Freight Residences in Denver, Colorado by Dynia Architects

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Article source: Dynia Architects 

Housing development in Denver is booming, especially in the newly revitalized River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver.  Unlike the majority of apartment buildings in the area, Dynia Architects’ Freight Residences rejects the typical models of development.  The building has a sense of intimacy and privacy, reduces the homogony of multifamily development, and targets the underserved urban family market.

Colorado Outward Bound School Micro Cabins by ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Article source: ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Located on a steep hillside in a lodgepole pine forest, these cabins were designed as micro dormitories for the Colorado Outward Bound School. The cabins sit lightly on the landscape, directing views from private spaces towards trees, rock outcroppings and distant mountain views of the Mosquito Range. More public “community” views are directed into social spaces that develop from the organization of the cabins in relationship to one another. These community spaces are made up of front porches and the negative spaces between cabins.

Independence Pass Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

At the edge of a nature preserve, the Independence Pass Residence has sweeping views across an alpine meadow to the Roaring Fork River and the Rocky Mountains. The house stretches between two knolls, forming a threshold to the views. A series of textured Vals quartzite walls extend into the landscape on either side, giving weight to the lower level. The upper volume is a glass and wood pavilion with a roof that floats on slender stainless steel columns. Its position on the site, linear shape and the use of glass, steel and quartzite gives great strength to this mountain home.

LC-140 in Colorado by Låda Cube

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Låda Cube

\”In 2013 Låda Cube set out to change how we use and think about our walls.

Fueled by our belief that traditional stick-built walls consume needless time, energy, and resources, we set out to develop a better technology. We couldn’t be more excited about the results!

We created a wall that is infinitely flexible and allows for rapid modifications of spaces, a wall that is transportable, a wall that is cheaper, and most importantly, a wall that is beautiful.

Colorado River Bridge Hotel by Michael Jantzen

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Colorado River Bridge Hotel is a design proposal for a very site specific luxury eco-hotel that would span the Colorado River in the form of a large bridge. The design exploits in great detail, the wonders of a specific site on the river without disturbing it in any diverse way.

South Lowell Apartments in DENVER, COLORADO by Workshop 8 Architecture

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Workshop 8 Architecture 

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.
