Doors Open Denver 2010
Doors Open Denver celebrates innovation and design within architecture. Participating buildings open their doors to let viewers look, experience and examine the buildings at their leisure.
This year, sites that were remodeled or underwent “adaptive reuse” were featured. Many former industrial buildings were remodeled within the stringent guidelines for LEED certification.
It is beautiful to see modern adaptations of design and efficiency within the shell of an older building. This unique combination of old and new enhances the building’s character and can be seen in the form of exposed brick and high ceilings from its earlier days, combined with modern furnishings.
The Doors Open event takes place annually, this year over the weekend of April 17 – 18, 2010.
Here’s another featured building that took part in Open Doors Denver.
