The South Terminal Redevelopment Program at Denver International Airport creates an on-site hotel and a Public Transit Center that will accommodate a rail line connecting DIA with downtown Denver’s Union Station beginning in April 2016. The soaring form of the glassy hotel sits atop a grounded podium form that supports a gracious public plaza connected to the tent-roofed Great Hall of the Jeppesen Terminal. Dramatic glazed grid-shell canopies accent the design and shelter plaza visitors and train passengers. Within the podium, passengers will be able to check bags as they get off the train or pass through new airport security checkpoint stations. The podium also includes a new bus center and ballroom and meeting room spaces to support hotel conference activities. Completed in 2015, the 519-room hotel carries the Westin banner. Flanked by new restaurant spaces, the public plaza will be available for community programming and events, and major new public art installations are integrated throughout the project.

About AMD

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 “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.
