R+B won the Aspen Historic Preservation Commission’s 2012 Annual Award for outstanding commitment to historic preservation with the Crandall Building renovation and restoration. R+B’s leadership throughout the public process helped the project team obtained Aspen’s first voluntary commercial post-war landmarked building from the City of Aspen. The project preserves the building’s original unique form and fenestration while adding a rooftop addition that complements the existing modern architectural vocabulary. While respecting the late artist and architect Thomas W. Benton, the remodel/addition of the Crandall Building brings this iconic 1970’s building up to 21st century standards. Significant upgrades to the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems maximized energy efficiency and sustainability. The most significant sustainability decision was not to demolish the original structure and redevelop entirely. See more here
