1830 Blake Salon – Continuing the evolution of R+B’s Denver studio — set in the 1892 E.B. Millar Coffee Company building in Denver’s Lower Downtown Historic District — the team re-imagined an existing upper level as a multi-purpose salon-style space. The vision of the thoughtful reincarnation of the wide-open, 2,798-square-foot salon included creating multiple gathering areas for collaboration, conversation, and meetings among team members, clients, and colleagues. Against the existing brick, a backdrop of clean white walls also allows for an in-house gallery, where the works of emerging national, international, and Colorado-based artists are highlighted.

With the lower storefront level, which features open studio space, private offices, and the Creative Lab, 1830 Blake offers an inspiring contemporary workplace with biophilic and ergonomic features for the team while reflecting, engaging, and supporting the surrounding community.
