2009 Architecture Award of Excellence - Old Town Parker Development Council
This mixed use office, retail and residential building in Parker, Colorado is the cornerstone for a larger Victorian style multi-use development. MQ Architects worked with the owner to design a flexible commercial building that meets the rigid Victorian design guidelines for this zoning district. The size and occupancy for the 40,000 square foot building dictated a steel and concrete framed structure, but the design guidelines required a wood framed look. Modern materials and building techniques are rarely used on a Victorian style building of this scale, but the successful implementation of the details is a testament to the success of the design and the builder.
