Zeppelin Station Awarded AIA Western Mountain Region Design Excellence Award
Zeppelin Station, the immersive, 100,000-square-foot creative workplace and culinary concourse received an AIA Western Mountain Regional (WMR) Design Excellence Merit Built Award.
Designed by award-winning Dynia Architects and completed in 2018, Zeppelin Station was built to better connect the River North (RiNo) neighborhood, known for its diverse and active community of artists and innovators. The ground level boasts a market hall featuring retail tenants in fashion and design industries, as well as street food vendors, two bars, and a full-service restaurant. The project features indoor-outdoor open spaces, high ceilings, natural light and native plantings in the exterior landscapes. Above the market hall, three floors of office suites offer roll-up garage doors that provide access onto green roof terraces overlooking the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountains.
“Pleased to have our talents recognized for the design of this multi-purpose, public-private building at the northern edge of the evolving community of RiNo. It is a thrill and an honor to contribute to the revitalization of a long dormant slice of the City of Denver,” says Stephen Dynia, FAIA, Dynia Architects.
The AIA Western Mountain Region Design Awards program recognizes excellence in design, planning and construction of projects located anywhere in the world that are designed by AIA/WMR architects registered and licensed within the six-state region. The intent of the design awards program is to honor the highest standard of design in response to user requirements, site, context, climate and environment. Each entry, regardless of size or classification, is judged individually on the basis of overall design merit.
