A new multi-tenant office building in downtown Castle Rock.
Conceived to fill the gap between available small-scale office space and single-company office buildings, The MOVE balances larger anchor tenant spaces mingled with smaller offices and co-working space. Located at the corner of the steeply-sloping 6th and Jerry Streets, the challenge of balancing site, program, and parking needs led to the design of a two-story parking garage that can be accessed on both levels; while the upper stories are cantilevered to shelter the sidewalks below.
The design uses construction materials as the finished building expression. Corrugated metal, both galvanized and rusted, is unfinished. Floors are concrete, stairs and elevator cores are ground faced concrete masonry, the structural steel is left exposed, and brightly colored panels emphasize where the upper floors are pulled out from the face of the building. Large openings use overhead sectional doors in aluminum frames while the rhythm of the punched openings responds to the views on all sides; and a large skylight creates a 2-story light well that floods the deep floor plates with natural light that penetrates far into the building.
