DISTINCT DESIGN WITH DIVERSE FUNCTION
The purpose of the Urban Box project was to create unique, flexible incubator spaces for small businesses. Each business has their own identity, signage, parking, and private space for sale and lease.
There are 10 commercial condo units ranging from 1,300 SF to 4,000 SF. The project sold out before completion.
Entasis Group was the architect, builder, and developer of the project. Entasis was able to dictate every step of the design, quality, and costs of the project using the “architect-led developer” concept.
Entasis also occupies one of the units as its own office.
The site is an infill project. The units have minimal finishes such as polished concrete, exposed mechanical ducts, exposed concrete, glass, and steel. The costs are affordable, allowing every business to participate. Entasis Group coordinated with local craftsmen and artists to achieve unique architectural details and maintain superior quality architecture. The project was also mentioned as a ‘top project” at the Mayor’s Institute on City Design (MICD) in California. The condo units are fully open in the front and back, with sliding glass doors to allow natural ventilation and plenty of light. This creates an indoor-outdoor work lifestyle, opening up the space to the beautiful Colorado landscape. Interior glass partitions also expand and contract, providing flexible uses within each unit. The project is attached to a green belt, giving tenants the freedom to ride bikes or walk to the office. The units use 75% less energy than a typical office condo.
The project has attracted users from all professions and backgrounds, ranging from lawyers to hipster digital graphic companies. Using premier modern raw materials such as raw concrete, metal, glass, and marble creates a distinct one-of-a-kind modern enclave.
