Fontius Building

Located on the nexus of the major business downtown of Denver, the 16th street, this historic building parades its remarkable facade luster to the downtown strollers.

The four story structure, ostensibly Neo-classical in form, is decorated with muted Art Deco elements. The overemphasized eaves adorned with ante-fixes, as a part of the modern architrave configuration sits atop the meanders printed in terracotta tiles. The fluted pilasters with minimalist capitals and bases, a continuation of the ground floor columns combined with colored Solar system and ribbon terracotta cast ornaments show a studious coquetry of styles synthesized into a consonant composition.
