BLENDING HISTORIC CHARM WITH FORWARD-THINKING DESIGN
The team at Ortho-Fi had outgrown their current space, which had them split between floors. Together, we landed on a unique opportunity for the forward-thinking tech company: an old Ford Model-T assembly plant with a rich history in Denver. Our design blends the early 1900s warehouse-style architecture and history with OrthoFi’s modern branding to create a fun, flexible environment with a strong sense of place.
Working on the first floor of a 106-year-old building proved a significant design challenge. Through extensive, yet careful demolition, we met the high-density programming requirements without losing the charm of the historic space.
We designed 1,600-square-foot “Town Hall” space with stadium seating to accommodate the company’s 200 employees. To make this space a draw for employees, Elsy’s design deliberately kept workstations simple. By providing a variety of areas in which to work, the design encourages collaboration and empowers employees to choose the work environment that best suits their needs.
“Resi-mercial” areas close to employee workstations with coffee, games and adult beverages provide opportunities for employees to connect and recharge. The end result is a space that both celebrates the historic character of the building and exemplifies OrthoFi’s innovative culture.
