Highlands Farmers Market
Competition, Honorable Mention
This is our submittal to a design competition for a year-round farmer’s market in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. Sponsored by Sprocket Design/Build, the task was to design a flexible farmer’s market for a narrow, urban site in the Highlands neighborhood, west of downtown. Rather than limit the site to a seasonal market, we proposed a porous building that can house the market, but also be available year-round for art classes and community events.
With the generous graphic design and branding contribution of Susan Everett, our project became The Highlands Hub and included a ground level open market hall with retractable garage doors, a pair of toilet rooms, elevator office and a large, open community events room.
