Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, recently announced construction is complete on the new headquarters of TruStile in Denver. Ware Malcomb provided architecture, interior design, and civil engineering services for the project.
Founded in 1995, TruStile is an industry leader and innovator in interior doors. The company’s new 310,000 square foot headquarters is comprised of approximately 50,000 square feet of office space and 260,000 square feet of manufacturing/production space with a large outdoor amenity deck. Every door throughout the facility showcases a different model designed and manufactured by TruStile, creating a walking showroom of the brand.
Like the company’s products, the overall design blends modern technology with old world craftsmanship. Utilizing a modern mountain aesthetic, the space includes an expansive reception and lounge area with a steam fireplace, client-facing conference and training rooms, open office areas, private offices, collaborative areas and huddle rooms, a fitness center, and a large café with an exterior patio. To reflect the company’s target residential market, the space incorporates furniture, lamps, and accessories such as books and houseplants to give it a more residential feel.
Access to natural light was also a top priority for TruStile. The design team ensured the layout of the open office areas and primary amenity areas were located near windows as much as possible. By incorporating windows in the training room and at various points in the office, architects and designers touring the space can also get an inside look at the 260,000 square foot production area.
The project was designed to be environmentally friendly and features a two-story mechanical building located on the north side of the facility, which houses a bio-mass boiler. The bio-mass boiler converts sawdust that is produced through the manufacturing process into energy used for heating/cooling the facility.
“TruStile previously operated out of 4 buildings in north Denver. This new headquarters brings all of TruStile’s operations together under one roof, doubling their square footage and giving them plenty of room for future growth,” said Matt Chaiken, principal of Ware Malcomb’s Denver Office.
