Flight is a recent addition to the Taxi campus in the River North (RiNo) area of Denver, situated along the South Platte River where Globeville and the RiNo Arts District overlap. The campus is a mixed-use community of new and re-purposed buildings on former industrial land. The Flight building continues the linear “land scraper” geometry of the existing campus with massing generated by site and program influences. It is comprised of a two story, 100,000 square foot base supporting a shifted, faceted two story linear structure above with ends that extend beyond the base in a gesture of connectivity to existing and future buildings. 

The base building was uniquely programmed and designed for Boa Technologies, an innovative sports product company, and houses research and development, testing, marketing and display in the form of “habitats” that focus on individual sports. A sky lit stadium stair serves as the heart of the facility providing social interaction and communality. 

My role as Project Architect for both the Core and Shell building as well as the Tenant Improvements thereafter has been to preserve the design intent from concept through construction. I have worked on all aspects of the design from concept studies, drawing sets, Construction Administration and project representation in the form of drawings and renderings. 

Flight is LEED Platinum Certification
