Hamilton Building Location

The Shop in the Hamilton Building, which opened in its current location in November 2009, features award-winning design by local Architectural firm Roth + Sheppard, with fixtures produced by High Country Millwork of Longmont, Colorado. The design melds perfectly with the lines of the Libeskind-designed Hamilton Building, validating the modern and contemporary merchandise assortment found within this Shop. The dominant design features are the LED lighted columns and lighted wall where we feature an assortment of manufactured and blown glass products by local and international artists in a variety of prices. The dramatic jewelry fixture showcases numerous talented local jewelry artists as well as internationally known jewelers; Somers, Vessel Amber, and Michael Michaud. Many of the unique designs are one of-a-kind.
