1900 Sixteenth Street Lobby Renovation

Denver, Colorado






5,250 SF


Scope of Work

Interior Design, Experiential Design

1900 Sixteenth Street is an 18-story mixed-use office tower adjacent to the iconic Millennium Bridge, linking the Central Platte Valley to Lower Downtown. Designed in 2008 by Tryba Architects, the original design features a light-filled two-story lobby and a unique landscaped entrance plaza surrounded by ground floor retail and tenant amenities. 

The newly reimagined lobby space reflects the vibrant spirit of Denver’s evolving Union Station neighborhood and forward-thinking users the building has attracted. The design concept centers on activation with pockets of seclusion and openness, visceral and inviting natural elements, mixed and honest materials and elements of scale to offer variety and pay homage to the grand entrance.

Japanese textured black clay tile creates a darkened backdrop in the light-filled room, accentuating the green plant life and custom warm wood seating structures. Local artifacts and reading materials line a library wall, while a commissioned installation by Denver-based artist Theresa Clowes suspends local Cottonwood sticks into a collective body.

Natural light, warm woods, green plant life and local artifacts create an interior connected to place
