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.

Union Station Neighborhood Transformation in Denver by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Article source: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

A 14-block scar in the city’s urban fabric, the rail yards, track sidings, and service areas of Denver’s historic Union Station were underutilized for decades. In 2004 voters approved a tax increase to fund a regional transit plan with Union Station as the hub of the system. The redevelopment plan for the former rail yards involved master planning, urban design, and architectural design work to knit together light rail, commuter and intercity rail, regional and local buses, downtown shuttle buses, taxis, shuttles, vans, limousines, bicycle routes and pedestrian networks into an intermodal transportation hub and urban transit district.

This urban infill project juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of bulk plane restrictions and the need to provide privacy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex. This element becomes the focus of the residence both visually and experientially. It acts as sun catcher that brings light down through the house from morning until early afternoon. At night it becomes a glowing, welcoming sail for visitors.
