2020 brought closure to some big projects for the COLLAB team. Here’s a brief overview of some of our biggest projects in both the commercial and residential fields.
This 64 unit development is bringing a fresh face to Greeley Colorado at an economical price. The development will be a combination of a variety of different floorplans and layouts with 2 and 3 bedroom options. Each plan is flooded with natural light and combined with open floorplans to provide a true desired home experience. The exterior was designed with a simple material palette and strives to bring a sense of community with connected front patios, and great walkability to nearby amenities.
This 65,000 SF phase II design was completed in early fall for TPC Colorado. Collab provided the interior design for the building from stud framing to finish product. The scope of work included Member Men’s and Women’s locker rooms (including the associated lounges), (2) different restaurants, Wine room (Including member wine storage), Library, Banquet Hall, and a Grand hall lounge and bar. The interior design brought a timeless and unique design to set the clubhouse apart from their competitors, and still complement the natural beauty and view of the course.
St. Cloud Office Building:
The 10,500 SF ground up building broke ground in late 2020, and will be going vertical in early 2021. The Office Building is located in the heart of the exploding Crossroads Corridor. The design of the building takes the traditional office complex design from the nearby buildings and adds a twist with a modern material palette.
Collab embarked on an addition and remodel to bring a classic Mediterranean style home, and add a timeless, modern touch. We added an additional 1,200 SF addition to the home, extending the kitchen to a more open layout with a private mud room, pantry, and laundry room. Collab also completely gutted the staircase that separated the whole house, and added a floating staircase on a single riser surrounded by a transparent wine wall. To finish the transformation, the exterior windows were replaced with an enlarged, more modern style of windows.
We are looking forward to an exciting 2021, and look forward to working with you!
