Student Work on Slot Houses Exhibited at Roth Sheppard Architects

Over the past semester, Professor Loftin’s studio has examined the Slot House typology that has developed in Denver, studied typical examples, and proposed new solutions. Students were able to use CARTA’s 2016 study, “Documenting Change in Denver,” participate in the City of Denver’s “Slot Home Task Force” with CARTA’s Director, and benefit from lectures by city planners, as well as reviews with developers, city council members, builders, and architects.

We are so pleased to see their contribution to this issue being exhibited at Roth Sheppard Architects. See below for further information about viewing the student work. As announced by Roth Sheppard Architects:

We are excited to announce the collaboration of Roth Sheppard Architects with the University of Colorado Denver, Laurence Keith Loftin III’s Studio IV. We invite you to come in, explore the students work and engage in the pressing issue of the Investigation and re-visioning of Denver’s “Slot House” The students have developed a range of solutions that will help us begin the dialogue on the Slot House typology.

We hope this conversation will help our city rephrase the issue at hand and progress toward more thoughtful and integrated designs. Guests will be welcome to come by our office between 9:00am and 4:00pm for a two week period, to view and discuss around our “Temenos Table.” We welcome developers, professionals in the field, along with any and all students within the University of Colorado Denver – College of Architecture and Planning. This is your chance to network and get involved on the subject.

— A “slot home” is a multi-unit residential structure consisting of attached dwelling units arranged side-by-side and primarily perpendicular to the street. Most dwelling units have an individual, direct entrance to the exterior facing a side lot line or center pedestrian court. Individual vehicular garages are generally located beneath each unit. Slot homes are also sometimes called “sideways-facing town homes” or “fraux homes.” — City and County of Denver
