Provide a brand-led space that increases transparency and connectivity while capturing the energetic beer culture.
RNL worked with Molson Coors on many planning scenarios and test-fit options for their existing 2 offices (Golden, CO and downtown Denver). Ultimately, Molson Coors decided to consolidate their existing offices to a new central downtown headquarters on 3 floors at 1801 California. This move allowed for Molson Coors to streamline their real estate cost by lowering their rentable square footage by over 13,000 SF, while getting everyone under one roof and increasing amenity and conference spaces.
A major goal for the new space was to provide a brand-led space that increased transparency and connectivity while capturing the energetic beer culture. The main reception was strategically placed in the middle of the 3 floors, with an adjacent 3-story open staircase. A custom branding wall cascades down the 3 floors and at the top and bottom of the staircase are open coffee bars with plenty of space and seating for impromptu meetings. The reception is completely open to a pub space – the heart of the business. The pub features magnificent mountain views, a variety of seating with custom locally made tables, and a copper clad bar with lit bottle rack above to feature all the Molson Coors brands. The pub space holds over 200 employees for all-staff meetings/events, and the board room opens to the pub with a glass operable wall to allow for additional seating. Bold and color-rich graphic wallcoverings throughout showcase Molson Coors culture, their brands, and the brewing ingredients and process, to provide energy to the brand-led space. A major shift from their existing offices was going from large perimeter lined offices to glass-front internal offices with workstations along the windows. This change allowed for a greater density and much needed transparency and energy. Workstation desks have sit-to-stand adjustability and 54” high panel.
