We are proud to announce that Aspen City Hall was awarded an American Society of Interior Designers Colorado Crystal Award. Being such an iconic project in our very own town, City Hall is a project that is near and dear to our hearts. We worked alongside a tremendous team to bring this project to fruition and could not be more proud.
Each area of the building is tailored to its specific program, with the floor plans creating a lively and varied interior architecture. Exterior materiality, detailing and form hark to the mining and light industrial era while the interiors are fresh, crisp and welcoming with undertones of the city’s new green logo. The art-filled interior provides a biophilic environment that enhances productivity and well-being. Views and decks overlooking the surrounding parks provide visual relief and access to the natural environment. North facing daylighting extends into the 135 desks and public interface spaces. Vertical circulation through the building connects all levels, ushering light to the building’s core. Clever use of channel glass fortifies the notion of transparency between people and government, while Council Chamber doors open to the public plaza, furthering the connection. The building has exceeded the City’s expectations and has become a lively city hub.
