145 dexter street // modern oasis
Listed for the first time since its creation, 145 Dexter Street is a residence that offers an enduring masterpiece of mid-mod luxury. The 1960s-era residence was conceived by Ream Architects and informed by a distinct challenge: to maximize the square footage of the home without any unnecessary disturbance to the lot’s beloved trees and shrubs, bearing in mind that Denver’s subsoil expands and contracts with the area’s unpredictable moisture. For Richard Quinn, principal architect of 145 Dexter, the conundrum sparked the inspiration for a floorplan yet to be mimicked in modern times.

architectural allure of 145 dexter street
The layout of the home radiates from an open-concept living area surrounded by 18’-high expanses of glass that capture the surrounding landscape. This floor encapsulates the essence of the era through its own unique lens with linear forms that are contrasted by patterns of dappled light and a quintessential, yet approachable conversation pit ideal for everyday use. Additionally, walnut wood finishes and marble flooring emphasize the mindful approach of using natural materials. Above the main floor is a cross-shaped walkway suspended so that residents in every upper-level room can peer down into the living area from shuttered openings. Natural light is available from all four walls in each of these private oases. At the axes of the walkway are built-in planters that further emphasize the home’s biophilic nature; a motif expertly crafted by Richard Quinn of Ream Architects.

The distinct silhouette of the home is defined by its lush surrounding exterior. Mature trees tower above the home, creating a resplendent juxtaposition between the linear structure of the residence and the organic forms of cottonwood branches. Garden boxes overflow with perennial and annual plantings while a verdant lawn beckons residents outside for al fresco gatherings.
