80 / BUILDING DIALOGUE / March 2019 On the heels of its 10th anniversary in down- town Denver, Page has moved its growing team to the top floor of the city’s tallest building, the iconic Republic Plaza. With window-lined walls, the new office of the international architecture and engineering firm is filled with light and embraces dramatic views of the mountains. Flexibility, the use of natural light and appro- priate acoustics were all priorities in the de- sign of the largely open space. The architecture studio occupies the majority of the office and features sit/stand desks, where the teams are organized into quads. The layout facilitates col- laboration and provides more intimacy. Addi- tional collaboration areas and smaller breakout spaces are also available for individual heads- down work. Integrating technology into the office was an- other priority, and there is a dedicated area for virtual reality equipment and demonstrations. Product resources are available to the interiors team in the materials library. Finishes are muted greys and whites with a dramatic slightly curved wooden-slat ceiling, in the reception and lobby areas, that draws the eye to the views. The same ceiling treatment is used in the largest conference room, where the wood cascades onto one wall. Pops of red, the Page brand color, are concentrated in the fur- niture and jewel-toned teal tiles create visual variety in the otherwise subtle material palette. “We wanted to embrace the views and let the office design support the open, yet intimate feeling with the mountains beyond,” notes Page Senior Principal Michael Mace. “We chose a muted palette with simple, clean furniture. The effect is really a quiet celebration of Denver. We have been here for ten years and we’re looking forward to a long future and more growth.” \\ Page Moves into Republic Plaza PHOTOS: Caleb Tkach/Tkach Photography & Design / Page Moves inot Republic Plaza /
