The Spoke on Coffman
The design of the new four-story building with 75 units is an integral part of the City of Longmont’s Coffman Street redevelopment-improvement project.
The “Residence” portion of the building includes a centralized courtyard open to the weather, providing daylight to internally located dwelling units surrounding the courtyard perimeter and provides a gathering space including amenities for residence and private groups to enjoy.
The “Parking” a five-stories post tensioned concrete structure was designed as a series of trays along Coffman Street with integral decorative screens to enhance the structure’s appearance.
The structure of the building was designed to accommodate solar panels (PV) integrated into the vernacular of the architecture. The project was designed in compliance with HUD Guidelines for accessibility and Enterprise Green Communities for sustainability.
