This month, JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE received a Mayor’s Design Award for our work on Woodie Fisher, part of the Hilton Garden Inn Denver Union Station. The extensive seven-year undertaking to rehabilitate the 130-year-old Hose House No. 1 building resulted in a timeless, contemporary restaurant in Denver’s Union Station neighborhood.
Constructed in 1881, the Denver Hose House No. 1 building has been standing for almost as long as Denver itself and is the only surviving structure from Denver’s historic “Bottoms” neighborhood. After decades of water and fire damage, it was in fragile condition when we began work on the project. Through extensive planning and dedication, we are proud that our team was able to preserve the landmark, transforming it for a new era while honoring its deep-rooted history as Denver’s first firehouse – with some delicious fire-inspired dishes too!
Recently, we enjoyed hosting a tour of the Hilton Garden Inn Denver Union Station for Denver Design Week and providing attendees with design insights from key areas of the project.
This year marks JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE’s fifth Mayor’s Design Award in the last seven years. We were honored for Block 32 RiNo in 2013, Halcyon Hotel in 2016, The Maven Hotel in 2017 and The Ramble Hotel last year.
Since 2005, the Mayor’s Design Awards have honored projects throughout the city for excellence in architecture, exterior design and placemaking. To see all the projects honored at the Mayor’s Design Awards, click here.
