Collegiate Peaks Bank RiNo - Rendering

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

Ivy League - Completion by Anna Slowey

We just wrapped up photographing our newly completed Denver residence we call "Ivy League." All the natural daylight and our client's furniture/art selections (many of them her own pieces!) made this project a blast to shoot. Comprised of glass, stone, blued steel, reclaimed cedar, and white painted siding, Ivy League is a wink at the modern farmhouse. A massive operable glass door system opens up the living spaces to the landscaped courtyard sheltered from the street.
