Denver, Colorado United States
Located in the heart of Lower Downtown Denver, FIRMSPACE is a co-working space for professionals seeking a refined corporate environment. Its floor-to-ceiling windows frame panoramic views of downtown and the mountains beyond from the 16th-story of 1401 Lawrence Street. The 22,442-square-foot space is a forward-thinking combination of workplace design strategy and business-oriented amenities.
The design takes advantage of the setting and maximizes views from most of the offices. While the perimeter glazing, clerestories and the use of transparent or opaque partitions allow daylight and views to the outside in the innermost offices. Translucent films, acoustic glass and a sound masking system are employed throughout the space to ensure acoustic and visual privacy.
The Page team sought to establish a client-forward environment where professionals could invite their business associates and clients for formal and informal meetings. There is no overt branding by FIRMSPACE, ensuring a more subtle experience.
Offices range from single-occupancy to space for a team of five people. Huddling areas, lounges, conferences areas and an event space all offer a variety of workplace experiences expected by professionals. Integrated technology also reflects the requirements of today’s mobile business world. Amenities include a fitness facility, dry cleaning services and food delivery service.
Inspired by the nearby Union Station, the finishes make up a rich color palette with hard woods and plush textiles contrasting polished white marble. Office furniture offers stand-up options for all desks and chairs, couches, chaises and other furniture are characterized by clean contemporary lines. In the cafe area, deep emerald-colored textiles in peacock blue, white tiles in herringbone patterns and delicate bronze light fixtures all recall the elegance of Union Station’s late 19-century Beaux Arts style.
