Conceptual Elevations of The Retreat - Cabin Architecture

spire – denver

Spire creatively combines urban living, state of the art technology, and contemporary lifestyles to create a living place at the center of the city.

It is a high rise residential tower emerging from a seven story parking garage podium. It is clad in glass and steel, mirroring the materials of the Colorado Convention Center across the street.

In addition to parking and 41 stories of residential living, other amenities include street level retail space, fitness center, social clubs, business centers and pools.

GMH By Design believes that a projects context is as important as any of the clients needs. This means each and every one of our projects takes the location of the project into consideration; local as well as the actual property itself.

GMH By Design is all about the comfort of our clients with the final project. For most, a remodel, addition, or new building will be one of the most expensive purchases they make. In the case of The Retreat, the client wanted to double the size of the original cabin while at the same time maintaining the feel of a secluded cabin.

The definition of retreat is a place of privacy or safety. The intent of GMH By Design when designing The Retreat was to provide just that a place for the client to rest, relax, and enjoy their privacy in a safe comfortable place.
