We are a 50-person architectural firm located in Denver, Colorado. For over 40 years we have provided a full range of services including the planning, programming, and design of buildings for colleges, universities, schools, libraries, justice facilities, office buildings, cultural venues, and housing. We have twice been awarded the American Institute of Architects' Firm Award for "a distinguished body of work" and numerous local, regional and national design awards.

We believe architecture has the power to heighten human well-being and illuminate our cultural values. We are driven by a standard of excellence which provides the highest level of ethics and professionalism to our clients. We embrace thoughtful and responsible design in all aspects of our lives and we constantly strive to create buildings of architectural significance and responsibility.

Our work is developed within a collaborative atmosphere which cultivates research, analysis, and deliberation into judicious decision-making at all levels. Vigorous exploration of client goals is coupled with a detailed examination of their functional needs. This understanding is artfully transformed into three-dimensional space which inspires the daily life within the building. Physical patterns and the cultural fabric of each place are carefully studied to appropriately respond to each site's unique physical and social context. Materials and systems are selected which respect and sustain our planet and the thoughtful expression of building craft and technology are economically integrated to bring the defining statement of character and identity for each of our clients.

The leading edge program for DU's Daniels College of Business includes state-of-the-art spaces for a large undergraduate student population with gracious accommodation of graduate and executive education programs. Additional conference capabilities support the University's important mission of community outreach.

Well proportioned tiered case study classrooms were developed based on a national review of effective precedents and a full scale semester-long mock-up tested by actual classes. Other spaces include high-end executive facilities, a center for managerial communication, and a large commons area serviced by a coffee shop and catering kitchen.

The new building frames the eastern edge of "Graduation Green" at the intersection of South University Boulevard and Evans Avenue; University Hall to the south and the Margery Reed building to the north form the other edges of the green. The tower of the new building anchors the east end of the axis of the Pioneer Plaza to the west of the Green.

The building features a brick color and pattern that complement two important nearby buildings. Reflections of their delicate stonework, color and pattern, accent its openings.

Three tiers of underground parking are concealed beneath the building with discreet access at the northeast corner of the building.
