the lucy house

Retaining the history of Denver and its neighborhoods is important to us at 063 and we try to keep our projects contextual and respectful. The Lucy House, named after its original owner, Dr. Lucy, is a prime example of historical reinvention. This single family remodel is a beloved home in the Highlands. Dr. Lucy added on his practice to the front of his home, as it was centrally located in the neighborhood. Dr. Lucy specifically catered to the Italian, Irish and the Latino population, who made up the majority of the population in the Highlands in the early part of the 20th century. Another reason we wanted to retain the charm and historical details of this home was because Dr. Lucy was a very well respected and involved member of the Denver community, and a City Councilman. He was a leader in getting the Highlands where it is today, including paving the roads. The neighborhood wanted to keep the history of this home alive, so we chose to reinvent it, as opposed to redeveloping it. Stay tuned to see more updates and pictures of the Lucy House.
