One of architect Charles Haertling’s many fascinating contributions to the city of Boulder, Colorado, is currently on the market allowing a peek inside this interesting house. Known for their frequent mix of modernism and organic architecture, his designs are highly memorable and frequently reflect the influence of both Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff. The Johnson house appears to be similarly inspired.

Unlike many other houses by Haertling, the Johnson house appears to have survived virtually unchanged since its construction in 1976. The following real estate listing photographs do not do the house justice, but still convey the unique character of it. Let’s take a look!

This space, above the dining room and kitchen, is partly open to the living room below.

The room has a fireplace at the other end with a small tiled nook beyond… for firewood, perhaps?

The whole house seems rather Goffesque, only less theatrical. These small windows are especially fun.
