Up with People

Location: Broomfield, Colorado
Client: Up with People

This administrative and educational facility serves as headquarters for Up With People, an international organization promoting global understanding. The building embodies the spirit of Up With People in its openness and flexibility. Exuberant use of rich colors and textures, including native sandstone for both exteriors and interiors and large, sloping roof forms. A two-story lobby features an open stairway to the second floor and a dramatic gallery which exhibits Up with People’s colorful thirty year worldwide contributions. “Views for all” is a key design theme, implemented with stepped window walls, multiple building corners, and a carefully planned wall system for the open office plan.
