Economist is a 97-unit apartment community designed with smart, highly efficient living spaces averaging 320 square feet complemented by unique amenities that unify two buildings as one cohesive structure. Inspired by minimalist living, the design thoughtfully maximizes every inch of space for optimal storage and daily use resulting in a spacious and comfortable floorplan in each unit. The common areas throughout the buildings allow for connectivity without sacrificing privacy for an exceptionally high standard of living.
The buildings take cues from the materiality and playful applications of color found in the surrounding historic homes in the neighborhood. The walkable separation between features an immersive 13,000 square foot mural created by a local artist making it an intimate yet vibrant corridor.
The Economist celebrates Denver’s evolution into a denser, more urban metropolis with a clear correlation to the dynamic area where it’s sited. It does more than offer housing, it represents a different way of life, an attainable one that cherishes the experiences beyond the walls of one’s home as much as those within.
