The Martinez International World Headquarters building site, located in Parker Colorado, posed some unique design challenges for Studio DH Architecture. With easements and building setbacks constraining an already irregular building footprint a solution was reached with a one-story, modern, glass and steel structure which embraces the irregularity of the site. Meanwhile a traditional masonry two-story structure anchors the building to the street corner.
Key design elements include a rooftop patio with views of Pike’s Peak and a Southwest inspired interior color palate were chosen to match the client’s artwork. From roofing materials down to the window shades, many considerations were made to reduce energy loads and provide a comfortable work environment.
