Atrium Campus

Recently redesigned by MAWD, Denver’s Atrium Campus serves as a hospitality-inspired, amenity-rich space built to attract a wide variety of tenants focusing on their wellbeing and connectivity between occupants.

  • Building on MAWD’s expertise in hospitality-inspired workspaces, the studio’s newly completed revival of Denver’s Atrium Campus, originally designed by I.M. Pei, has transformed Denver’s first high-rise into a magnet for leading creative and tech firms, providing a flexible and responsive workspace with modern amenities and “Wow” moments.

    For the historic renovation, Beacon Capital Partners appointed MAWD to bring Phillip Johnson’s expansive 27,000 square foot glass atrium down to scale. This was accomplished through the addition of a streetscape and Spanish Steps, providing tenants and guests with multiple seating options for work, a restorative coffee break, or an impromptu meeting. Unique to the Atrium’s entryway, visitors can find a front-of-house Bike Room, complete with lockers, makers tables, and tool storage space. The thoughtfully designed workshop not only supports the city’s biking trends but encourages individuals to enjoy time spent on Campus.

    Amenity Space
    Within the 23-story tower (originally completed in 1954), MAWD designed and implemented the interior architecture for over 9,000 square feet of communal amenity space. Complementing the Atrium’s warm and inviting fireplace, which furnishes a natural gathering space fit for Colorado’s mountainous climate, the wellness spaces include a tech-enabled gym and flexible yoga/sound bath studio to support the active lifestyles of established and newly-transplanted Denverites.
