Rose Andom Center

1330 Fox St.
Denver, CO

Type: Government

Owner: The Denver Justice Council

Architect: OZ Architecture

Project Summary

The Rose Andom Center is the Rocky Mountain region’s first wrap-around services center for victims of domestic violence, providing integrated support for survivors of partner violence and their families.

The City of Denver secured an office building at 1330 Fox Street to house the Center, in collaboration with the Denver Justice Council and the Mayor’s Office.  This 75,759 sq. ft., three-story, precast concrete building was selected because of its proximity to the Denver Justice Center and Police Department, and its easy access to mass transit and onsite parking.

OZ Architecture and Milender White planned and executed phased renovations, based on fundraising efforts, to transform the building into an attractive and environmentally-efficient facility. The scope of work entailed fully sprinkling this non-sprinkled building, replacement of the mechanical system, and upgrading the electrical system. A second contract with the City of Denver Department of Public Works included the replacement of all windows at three elevations.

The first floor includes a safe and welcoming reception area, 68 enclosed parking spaces and an electrical substation for the utility company. The second floor has a large training and conference area, plus eight leasable suites for other organizations with similar missions. The third floor houses  partner agencies assisting clients with questions, referrals, legal issues, advocacy and counseling for adults and children, non-acute medical care, job training and more. The facility also includes a comfortable gathering space with a kitchen and play area for children, interview and counseling rooms, a quiet area, and offices for staff.

The Rose Andom Center won an Eagle Award of Excellence as a Community and Public Service project from Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc. (ABC). Milender White also received an official Denver City Council Public Proclamation of “Milender White Day” from Mayor Michael B. Hancock for excellence in delivering a vital civic project. Mayor Hancock wrote to us that “establishing the Rose Andom Center was a central goal of my administration”.
