A Fresh Take on Workspace

Canyon | 28 Office Building2021-09-09T11:31:28-06:00

Project Description

In an era when so many new office buildings are bland and boxy, Canyon 28 stands apart. This 43,000 sf building was inspired by the dramatic rock walls in Boulder Canyon to the west. Tall sandstone towers punctuate and ground the building’s steel and glass façade. The front elevations are rough-faced and taper as they climb, so the stone dramatically overhangs the walking area below. To achieve this aesthetic, massive sandstone units were precisely cut to fit together. The look of continuous stone was obtained by using a special rainscreen system, with very thin joints and no mortar. Special details and anchors were used to tie the mortarless stone to the concrete and masonry behind it.
