Since opening its doors in 2006, the Frederic C. Hamilton Building has become one of downtown Denver’s most recognizable landmarks, drawing thousands of visitors. The project, designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind and Davis Partnership, consists of a 146,000ft² addition to the existing Denver Art Museum, built originally in 1971, almost doubling its size.



Consisting of a separate building this major expansion tied to the existing museum through a 100ft long enclosed walkway. It hosts the main entrance to the museum complex, as well as a collection of Modern and contemporary art, a collection of Oceanic art and African Art, a theatre and a rooftop sculpture garden with views over the scenic Rocky Mountain range.

Cover(c)Royal Ontario Museum.jpg Located in Toronto, Canada, this Renaissance ROM project entails renovating ten new galleries in the existing historical building and creating an extension to the museum:  the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

The new extension provides dynamic new architecture, the creation of a great public attraction and 100,000 sq. ft. of new exhibition space.  Situated on one of the most prominent intersections in downtown Toronto, the Museum becomes a dynamic center for the city.  SDL is working on this project with Van Bolts.  The Extension opened in June 2007.
