Duncan Pavilion is a second story addition to and renovation of the historical Morgan Wing of the Denver Art Museum acting as link between the Daniel Libeskind designed Hamilton Building and the existing Art Museum, including the famous Geo Ponti designed tower.
The project intent included preserving the integrity of the landmark Morgan Wing of the art Museum built in 1954, while providing a significant mechanical upgrade for the oldest part of the museum, the Morgan Wing.
The Duncan Pavilion is a second floor addition, open assembly area that receives the pedestrian bridge from the Hamilton Building with a new pedestrian elevator and monumental glass stair linking pedestrian traffic to the existing Signature Gallery on the first floor. The strongly day lighted space provides a sense of transition between the new and old buildings and a resting point. An upgraded extension of the existing freight elevator creates the final link in the system facilitating artwork traffic between the existing and new buildings so the artwork can be received and serviced in the Hamilton Building and transported to and from the Ponti building’s gallery without exiting the protective environment of the Museum.
The new rooftop patio provides panoramic city views of the City Capitol, Civic Center Park, Denver Library, Wellington Web and other buildings as well as the unique view of standing directly under the new Hamilton Building “prow” almost exactly as you exit the building onto the patio, creating a very dramatic effect.
