Sign Shop

This unique addition to a vibrant Highlands, Denver neighborhood sign shop is defined by context and light. The project is shaped using two gestural arcs - one embracing the neighborhood, the other opening up to downtown Denver. The intersections of these arcs and a subliminal connection to the existing downtown street grid create a system of skylights that illuminate the various interior spaces. These skylights, along with the desire for interior spatial variation, create a roof plane that animates the exterior form and juxtaposes with the stoic brick box of the existing structure.
