Hot off the press! DEMESNE was named to LUXE Magazine’s 2018 Gold List

From established talents to rising stars, the 2018 LUXE Gold List celebrates creators of the inspirational homes featured within the publication’s pages—the architects, interior designers, builders, and landscape architects that shape the vision of a home. DEMESNE was featured in the July/August 2017 issue of Colorado LUXE for its innovative work on Aspen’s Hecht Residence. The home, built in the 1960s, and renovated with an Arts and Crafts style in the 1990s, was given a modern, simplified design by Richard Mullen of DEMESNE, who handled the interior architecture.

“The house was modern to start with, and we wanted to pay homage to that original vocabulary,” says Mullen. “We did that through exposing the original, heavy timber pyramidal structure, and removing years of decorative applique. We ended up with a finished project that caters to the client’s current lifestyle, reflected in the updated kitchen, bathrooms, a new modern fireplace, and a warm color palate.”

Founded by Jamie Olsen Ali and Richard Mullen, DEMESNE celebrates lifestyle and legacy in both the physical and built environment. Whether designing a ranch estate, mountain enclave, townhome, beach retreat, or boutique hotel, DEMESNE leverages its collective skills to craft unique environments and the objects that define them.
