Wild Blue Yonder Brewing Co. is a contemporary gesture to the site’s long history and sets a prec- edent for future developments to come. The project is scheduled to be completed this fall. Located on a prominent cor- ner of Wilcox Street, the new development is a nod to the owners’ – Andrew, Rachel and Dean Wasson – U.S. Air Force background, capturing a strong sense of adventure throughout the development’s interior. “We moved to Castle Rock several years ago and immedi- ately fell in love the with charm and sense of community,” said WBY co-owner AndrewWasson. “Castle Rock is growing tremen- dously right now and the his- toric downtown Castle Rock area still has some of that original Old West appeal. The time was per- fect to pursue one of our dreams and capture this evolution of mixing old and new, bringing a new vibrancy to the town.” When looking for an architect for the project, the WBY owners knew they needed to find an team who could handle some of the challenges of the site. “There is a historic 1902 Vic- torian home and an even older 1887-built carriage house,” said Wasson. “We wanted to honor the classic buildings, but bring in a modern addition. We felt Clutch had the best vision to incorporate all our criteria. They established a design that gave a nod to the wild blue yonder, but not forgetting where you came from. The entire team has been incredible to work with since Day One.” Choosing to celebrate the process and not hide the beer production facilities, the interior places the brewery front and cen- ter with tanks on display from both the exterior corner and the interior dining area. The bar top design is aligned with the bars subtle Air Force theme, decorat- ed with an illustrative art piece displaying all the flights in the world currently in the air, filled with people exploring the wild blue yonder. “We love the large open design with soaring ceilings, large doors and windows that fill the space with natural light,” Wasson said. “One of our favorite aspects is the large bar with a one-of- kind countertop depicting flight paths, building on our adven- ture theme. The center of the bar will be Castle Rock, which we hope will be the starting point for manymore adventures in our lives and our patrons’ lives.” In terms of design, Clutch Design Studio pulled inspiration from other beer halls of similar volume, with a modern farm- house palette expressed in the wood paneling and decorative lighting. “We have created an atmo- sphere that pulls people in from the street corner and activates the experience from the front patio all the way through the bar and into the rear courtyard,” said Kristen Tonsager, head of interior design for Clutch Design Studio. “The expansive volume of the space captures that feel- ing of the endless blue sky and allows visitors to ‘choose their own adventure’ by exploring dif- ferent seating experiences and adjacencies to the different func- tions of the brewhouse.” s Clutch Design Studio designs Wild Blue Yonder space Clutch Design Studio designed Wild Blue Yonder Brewing Co. as Castle Rock’s newest addition to the Colorado craft beer scene. Haselden and BMC Invest- ments recently celebrated the topping out of Financial House, which is located at Second and Detroit streets in Cherry Creek. The 70,000-square-foot, eight- story office space will be the first all-glass office building in Cher- ry Creek North and also will be home to 5,000 sf of retail. “Thisprojecthasgoneextreme- ly smoothly,” said Haselden project manager Zach Belsey. “That demonstrates how much hard work has gone into it.” Designed by 4240 Architec- ture, the space will offer tenants a modern, luxury office building that reflects the unique style of Cherry Creek and offers an acti- vated streetscape with a public courtyard. The building lobby and court- yard are designed by award- winning interior designer Avro- ko; they have the look and feel of a hotel lobby instead of a tra- ditional office lobby. The lobby and courtyard feature a folding glass wall that connects the two spaces. The building’s four-sided glass curtain wall will put Cher- ry Creek’s dynamic location on displaywith panoramic views in every direction. “We are excited to celebrate the progress that we’ve made to date at Second and Detroit with our partners, Bow River Capital, Haselden Construction and 4240 Architecture,” said Matt Job- lon, CEO of BMC Investments. “With its location on one of the prime corners in Cherry Creek North and its unique glass cur- tain wall design, this building will not only be an enduring asset for the community, but will also set a new bar for commer- cial real estate in the area.” The project is slated for com- pletion in early 2019. s Haselden tops out BMC Investments’ Financial House in Cherry Creek North Designed by 4240 Architecture, the space will offer tenants a modern, luxury office building that reflects the unique style of Cherry Creek.
