Special Event: Elizabeth Schlosser Residence

Thursday, August 4, 2022

About the event: Explore an exceptional contemporary home in the Hilltop neighborhood and discover its thoughtfully designed interior and exterior spaces. Hear from architect David Lynn Wise and homeowner Elizabeth Schlosser about the inspiration for the house and the collaborative design process. Attendees will also be able to peruse the home’s art collection featuring artists working in Colorado and New Mexico in the mid-20th century. The evening will include drinks and light food.

About the house: Originally built as a 1950s ranch, the house was reimagined by architect David Lynn Wise in 2017. His contemporary modernist design retains details and character from the previous iterations of the home, including a glass-domed dining area constructed as part of a 1970s addition. The home is also notable for its craftsmanship, choice of materials and use of natural light. The outdoor area is inspired by Italian designer Carlo Scarpa, most evident in its striking water feature.

In leadership roles at Historic Denver, Historic Paramount Foundation and Colorado Preservation, Inc., she guided numerous preservation initiatives including the Lower Downtown Historic District, Paramount Theater, Justina Ford House and Mayan Theater.
