"After working at Ewers Architecture I have continued on to work at several different types of firms, big and small, in the U.S. and overseas, for-profit and not-for-profit. At none of these offices was I able to find the amount of care and attention that Peter gives to his clients, his employees and his work. I feel extremely lucky to have started my career working with and learning from such a talented architect and great guy."

~ Michael Heublein, Registered Architect, LEED AP BD+C
(Ewers Architecture employee 2005-09, 2011)

After working for small and large firms in many parts of the country, Peter Ewers founded Ewers Architecture in 1998 with the mission of "Creating beautiful architecture that respects our natural environment." After two years of working out of Peter's house Ewers Architecture moved to our current location in a renovated 2-room schoolhouse in downtown Golden, about three blocks from Peter's home. Our office space demonstrates several aspects of our philosophies and what we deem important:
NO WALLS. NO SECRETS. Our office space is open with no walls. We have no secrets in our office, between staff or wtih our clients, so when we hold a meeting at our conference table everyone in the office knows about the project.
WE ARE A SMALL FIRM. Our space is small, with only five desks. We never anticipate outgrowing this space. We are not interested in creating a large firm, but instead want to remain a family-sized firm where we service our clients in a personal way.
TRANSPORTATION. The office is within walking distance of Peter's home, minimizing need for a car (and that car is a Prius).
BEAUTY. The space is beautiful, offering an inspiring place to work and create other objects of beauty.

VISIT US

The map at the right of this page should get you to our office, as long as you can find Golden. We have found that Google Maps, Apple Maps and Mapquest all do an adequate job as well. Or here are some good old fashioned driving directions:

FROM THE SOUTH...Follow highway C470 west (but you are actually traveling north) past I-70 to the end of C470 where it intersects highway US-6. Take US-6 west to the light at 19th Street. Turn right and continue several blocks down the hill to Washington Avenue. Turn left on Washington and travel 4 1/2 blocks. We are on the left between 14th and 15th Streets.

FROM THE WEST...Take highway I-70 east to the C470 exit, take C470 west toward Golden, around a circular on-ramp, C470 ends in less than a mile, and merges with westbound US-6. Take US-6 west to the light at 19th Street. Turn right and continue several blocks down the hill to Washington Avenue. Turn left on Washington and travel 4 1/2 blocks. We are on the left between 14th and 15th Streets.

FROM THE EAST (I-70)...Follow I-70 west to highway 58. Take 58 west to the Washington Avenue exit in downtown Golden. Turn left at the light at the end of the ramp. Travel south on Washington Avenue through the historic shopping district and under the "Welcome to Golden" sign. We are on the right between 14th and 15th Streets, just as you start up the hill at the end of the shopping district.

FROM THE EAST (US-6)...Follow highway US-6 west under I-70 where you begin to encounter stop lights. Continue on to the light at 19th Street and turn right. Travel several blocks down the hill to Washington Avenue. Turn left on Washington and travel 4 1/2 blocks. We are on the left between 14th and 15th Streets.

FROM THE NORTH...Travel highway 93 south from Boulder or Arvada toward Golden. Turn left at the second stop light (Washington Street). This becomes Washington Avenue. Continue on Washington, going south through the historic shopping district and under the "Welcome to Golden" sign. We are on the right between 14th and 15th Streets, just as you start up the hill at the end of the shopping district.


PARK YOUR CAR

Seems like a simple thing, to park your car, but when you are in a town filled with tourists and college students it can be a challenge. We try to make it simple for you:
FIRST CHOICE...park in the alley right behind our office where we have three dedicated spots (we try to always leave at least one open for visitors). The alley is only accessed from 15th Street.
SECOND CHOICE...park on the street on Washington Avenue or on 15th Street to the east of Washington. There are no restrictions in these areas.
THIRD CHOICE...park on 15th Street in the first 1/2 block west of Washington. A pass is required to park there, so come into our office, grab one of our passes and place it on your dashboard.
LAST CHOICE...parking further down 15th Street toward the Colorado School of Mines campus will earn you a ticket. Bring the ticket to us and we'll be happy to pay it.
