A 60 second time lapse video of a custom Boulder County vacation home designed by F9 Productions Inc. Footage was filmed from 8:39 AM to 3:48 PM MST and entailed over 1265 still images each taken at 20 second intervals. The structurally insulated panels (SIPs) were installed by Precision Panel Colorado and as mentioned in an earlier blog post, "the SIP panels helped us to not only achieve amazing R-Values of 48 on the roofs and 24 on the walls but also vaulted ceilings throughout the home thus increasing the feeling of the interior spaces" We will be filming part 2 of this two part video series in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Friends and fans of F9, The March issue of Modern in Denver is out! The article highlights the rise of F9 Productions from seedlings in Architecture school to sprouts 4 years into their own firm. Sprouts, as you know, are the densest form of nutrition. The article highlights our "Doomsday Dwellings" but features the design process that has allowed us to thrive.
Starting from our skyscraper project, where like nature, we built complexity from simplicity, the pages turn to our road to becoming a firm.
"F9 Productions decided that every year they would do a project, independent of client’s work, that would spark their interest and propel them into the future... F9 became a fast-growing, reputable firm and their full time endeavor." - Modern In Denver
The article continues to highlight the features of each of the dwellings and spares no space for stunning visuals.
“It’s not about style or aesthetic,” Alex explains. “It’s about making good decisions.”
Good decisions are the backbone of F9 Productions. Challenging themselves to pursue progressive concepts while maintaining solid client relationships are what have allowed Alex and Lance to thrive during gloomy economic times. “We’re trying to stay nimble and on our feet like athletes,” Lance says.....
This foresight is what will allow firms like F9 to progress into an unforeseen future. Whatever the weather.
If you live in Colorado look for the magazine in your local; Barnes and Noble, Sprouts, Grocery store, or news stand. If you are a subscriber to the magazine your copy should be arriving soon. Some news stands are already stocked, if the March issues is not yet available look in for it in the next 7-10 days.
Over the summer of 2012, F9 Productions worked closely with a local developer to take an existing single story home in Boulder, Colorado and execute what is commonly referred to as "pop-topping" an addition. We utilized the existing footprint as a basis for design of the new home and then expanded upon the existing 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom design in order to create a 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that totals roughly 3,100 square feet.
Traditional in design, as pictured in the conceptual drawings below, allows the house to blend-in and enhance the neighborhood. However, one modern feature that helps the home stand out from the crowd is the sun deck located on the upper floor and adjacent to the master suite. From this location one is able to bask in the Colorado sun as well as peer to the flatirons beyond. We expect the trusses to be installed later this week. Stay tuned as this home develops further!
