Steel House

558,000 square feet
12 stories
Denver, Colorado

Light, air, and wellness take center stage at Steel House, a new office building located at 3100 Brighton Boulevard in Denver’s vibrant RiNo Arts District. Connected to a private, 13,000-square-foot elevated park, the unique facility offers tenants unparalleled access to enriching indoor-outdoor experiences and amenities.

Drawing on Denver’s industrial heritage while also looking toward its future, Steel House innovates on the possibilities of what a modern office environment can offer. The new building wraps around what will become the largest elevated private park in RiNo, allowing for one of the most impressive indoor-outdoor amenity collections in the city. 

Inspired by active industrial uses along the adjacent railway, Steel House's silhouette was designed to establish the building as both an iconic identifier and contextual anchor for the evolving RiNo district. Its highly visible tower serves as a new gateway to the neighborhood and signifies the building’s main entrance. 

Constructed of steel, the tower's height and articulation draw reference to the landmark silos that still exist in the neighborhood, while landscaped loggias soften its industrial edges. Beyond the tower, a metal channel grid defines Steel House's façade, modulating the scale of the large building. Expansive 11-foot-high factory-inspired divided light windows flood each floor with abundant natural light. As a result of the building's thoughtful massing, each floor will also have access to private terraces.

Within, the interior of the building is a reinterpretation of the exterior elements and a nod to the area’s light industrial history. A strong connection to nature is forged through the use of natural and honest materials, like stone, wood, steel, concrete, and by bringing large-scale biophilic design elements into the interior spaces.

With a focus on biophilic design, greenery is abundant in both interior and exterior spaces. Pictured below, the main lobby has a large vertical green wall, anchoring the space on a steel frame reminiscent of the building's iconic tower.

Pictured here is the multipurpose tenant lounge, featuring a barista bar and access to a furnished terrace. In total, Steel House offers tenants access to more than 10,000 square feet of thoughtfully programmed interior amenity space, all of which opens up to outdoor areas.

Located on the building's 6th floor, a robust collection of wellness amenities fully open up to "The Park" to provide truly unique indoor-outdoor experiences. This includes a state-of-the-art fitness center with a multi-use sports court and climbing wall, as well as a “movement studio” featuring an operable glass wall that opens onto a yoga terrace.

Robustly programmed and brilliantly landscaped by Future Green Studios, Steel House's unprecedented amount of outdoor amenity space offers cinematic views of the Denver skyline and forges community interaction with gathering lawns and furnished terraces.
