In contrast to the historic building, the design inserts modern elements creating space by drawing off the location of the northern window. The design uses this window to showcase the natural light revealing the space in different ways throughout the day and over the course of the changing seasons. This natural light also helps define the space in the entry and museum store. Making a connection to Colorado and addressing issues of sustainability, the new design uses salvaged and recycled materials when appropriate.
