Redeveloped on the former site of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, 9th + Colorado was designed as a creative neighborhood center that integrates with the existing urban environment. 9th + Colorado consists of 12 blocks four miles southeast of downtown Denver, and is home to several luxury apartment and condo buildings, restaurants, retail shops, commercial office space, and four acres of green space. In keeping with the developers’ vision for a truly unique built community, artist Andrew Huffman was commissioned to create two paintings for the exterior of the Block 4 parking garage. Architecture firm Gensler firm FlexFacades to work with their project design team and Huffman to translate Huffman’s paintings Modulated 32 (#1) and Modulated 32 (#2) to two panels, one for the north facade and one for the east facade. The resulting two large panels, each measuring 47’ 1” x 32’ (north facade) and 49’ 1” x 40’ 11” (east facade), are composed of smaller panels that are joined together. The use of FlexFacades cladding screens ensured that airflow would be maintained throughout the parking garage without compromising the artist’s work.
