In Boulder, Colorado, where interior architecture and designer Michelle Wentworth is located, the latest project she has shared with IGNANT is ‘NS Residence’, a sophisticated and ultra pared-back home epitomizing material restraint and craftsmanship.

Walking the line between functionality and aesthetic, the home cultivates warmth with little adornment or embellishment. With its linear set up, unobscured sightlines expand the home’s breadth of space. An open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area creates symmetry and allows guests to cook, eat, and relax together in the same setting. The home “explores creating quiet luxury and spaciousness in a small house,” Wentworth explains. “Full-height glass sliders open onto a simple courtyard, extending the interior and visually connecting to the space outside.” A material palette of concrete, lime plaster, and microcement was chosen for each material’s endurance, texture, and hand-rendered qualities. Textiles in muted linen and wool add another subtle layer of texture, while recessed strip lighting enhances the architectural linearity of the home. With its deliberately simplistic architectural statement, the project is redefining rural living in a location known for its positioning at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
