Saunders completed the new construction of the Denver Art Museum's Administration Building in downtown Denver.
The Administration Building is a new 52,000-square-foot, three-level office building housing 150 employees. The building was designed in the spirit of LEED and features an exposed ceiling throughout. This distinct feature of open ceilings required numerous hours of three dimensional coordination and modeling.
The first two floors consist of open office areas with conference rooms and break rooms located in the center of each floor, divided into four separate areas symbolically representing chambers of the human heart. The basement consists of humidity-controlled storage with a dedicated HVAC system to meet specific environmental criteria.
