SAR+ was asked to help renovate one of the existing buildings located at 1050 9th street in Denver, CO on the Auraria Higher Education Center campus. The existing building is comprised of a historic single-family home which was built in 1876 with an addition constructed in the 1920’s. The building is a contributing structure in the locally designated ninth street historic park district.

The current use of 1050 9th street is for faculty offices on the Auraria Higher Education Center Campus.

The house will be renovated to fix safety concerns and to accommodate office space along with flexible areas for gathering and community engagement with the Latin and indigenous American communities and displaced Aurarians and their decedents. The primary restoration requires the repair of the existing front porch to allow for safe usage for tenants and visitors. The repair shall retain all existing character and aesthetic.
