Woodbourne - Completion / by Anna Slowey

One of our recently completed projects includes the commercial tenant improvement for Woodbourne -- a capital management company here in Boulder, Colorado. Their office space is located within the upper level penthouse of Boulder's only high rise office building. Built in 1955, the historic building was landmarked during the renovation process. 

Short floor to ceiling height provided the challenge to fit all required systems (ie heating, cooling, ventilation, fire sprinkler, lighting, electrical, fire alarms) while still maintaining a comfortable clear ceiling height. Responding to this challenge, our team designed and utilized a wood slat dropped ceiling over the main working spaces made of reclaimed wood from packing crates. Pendants playfully pop through the slat ceiling in a manner that responds to the organic serpentine edge of the slat ceiling as well as the black basalt to carpet transition below.

In addition to creating a warm textural element above, we incorporated honed limestone at feature walls such as the entry, black basalt floor,  and white oak flooring to bring softness and comforta to this space dominated by glass and mechanical systems. Custom walnut clad steel filing cabinets with waterfall black granite tops serve to separate circulation from working spaces.

Additionally, the layout and orientation celebrates the outdoor rooftop patio that fully steps into the sweeping views of Boulder and the Flatirons that begins as a horizontal ribbon within the space.
