HARC Impact Studies

I was contracted by a property owner in the Telluride National Historic Landmark District to provide impact studies of a project proposed for a neighboring property.

The Telluride National Historic Landmark District is governed by the Telluride Historic and Architectural Review Commission (HARC). HARC issues, or denies, required Certificates of Appropriateness necessary for obtaining building permits pertaining to the erection, demolition, moving, renovation, restoration, addition to, or alteration of any structure or sign. All such projects are required to conform to the published Design Guidelines for Building in Telluride.

Neighboring property owners are noticed and public meetings are held during which public comments are taken. The images below were presented at such a meeting. Elements of the project were shown that are out of conformance with the Design Guidelines and the project will be revised and re-submitted.

I modeled the proposed project based on the plans submitted for HARC review. I perspective matched and composited the 3D model with site photography. Before and after images are shown below.

The renderings were an integral part of the project review and received several favorable comments.

Mark’s modeling…. is the best in the land!
