EMBODYING A PASSION FOR GREAT DESIGN IN A SKY-HIGH HEADQUARTERS
Global real estate investment, development and management firm Hines sought Elsy’s expertise when they decided to move their Denver headquarters to 1144 Fifteenth Street in Denver. This building was the first high-rise office development in Denver in more than 30 years. Hines developed and owns the 40-story Class AA office tower, which was completed in 2018. Located on the 36th floor, Hines’ new local headquarters houses both the company’s development and property management teams.
Elsy Studios had worked with Hines in several previous developments and understood their passion for exceptional design. We created a headquarters that highlights the best features of the building, while supporting Hines’ business objectives and enhancing their company culture.
The design maximized the impact of 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows with offices placed along the exterior, offering sweeping views of downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains. Glass fronts throughout the interior kept the space light and bright. Detailing on the interior glass was inspired by the lines of the exterior glass mullions, which evolved into a design statement that ensured the interior felt connected to the core and shell. The two wings of the space were anchored by a central hub with a large conference room and stylish break room, providing ample opportunities for employee connection.

REINVENTING A HISTORIC INDUSTRIAL SPACE FOR A NEW GENERATION
Solidifi, a Real Matters Company, is a leading independent provider of valuation and closing services supporting residential real estate mortgage services. They needed a highly adaptable next-generation space that would support their high-tech needs and accommodate future growth.
This office space is located in the historic Dodge Brothers Showroom, commonly referred to as the ‘Ballet Building,’ on the corner of Lincoln and 13th Street. Designed in 1919, the building features large perimeter windows, which we emphasized to maximize views of the city and access to natural light.
The interior space features an open, flexible concept with dynamic and multi-leveled lighting optimized for both collaboration and quiet, heads-down work. The high, open ceilings showcase the existing historical concrete structure with sleek, low-profile light fixtures. By streamlining the data cables, electrical conduit and fire systems, we were able to meet the tech company’s needs without detracting focus from the architectural beauty of the building.
