Status: Complete

The 2,815-seat, award-winning Buell Theatre was created within a former sports facility and it was the first implemented phase of the $31 million Denver Performing Arts Complex, whose master plan was created by Westlake Reed Leskosky. The complex unification of disparate structures and new construction resulted in what is now the country's second largest performing arts center. The design of the Buell Theatre reflects the character of the region, incorporating native Colorado sandstone as a finish material, drawing a tangible connection between the theatre and the nearby Rocky Mountains.
