Denver Architect Firms Merge to Form Eight Track Architecture LLC

Three University of Colorado at Denver instructors have merged their own architecture firms to form a new company called Eight Track Architecture LLC. The new company, located at 910 16th St. in Denver, combines the existing architecture practices of Charles McBride, Matthew Shea's Void company and Ken Renaud of Box. McBride is a senior instructor at CU Denver, and Shea and Renaud are lecturers there. Eight Track's practice ranges from construction technique to "the idiosyncrasies ... of the city street," according to the firm. "The architect's responsibility to the city is not only to understand and work within its own particular constraints, but to simultaneously challenge its structure, its preconceptions," McBride said in a statement. The principals' past design work ranges from single-family homes and restaurants to master-planned projects. Those projects were worked in Boulder County, Colorado Springs and Southern California.
