The Cultural Center in the heart of Denver anchors a rich heritage of fine art, culture and civic identity. With important contributions from world-renowned architects like Daniel Libeskind, Gio Ponti, Michael Graves and Allied Works, the complex is both a multi-use masterpiece as well as a cultural icon for millions of people in the Rocky Mountain West and beyond. This project is the final phase of the overall master plan for the Denver Art Museum complex. The earlier phases have included the Hamilton Building, two condominium buildings known as the Museum Residences, ground floor retail and museum spaces, a 1,000-stall public/private parking structure, and an important outdoor civic space known as Martin Plaza. Davis Partnership was the architect of record for all of these components. This nine-story mixed-use building consists of a 165-room boutique hotel along with 50,000 sf of office space, and a retail / office / showroom space. The hotel is known as “the ART, a hotel.” The design leverages the hotel’s proximity to the Denver Art Museum by fashioning hotel public spaces as galleries where both permanent and revolving exhibits will be displayed.
