Celebrating 50 Years of Architecture

This year we celebrate 50 years of architectural service. Since the inception of Davis Partnership Architects in 1967, we’ve added several disciplines, expanded our base services and worked with some of the most prestigious names in the industry forming some of Denver, Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region’s most recognizable landmarks.

Through all these years a lot has changed but we continue to be true to our ethos: We are driven to create spaces that inspire, elevating the joy and dignity of the human experience. One constant has been the incredible people, firm, design, clients and community that have allowed us to attain and maintain this high mark for such a long time. For that, we must say thanks to all of you.






Davis Partnership Architects has been influencing the ongoing development of the Rocky Mountain West’s urban and rural communities for generations. While Davis Partnership is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary under the “Davis” moniker in 2017, its true architectural legacy began more than a century ago.

Under the names of Fisher and Fisher, Fisher and Davis and the modern-day Davis Partnership Architects, the firm has gradually taken its place as one of the largest, most influential design firms in the West. Since William A. Fisher’s downtown Denver architectural practice opened in 1892, the firm and its predecessors have shaped a great number of Colorado’s most prominent commercial, educational, civic and cultural landmarks as well as many of the most respected healthcare and research and development facilities in the nation. Built on the foundation of a broad and dedicated clientele, Davis Partnership has consistently demonstrated a level of service and design that has earned the trust and respect of clients and peers alike.

 Notable Work

The following projects are a snapshot of the elegant solutions we’ve provided to clients and our communities over the past 50 years. Some projects are bolder architectural statements while others are more subdued. As you move through our built environment we hope that you will be sure to take note of the spaces you occupy, how they make you feel and how they interact with each other. We hope your experience is as joyful as we intend it to be!
