A Sense of Place
As architects and designers, our firm’s work is centered on elevating the human experience through places that connect, sustain and inspire. Boulder Commonsis exactly this kind of place. As part of a multi-disciplinary design team, we immediately identified with the project’s goals of sustainability, community connection, and cost-effective execution – the “triple bottom line”. While sustainable strategies including a net-zero goal are defining characteristics for the project, we began with the premise that sustainability features don’t necessarily need to be obvious when experiencing the inside of the buildings. Clearly, a solar-panel clad façade signals that Boulder Commonsis special, but the interiors are designed to be much more than a showcase for sustainable construction. First and foremost, we wanted to create a comfortable and inspiring place for tenants, as well as a connection point to the local community. A place with meaning.
