We've broken ground on one of our new commercial projects - the Collegiate Peaks Bank located in the RiNo neighborhood of Denver. Below are a few shots from the progress of the pour this week.
Comprised of dark masonry, steel, glass, and cross laminated timbers, this commercial project embraces structure as finish and the balance of lightness/transparency vs solid/security. The large glass volume houses the public spaces and sculptural stair within as the cross laminated timbers fold up and over, it structurally supports the folding roofing material above as structure also acts as the warm finish within. Formally, the bank is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional portal framed industrial building
