Denver Crime Lab

The new Denver Crime Laboratory building takes the pivotal position next to the police offices and the court building in the heart of the Golden Triangle neighborhood.

The building is a configuration of self-referencing elements and ideas, composed to make a different image at every corner. From the steady, solid, brown tiled basis intersected with embrasures of windows, jetties out the mix of fully glazed and aluminum coated building floors.

The glass facade flows from the uniform and two dimensional to indented, from blue tinted curtain wall bordered by silver frames to silver surfaces of aluminum pierced by random set of windows and from rectangular to alternating zigzags mimicking the DNA double helix.
