Federal Project

The Anza on Federal

The Anza on Federal 2550 1434 Kristy

We are thrilled to be working with Highland Builders on their newest project, The Anza, which will flank the Federal Boulevard historic parkway.  This is a 26,000 SF, three-story building which will deliver thirty-five studio and one-bedroom apartments to our ever expanding cityscape. The development boasts gorgeous loft units, as well as a rooftop deck with both mountain and city views. While the design of the building is generally restrained, the entry feature is ornate, inviting and gives a nod to the rich cultural history of the area. The pattern is inspired by an art form which originated in Mexico-papel picado. These decorations are now used to celebrate many occasions including Día de los Muertos, birthdays and weddings. Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2020, so we will keep you posted on this project. In the meantime, we will be preparing our celebratory papel picado flag because great things are coming to Federal!

Located in Denver’s Bow Mar neighborhood, Craine Architecture and interior designer, Beth Armijo, collaborated on this stunning home, helping the owners realize their dream.  Context is always an important driver of the design process, as was the case with this project.  However, as architects, we also want to maximize the confluence of beauty and function.  We have overwhelming gratitude that we were able to work with such wonderful owners, and such a talented interior designer.
