Russ Whitener Law Office Building
4110 Cutler Ave NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Project Description:

DWL•NM was commissioned by Russ Whitener to design an iconic Office Building along 1-40 that would make a “statement” and be recognized from the interstate so that it could be incorporated into his business marketing campaigns.

The design responded to the owner’s desire to present a strong visual impact to east and westbound traffic on Interstate 40. A strong color palette and prominent geometrical forms, similar to the vibrant colors and shapes, seen on many buildings in Mexico have helped to meet his stated goals. The design features abundant natural lighting within a two-story atrium lobby with space for common dining and a large palm tree planter. Private offices have windows to view the interstate traffic and open-offices have borrow-light and overhead diffuse lens skylights. The public and clients that see and use the building definitely agree that it has the “wow” factor that the owner stipulated from the beginning of design.

This multi-story private office building succeeded in providing energy efficient, flexible private and open office facilities. Assessment of current and projected office needs set the programming for the new building and its flexibility for leasing. Site development planning, assistance with marketing graphics for leasing purposes, zoning reviews, interior design, and 3-D architectural renderings and furniture system selections were all inherent components of conveying the design intent to the Owner and in making it a successful project.

Third and Central Commercial Building
301 Central Ave, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Project Description:

The One-Up Restaurant and Bar were the initial tenants in the Third & Central redevelopment project. The concept envisioned diners setting near the large windows that overlooked one of Albuquerque downtowns’ main street intersections and the street scene below. This downtown dining and entertainment venue were focused on an upscale, sophisticated atmosphere that was a departure from the early redevelopment projects in downtown Albuquerque which primarily included bars that catered to younger crowds. The redevelopment of these buildings has provided an alternative to some of the other commercial lease spaces available within the Albuquerque downtown area.
