The River North neighborhood in Denver, Colorado is among the fastest growing communities in the nation. The area, formerly an industrial hub, is home to some of the most forward thinking developments in the state combining groundbreaking architecture and next-generation sustainability. AMLI River North, a 388 unit property located on the eastern bank of the Platte River, partnered with Ad Light to develop a multifamily signage package that drew inspiration from the area’s character and molded for a modern luxury multifamily design.
The main entry monument incorporated the community’s logo of an abstract rhino and embellished the dimensionality with a 2 layer design, standing the first layer off by an inch to allow for golden illuminated on an outlined backer. For the graphics package, Ad Light embraced the existing graffiti and integrated it into the design by scanning the walls with a high definition camera and replicating the artwork on the new prints. ADA signage employed raw materials such as steel and bolts to convey the industrial theme throughout while maintaining ADA standard for tactile lettering and visibility.
Projects like these are a great example of how architectural signage can carry the history of the locality while catering to the next generation of the community.
