Additional Background

Located high on a ridge with views of the mountains and downtown Denver is a set of spectacular semi-custom modern homes designed to take advantage of their sloping lots, ample views, and changing seasons.

Mystery surrounds this small enclave of modern homes, including questions around who designed the houses, why developer Art Swanson never finished his ambitious project, and how these homes remained a secret to many mid-century modern enthusiasts for so long! Come explore those secrets with us at this open-house home tour!

Presented as part of Denver Modernism Week 2018 in partnership with:
