Brownstein Hyatt Farber Shreck

Occupying 3-1/2 new floors at the top of Denver’s most recent high rise, Brownstein wanted the design of their new law space to be a visual and cultural metamorphosis for the firm. As such, the concept for the space was to display a compelling, timeless presence that expresses modern strength and grace while simultaneously re-launching their iconic brand in a future-forward statement.

Paramount to the new design was the idea that the office should be so aspirational that employees would be drawn back to work out of sheer want and desire. Every floor is infused with abundant hospitality, daylight, and advanced technology, such as ultra-zoom-friendly office configurations and room reservation panels on each occupied room.

Tying the space together is a monumental open communicating stair that makes a clear statement to the firm about the literal and figural importance of connection between floors, and one another. Social areas at the landings on each floor have generous work lounges, emphasizing Brownstein’s community-oriented ethos and their commitment to new ways of working and mentoring.

With an impressive emphasis on internal hospitality initiatives aimed at making people feel valued, the space opened immediately to nearly 90% occupancy four days a week. Brownstein is now experiencing competition for room reservations. One of the best outcomes is that Norman Brownstein himself can routinely be seen working, mentoring, and socializing with employees—a story that tells itself!

"...we look at office as the investment necessary in our people, in our brand, and our communities to operate the way we want. We are leaning into the bells and whistles."
