Model for the collaborative and sustainable office of the future

Built in 1927, The Bindery on Blake is located in the up-and-coming RiNo neighborhood near downtown Denver. The venerable building originally served as a metal foundry, a commercial printing plant, and now as a hub for creative office space. The original brick building with riveted steel trusses, large open bays and abundant natural light offers a beautiful background for the studio of nearly 170 architects, interior designers and landscape architects. Occupying the two westernmost bays of the overall building, Davis Partnership Architects designed the space to serve as a model for collaborative and sustainable office environments. The interior design concept was simple: a series of crisp white boxes are inserted into the historic industrial shell. The juxtaposition of the modern against the old sets up the contrast between high design and the unique charm of the almost century-old building. Beyond this, the priority was to create a space that welcomes clients while stimulating the creative energy of designers. A mix of technology-rich workstations, impromptu huddle spaces, outdoor deck spaces, collaboration spaces and private conference rooms offers staff and clients the requisite tools and spaces needed to thrive and create excellent work.
