Remodeling the core and shell of a historic downtown Denver building requires a practical viewpoint allied with an imaginative look at the possibilities for its future use.  The first floor of this two-story building houses the retail component of Scribbles, a boutique specializing in specialty invitations, cards, and gifts. 

The second floor is a live/work space with a spacious roof deck opening onto views of Downtown Denver’s skyline.  This historic structure starts a new life with modern dual purpose space while keeping the best of the old and the best of the new!
