Colorful History, Artistic Design Highlight Unique Starek Loft in Denver’s Volker Building

03/23/11 by Marketing Web

DENVER – It’s a one-of-a-kind home that reflects innovative design expertise in one of downtown Denver’s historic buildings.  The Starek Loft in the Volker Building was designed by Alice Starek and fellow members of the Rocky Mountain Architectural Artisans Guild, and it is now listed by Aimee Twarogowski of Kentwood City Properties. 

“You have never seen anything like this extraordinary loft,” said Twarogowski.  “It feels like something Gaudi would have designed.  You have to go to Barcelona to find anything comparable.  The owners have juxtaposed architecture with art to form an artisan masterpiece.  At times whimsical, at times sensual, this unique home is a functional work of art offering a great location.”

nullLocated in the Volker Building, built in 1907 by William Volker and Company, a manufacturer of venetian blinds, the Starek Loft is located across the street from the Pepsi Center and adjacent to all the attractions in LoDo.  You can walk to sporting events, the theater, restaurants, Larimer Square, the 16th Street Mall, and Union Station.  The owners will also enjoy fantastic views of the Rocky Mountains and LoDo.

Priced at $1,950,000, this exquisite loft offers two bedrooms, two baths, 2,319 finished square feet, and a one-car attached garage.  HOA dues include external building maintenance, insurance, snow removal, water and sewer, trash removal, and heating.  The interior appointments and finishes are truly unique, creating a living environment complimentary to the Colorado and downtown Denver lifestyle.

In 1992, the abandoned six-story heavy timber and brick warehouse was transformed into the 12-unit Volker Lofts.  The building, at 1628 14th Street, is located where Wazee Street crosses Cherry Creek and was one of the first three residential lofts in LoDo.  Volker’s small size and discrete, tucked-away entrance, paired with its original architecture, make it a truly unique living experience. 

Alice Starek, the designer, received her undergraduate degree in architecture from Princeton University in 1985.  Since then, she has been involved in the study of life.  Starek’s architecture reflects her desire to help people wake up and live their dreams...to create buildings which reflect their values on a personal, communal, and global level. 

Starek handpicked a group of artisans to bring her vision for the loft to form.  After working collaboratively on this extraordinary project for more than a year, these artisans created the Rocky Mountain Architectural Artisans Guild.
