SERVING STUDENTS FROM ONE OF THE NATION'S LARGEST URBAN CAMPUSES
COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVERDENVER, CO
SUSTAINABLE STUDENT LIFE
One of the most energy efficient buildings on the Auraria Campus, the Confluence Building's sustainable features extend to the outdoor environment. A green rooftop incorporates a garden with plants, grasses, and a gravel surface to cool the building and filter storm water runoff.
INTEGRATING INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENTS
The building is designed to connect visually to outdoor environments. Student gathering spaces extend to a large covered plaza, an entry court with black granite seat walls, a third-floor deck, and to a green lawn with berms that invite relaxation and study.
This project was completed in association with Surface Design.
