Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects

We are a 60+ person Colorado-based firm that specializes in integrated urban infill mixed-use projects. We’ve worked successfully in a variety of different project types from small scale office and restaurant interiors, to arts and athletic education buildings, boutique hotels, platinum rated office buildings, luxury residential communities, and large-scale urban planning efforts. No matter the size, use or type, almost all our projects have complex programs and unique constraints that create innovative solutions. 

Our team is passionate about helping great cities and communities grow appropriately and sustainably. Paying attention to the way places get built, the way they respond to their surrounding context, and how the spaces in between the buildings inform the user and pedestrian experience allows us to put this passion into practice. We’ve been fortunate to be a leading voice on a number of large planning projects that are playing an important role in the future of Denver – The River Mile, Stadium District, Sun Valley EcoDistrict, and 9th & Colorado, to name a few. We’re also actively working on updating the University of Denver’s Campus Framework Plan, and we’re helping a neighboring mountain community re-envision their town as a mixed-use destination that attracts visitors all year round.

We function as a studio environment that exemplifies our attitude towards collaboration - we are all in this together. We believe that drawing is thinking and that communicating well, through models, drawings, and words, is paramount to creating successful projects. Above all, we are a firm that is founded on working hard, being in it together, and having fun along the way. If you enjoy this type of working environment, we would love to meet you! Our office is across from Denver’s Union Station in the Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhood.
