The Astor House

Adaptive Reuse of a Hotel and Historic Museum to an Art Gallery, opening Spring 2024

Foothills Art Center is expanding their galleries and arts programming into the historic Astor House in downtown Golden, Colorado. AB designed a complementary addition to include essential accessibility and code upgrades alongside new art galleries, which connect with the reimagined yard. The historic portion of the building will be rehabilitated to stabilize the delicate structure and create flexible spaces for community galleries, a childrens’ hands-on gallery, and special events. Careful design ensures compliance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation.
