The subtle beige and buff concrete and glass exterior of the 15-story office building, which frames splendid views of the Rocky Mountains, welcomes visitors with a breathtaking Grand Atrium. The 55-foot-tall space is marked by expansive internationally inspired artwork, complimented by a new ground-floor museum and a full-service Italian restaurant. At least 90 percent of the tenant space grants a direct line of sight to the outside and abundant natural daylighting. Efficient plumbing fixtures save more than 500 gallons of water each year, and conservation measures extend to landscaping, where drought-tolerant plant materials are combined with a grey water irrigation system that uses partially treated water.
