Colorado Court far exceeds standard practice in energy-efficient housing design. This five-story, progressive housing development, designed and built almost a decade ago, remains a significant benchmark for sustainable design today. Brooks + Scarpa’s design sensibility created a simple and elegant project that remains fresh and relevant as we continue to advance renewable energy and socially conscious design. Colorado Court is a true prototype and catalyst for affordable housing. The architect’s approach was to integrate physical, economic, and social sustainability, combined with exceptional design.
