Studio Gang envisions a tree-inspired mixed-use project to add to Denver's skyline

Inspired by the area's natural landscapes and environment, Studio Gang reveals the latest visuals for their most recent mix-used project Populus.

Located in Denver, along the city’s historic Civic Center Park, the project pulls reference from the aspen tree by using its highly recognizable “eye-shaped” marked bark to design its facade, distinct building color, and vertical scalloped exterior.

The 13 stories tall building will house forty micro-apartments as well as 250 hotel rooms. Studio Gang collaborated with Denver-based developer Urban Villages. With the aspen tree as its visual muse, it’s hard not to see the resemblance. According to the studio, the project’s name “Populus” was also pulled from the scientific classification of the aspen tree populus tremuloides.
