Research 2, University of Colorado at Denver
Aurora, Colorado, USA500,000 SFCompletion 2008
Echoing the architectural vocabulary of Research 1, Fentress’ design for Research 2 is the most recent addition to the University of Colorado at Denver’s new research park.
This second structure also focuses on flexibility in meeting the day-to-day requirements of the diverse clinical and basic science research conducted inside. The building reflects a compatible contemporary aesthetic, with clean lines and an accent on glass, metal and brick. Along with laboratory space, the building features amenities such as a ground-floor coffee shop, two-story corner break rooms adjacent to lab floors and numerous daylit conference rooms – all designed to facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers. Research 2 was designed in association with Kling Stubbins.
