Arch11 re-imagines this adventure sports and patio furniture store for the Boulder market as well as the flagship for stores throughout the mountain west region.
Built on and around an existing concrete block building, the program incorporates a full ski and snowboard service, rental program and two stories of retail space. The timber and glass structure is at once organic and modern, acting as a foil to the remaining original concrete block structure. The interior is daylit by an insulated translucent panel clerestory that diffuses natural light into the primary retail spaces while also creating a tangible connection to the outside environment. The glass storefront facade allows all of the product and activity of the interior to be on display to the busy street beyond.
The project was delivered via an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process with the general contractor and all critical consultants selected during the conceptual design phase. This collaborative approach resulted in the design, entitlement, permit review, and construction being delivered under budget and in a compressed timeline for completion prior to the store’s annual preseason sales event.
