The Children’s Museum of Denver had outgrown its footprint and was looking to enlarge the museum campus. The expansion took place in two phases; Phase I included the creation of a new outdoor learning space, and Phase II encompassed an addition and renovation of the existing facility. The museum staff looked for a team that could imagine and create, collaborate among disciplines, and most importantly, protect its precious occupants during construction.
FP’s scope of work included a new 160 space parking lot, a two story addition on the south end of the existing building, and a three story addition off the east end of the building. The outdoor adventure park required extensive landscaping, a boulder field, rustic gabion walls, custom water features, zip lines, mining ruins, caves, sand dunes, a 3.5 story climbing tower, and a camp ruins playground.
True to the Colorado vernacular, the Children’s Museum of Denver now offers a seamless indoor-to-outdoor experience that teaches children the power and majesty of the natural world. The transformed museum earned a position in the Top 10 of America’s Best Children’s Museums by the Early Childhood Education Zone.
