APD building lauded for its architecture

The new Aspen Police Department, which was designed by Charles Cunniffe Architects, recently won an American Institute of Architects Academy of Architecture for Justice Award.

The station and adjacent housing complex also earned LEED Gold and WELL Building certification for their sustainable design features. The Justice Facilities Review program offers examples of a broad range of design strategies and depicts the latest trends in the design and construction of justice facilities in the United States, including the implementation of sustainable justice principles. Winning projects demonstrate quality of form, functionality and current architectural responses to complex justice design issues, according to a new release.
