TAKING A TRAINING & PHYSICAL THERAPY FACILITY TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Transforming a dated office space in Golden into a dynamic physical therapy and sports training facility for Next Level was a true team effort. Designed for motivation and collaboration, Next Level’s facility features an energetic, bold infusion of color and shape, along with thoughtful programming that maximizes the usability of their state-of-the-art equipment.
The owner’s history as an NFL athletic trainer and the company’s culture of investing in their athletes’ success both factored heavily into the personalization of the space. The neutral color palette provides the ideal backdrop for flags that will be raised in the space to honor athletes who complete their training with Next Level – a ritual that started years ago with a Navy athlete who was able to keep her scholarship as a result of training with Next Level.
A custom ceiling element constructed of reclaimed trailer decking and painted wood slats adds visual interest, along with zigzags of blue and orange across the walls. Graphic film and motivational words throughout the space serve as visual encouragement to Next Level’s athletes. Air quality and ventilation are addressed with programmed operable windows that support an infusion of fresh air throughout the day.
The resulting space raises the bar for Next Level’s brand and creates an ideal environment for both their athletes and trainers.
Colorado-inspired Design for a Cause
Developing the first and only shared workspace for Colorado healthcare nonprofits was a labor of love for our team. Inspired by Healthier Colorado’s mission to elevate the wellbeing of Coloradoans, our team sought to create a space that paid tribute to our home state while providing a cohesive, flexible workspace that invited engagement and collaboration among the varied nonprofits who will call the workplace home.
We divided the 22,481-square-foot space into distinct areas identified by Colorado’s landscapes. The elevator lobby instantly welcomes you with elements of their office culture. A large mural of Denver’s skyline signals their urban location. Ceiling features are extracted and oversized elements of their logo; mountain peaks and a large illuminated drywall arrow creatively draw people into the space. The vibrancy doesn’t stop there. The existing oversized columns throughout the office celebrate the cultural and physical qualities of different regions of the state. We evoked the warmth of southwest Colorado with earth tones, a Rocky Mountain feel with blues, and a nod to Colorado’s agricultural tradition with greens and yellows. All of the graffiti seen through-out the space is one of a kind, curated through a collaboration with a local artist, Tuke One, and graphics/branding agency Make West.
The shared commitment of these nonprofits to elevating the health of all Coloradoans is reinforced and supported at every turn in the Health Capitol project, while allowing each individual group working within the space to feel like its area is distinct, creating a sense of place and connection. Health Capitol calls the space a beacon to attract needed attention to the critical work their nonprofits perform.

CREATING A HAVEN FOR EMPLOYEES
Colorado-based Weaver and Co. was founded on the idea of making a common medical procedure more comfortable for patients, an idea that is rooted in caring about people. When founder Dave Weaver decided to upgrade his existing office space, he wanted to provide his employees with a comfortable, inspiring place where they’d enjoy spending time.
Dave turned to Elsy to help him make over his 8,750-square-foot space in Aurora, and the team set to work, transforming their previously dark and dated warehouse into a bright and welcoming experience, taking input directly from the employees who would use the space. Scandinavian-inspired wood tones and form are bathed in light, cheerful colors, warming up the industrial feel of the space. In a nod to the company’s branding, the office incorporates shades of Weaver blue in each office.
The space further makes use of existing concrete floors, with strategic incorporation of a carpeting and area rugs. We were also able to take advantage of Dave’s personal art collection, displaying his savvy as a long-time collector and adding a personal touch to the office.
