OZ Architecture: designing from within the coolest neighborhood in the country

To those of us who live here, it’s no surprise that Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood has emerged as one of the coolest spots in the Mile High City. Now, the secret is out. Thanks to the scouts at Lonely Planet and Food & Wine magazine, RiNo made the “Coolest Neighborhoods in America Right Now” list thanks to its up-and-coming eateries, creative craft breweries, hip boutiques and abundance of diversions for the

Among them stands OZ Architecture, with our deeply rooted corporate headquarters occupying two former factory spaces in RiNo and countless projects in our own backyard.  We’ve helped our clients to design creative collaboration spaces, restaurants, bars and offices, mixed-use buildings, the Bindery on Blake and Industry, as well as forthcoming projects including the highly-anticipated World Trade Center and the revitalized Gold Star building.

One of OZ Architecture’s latest design projects in RiNo is bar helix, included in Eater’s recent dining heat map calling out the hottest new restaurants in Denver. The brainchild of owner/sommelier Kendra Anderson, the intimate bar bubbles over with seductive style elements such as raw cement floors and beams tagged in pink graffiti, mirrored surfaces, richly textured furnishings and a sparkling backlit bar.

OZ Architecture continues to be a voice for RiNo’s ongoing growth, and is dedicated to keeping its “punk-rock roots” intact.
