Confluence Architecture acted as LEED consultant and HERS provider on a new home located in Missouri Heights above El Jebel Colorado, netting a LEED gold and a HERS rating of 18. We worked with a great team including building architect CCY, contractor Koru Ltd, mechanical engineer REG, and Jill Soffer Design.
Carbondale’s newest hotspot, the Marble Distilling Company, is now open for business. Confluence Architecture was there to participate in the First Friday festivities last week. The tasting room was transformed into a club like atmosphere for the grand opening as craft spirits were enjoyed by many of Carbondale’s population adding to the vibrancy of the space and helping to define what makes Carbondale such an attractive place to live and work.
Confluence Architecture is pleased to announce that construction has begun on a project located in Elk Springs subdivision in Glenwood Springs. Congratulations to Chris Shaw Construction and the Basler family for reaching this major milestone. Check back soon for more updates on this fine example of sustainable design in the Roaring Fork valley.
Check out this great video on Marble Distilling Company Facebook page about the work by craftsman on the distillery and tasting room. As architect on the project, along with Jeff at Energy and Sustainable Design, we cannot execute a building without these guys. Craftsman You Tube.
Marble Distilling Company is still under construction. Some wonderful finishes are starting to go in. Check out the marble slab bar set up for event for 5280 magazine. Look for an article this fall in 5280. Confluence is working with the building team to finalize all their IgCC material requirements. If you are building a commercial project in Carbondale, Basalt, or Snowmass Village, we can help with your IgCC requirements. See more here.
