Global design firm Gensler has announced it is creating a new innovative workspace for its Denver firm. This workspace is comprised of 23,000 square feet of space at 1225 17th Street in downtown Denver and will accommodate 90 employees.
“From the outset, our goal was to create the best place to work in Denver,” said Jon Gambrill, principal and managing director at Gensler Denver. “Our entire office was fully engaged in the design process. This new space sets the new standard in Denver for a creative, collaborative work environment, enhancing our ability to innovate and deliver outstanding service to our clients.”
Gensler stated that it deigned the Denver workspace “to celebrate the firm’s collaborative culture of innovation.” The space will feature a coffee bar and cafe seating to increase interaction amongst employees. Gensler strategically selected the lower two floors of the building to enhance its connectivity with Denver. Entry to the workspace will be located on Lawrence Street where the lobby will open up to a stadium style staircase. Public and private events are also slated to utilize the space.
This project is pursuing a LEED Gold certification for sustainable design. LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, and is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.
“Throughout the space, the design strategy promotes well-being through ergonomics, acoustics, air quality and interaction with nature. Some of the key features include sustainable LED lighting with motion sensors, low emitting materials, energy and water saving equipment and interior plantscaping,” states Gensler Denver.
Gensler designed the 519-room Westin Hotel and Transit Center at Denver International Airport that is nearing completion, and 16M a mixed-use project that features office and residential space in Lower Downtown Denver at 16th Street and Market Street. Gensler has also designed a planned mid-rise office project at Belleview Station in Denver’s Tech Center.
