The Denver Art Museum renovation is to be performed on the North Tower, which was once the original tower of the Denver Art Museum. This renovation will be on every floor of the tower including two (2) below grade floors and seven (7) public floors above grade. The rooftop space which houses mechanical equipment will also be renovated.
The 210,000 SF tower was originally designed and completed in 1971 by Italian Architect Gio Ponti and James Sudler Associates. The North Building’s classrooms, studios and family spaces are central to the Denver Art Museum’s education programs. The building also houses a fine dining restaurant, special event spaces, primary entrance or school and youth groups, conservation lab, staff offices, security center and art storage for the Denver Art Museum.
