SEM ARCHITECTS SOUTHLANDS Alberta Development Partners New Town Center The high visibility retail shops are located at the entrance to the Southlands project located along E-470 in Aurora, Colorado. The project consists of five separate buildings that front the overall development.

Each component of the facade is uniquely detailed and its identity is distinctively different than that of its counterpart. The warm tones of the brick and the lush landscaping work to create a relaxing and inviting environment that the end user will feel comfortable in for extended periods of time.

  • 12. SEM ARCHITECTS SEM ARCHITECTS SEM Architects FUNCTIONALLY MODERN After 10+ years in our current space, SEM Architects interior needed to be updated. The design of the space was infused with new textures and a more contemporary color palette. The studio space takes advantage of the floor to ceiling window walls and abundance of natural light which allowed us to introduce a deeper darker paint scheme, that offsets the richly colored work spaces. The carpeting brings the whole space together by using a more textured ashlar pattern of tile, that brings dynamic movement to the floor. The main reception area and reception desk were redesigned to incorporate a new wood display wall that is set off by a contemporary and monolithic desk, with rich colors and subtle textures.

SEM ARCHITECTS DPS CREDIT UNION Westerra Federal Credit Union Traditionalism The Denver Public Schools Credit Union is incorporated into the redevelopment of Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. The design concept for the credit union was to integrate the old school building feel, with that of a new up to date banking facility. This concept was achieved by combining classic forms, traditional fenestration, and appropriately scaled materials. The entry feature of the building recalls the traditional brick gable of the old school houses, while the new horizontal window patterns articulate the more classic school look. Oversized masonry was used to bring the scale of the building into a more cohesive design, while the color and texture of the brick bring out the quality and permanence of the financial institution.

While the design of the facility was driven by the Lexus image package, the common design element was the two-story showroom volume. This large volume of space is accentuated by a minimalist glass curtain wall that creates a warm and inviting image to the passerby. The remainder of the building is constructed with warm colored pre-cast concrete panels that create a consistent cap along the top of the curtain wall pieces, and work in contrast to the glowing showroom piece. The buildings entry feature provides for a dramatic approach as the consumers enter the site, and allows for easily identifiable and accessible services.

Colorado Northwestern Engineering Company Iconic Retail 1000 South Colorado connsisits of two speculative retail buildings on an urban infill site in Glendale, Colorado. The site, located along Colorado Boulevard, has limited frontage, and posed a variety of challenges in creating viable visibility for retailers. This challenge was met by creating an iconic architecture that creates a billboard effect perpendicular to the main thoroughfare. Building A features a large internally illuminated glass structure that soars out to the street with large over scaled numbers, while Building B uses a vertical glass tower to bring a presence to the back of the site. Each of the building’s glass features are complimented with contemporary masonry anchored corners that create a strong mass which balances the transparent elements and ladder frame canopies that create a unique play of light and shadow to the facade.

The design concept for Westmoor 7, is an elegant mass void relationship as the window pattern rhythm is set off by the organic form at the entry. The entry feature’s senuous curve is starkly opposed to the punched and ribbon openings throughout the remainder of the building’s facade. The building’s materials reinforce this concept as they are represented by pre-cast concrete panels, and glass curtain wall. Along the southern facade, the entry walk turns and continues along the edge of the building and leads the pedestrian to an outdoor gazebo, providing relief from the high plains and its sun.

The forms of the building are clean and sharp and as two opposing grids come together they reveal the entry feature. The materials differentiate the internal uses as the conference rooms and common spaces are articulated with horizontally patterned stone and curtain wall system, while the open office plan follows a more traditional stone pattern with punched openings. The executive offices line the western elevation, maximizing the day lighting opportunities with floor to ceiling glass and a curved metal panel facade.

The campus design concept provided for each building to have its own associated parking deck, while also providing a variety in building forms and details. Buildings are coupled together to create positive outdoor spaces, and public gathering spaces, while other buildings in the campus take on a more formal approach as they address the street edges and entry sequences. The materials of the buildings are a blend of pre-cast, brick and stone, all of which are engrained in their Colorado heritage.

  • 58. SEM ARCHITECTS STEVINSON Imports Stevinson Automotive Sleek modern This remodel of a 20,000 sq. ft. previous domestic franchise facility provides an elegant, high line showroom and display area for new and used import sales. The concept for the new dealership was to inflect, in its design, the level of sophistication and class that is associated with the imported automobile. These ideas are portrayed in the building with its clean lines, the transparency of the ground floor, and its use of simple, elegant, materials. The gentle curve and the clear aluminum metal panels allow the light to reflect off of it while the clear glass ground floor creates the crispness of a newly detailed vehicle.

  • 59. SEM ARCHITECTS STEVINSON Toyota West Stevinson Automotive Regional Image This new Toyota dealership is located in the Denver West area of Lakewood, Colorado and anchors the southeast corner of the Colorado Mills Mall Development. Located off of 6th Avenue and Interstate 70, this site commands a distinctive building. The design concept for the dealership is centered around its corner showroom and its visibility from the interstate. While the forms of the building are somewhat reflective of the opposing foothills to the Rocky Mountains, they aspire to create a certain tension or visual interest that entices the public. The hard angles and their juxtaposition to each other, create a variety of exterior spaces while also providing a visual link between the forms. The transparency and verticality all inspire to create a visually dynamic and naturally lit building that is warm and inviting.
