THE SIE WELCOME CENTER
The Sie Welcome Center will complement the Martin and Hamilton Buildings, completing the campus and expanding visitor services and access. Designed with a nod to Ponti, the 50,000-square-foot elliptical-shaped structure was designed by architecture partners Fentress Architects of Denver and Machado Silvetti of Boston. Saunders Construction of Denver served as the general contractor on the project.
On the main level, the Sie Welcome Center will feature ticketing, guest services will feature two new dining options for museum visitors. New art collection storage and conservation laboratory will be located on the lower level. Details on the Denver Art Museum’s new, quick-service café and full-service restaurant will be shared soon.
STURM GRAND PAVILION
The second level of the welcome center is the Sturm Grand Pavilion, which encompasses more than 10,000-square-feet of flexible event and programming space enclosed by 25-foot-tall floor to ceiling glass panels, engineered to provide structural integrity. During museum hours, the space will serve as Family Central, a flexible public space with hands-on activities. The Sturm Grand Pavilion also will be available for event rentals, along with several additional new event spaces in the Martin Building.
