PSS receives Mayor's Design Award

2009 Mayor's Design Awards Announced
Pattern Shop Studio
wins a Mayor's Design Award

Home is Where the Art is 

November 12, 2009 — Mayor John Hickenlooper celebrated the growing number of Denver’s homeowners, small business owners and developers who have made design excellence a priority in their community.  “Great cities are just as enriched by many small and beautiful design interventions as they are by large and bold civic gestures,” said Mayor Hickenlooper.

“No matter how large or small the project, design matters. We all benefit when owners go the extra mile to invest time, money and creativity into their property, creating a culture of quality design and encouraging others to follow suit.  These honorees are diverse examples of how attention to design details makes Denver a special place to live, work and play,” said Mayor Hickenlooper.

“The Mayor’s Design Awards recognizes and encourages well designed small projects throughout our neighborhoods,” said Denver Planning Manager Peter J. Park, AICP. “Good design happens on its own when enlightened owners recognize the benefit and invest in quality design.  Their design efforts make our city interesting, provocative and memorable.”
Co-sponsoring the 2009 Mayor’s Design Awards were: AIA Denver, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, Colfax Events Center, 5280 Urban Homes, Steuben’s, Pasquini’s, Whole Foods and the Denver Community Planning and Development Department.
