architects focus on blending edificial exteriors with the glory of nature to create artful, organic scenes. Depending on the natural features of a new building site, we may adopt one or more architectural styles to create a seamless, cohesive showpiece that is also comfortable for everyday life.

Where possible, our full-service design firm prefers to incorporate natural elements rather than remove them while working on our firm’s projects.

In a place as gorgeous as the Rocky Mountains, a crucial part of our firm’s work involves mitigating our environmental impact. Each architect utilizes the latest technological tools and modern techniques to minimize any damage to the natural surroundings. We also suggest sustainable materials for every design project.

As one of the most trusted architecture and design firms in the country, we care about how your house looks. Each architect wants passersby to immediately recognize your home as a one-of-a-kind piece of art that complements and enhances what Mother Nature has created.

The best compliment we can ever receive would be for you to say that your house looks like it has always existed in its location.

Why Luxury Clients Choose Rowland+Broughton

Discover why discerning clients select us at Rowland+Broughton over other high-end residential architecture firms in Denver. Most of our private clients hold vital positions in society, shaping the future of our culture, economy, and politics. As such, the individuals who hire us as their architects possess demanding aesthetic and design preferences that usually center around beauty, luxury, and traditional or contemporary design.

Our Client-Centered Approach

At our residential architecture and interior design company, each future homeowner is at the heart of our process. Everything centers around our clients, including the building site selections, material choices, design concepts, final executions, and more.

We hope that our design projects will remain part of each one of our homeowners’ everyday lives for decades into the future. To facilitate that aspiration, we view the special people for whom we design and build as the inspiration behind all of our luxury residential designs.

A Superior Client Experience

Most people who engage a licensed architect expect little more than a couple of meetings, a few drawings, a 3D design model, and periodic construction oversight. When it comes to most of the other high-end residential architecture firms and designers, that description accurately encapsulates the client experience.

At Rowland+Broughton, however, we do things differently.

Our design experts, interior architects, and support staff put together innovative, immersive experiences for our homeowners, allowing them to take active roles at all stages in the architectural process. We remain committed to providing immersive experiences that homeowners will fondly remember while raising their families or living out their retirement years in their new custom homes.

Taking our clients through the design process is a crucial part of ensuring that your vision and requirements are accurately translated into a tangible and functional space. This process typically begins with initial meetings to understand your goals, preferences, and budget. From there, our architects will present conceptual designs and sketches to give you a visual representation of your ideas. As the project progresses, our clients are involved in various decision-making stages, including material selection, interior design choices, and incorporating any necessary changes.

Our architects also provide regular updates, including 3D renderings and physical models, to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the final outcome. By involving our clients in this collaborative process, we can successfully create a design that aligns with your expectations and creates a space that meets your specific needs.

Stewards of Nature 

At Rowland+Broughton, we consider ourselves stewards of nature and the environment. Our firm focuses on:

  • Minimizing our impact on the local environment
  • Reducing our carbon footprint
  • Offering passive solar building designs
  • Encouraging a responsible construction process
  • Instituting policies for sustainable development

Our green approach to our design projects for both indoor and outdoor spaces allows our homeowners to live guilt-free in a veritable piece of art.

Our Unparalleled Experience in Mountain and Urban Settings

Architects and interior designers that work in Colorado must remain highly adaptable to succeed. The diverse pieces of property that we encounter in and around Aspen and Denver require a deep knowledge of the natural features of the Rocky Mountains in general and the local terrain, specifically.

We understand how much experience is needed to change gears and build a house above a sheer rock face after completing a residential tower on a previously leveled property. You can rest assured that you’re getting the complete architecture package with R+B.

Our Creative Problem-Solving Skills

Knowledge and experience come in handy when dealing with rugged terrain or big-city bureaucracies. However, as home architects, we must hone our creative problem-solving skills if we wish to meet the needs of our clients and create a viable house design.

Whether you would like abundant natural light in your modern dining room or desire an infinity pool carved into the rock, our architects possess the ingenuity to make your vision happen.

Our Logistical and Budgetary Excellence

Pulling off modern luxury projects demands keen attention to detail, superior organizational skills, and the right connections from an architect. As one of the most trusted firms in the region, our architects work with quality suppliers to ensure that we can receive the materials we need to complete our projects on time and within budget.
