Extra Space Storage Aurora
Located adjacent to the I-225 off-ramp at Iliff Ave, the site for this new storage facility has a challenging shape and access, including an abandoned parking garage that was originally designed to be the lower levels of an office tower. After exploring the idea of re-using the old garage, the economics of the project drove the decision to remove it. Studio DH collaborated with Kiwi II (a metal building company that specializes in storage facilities) to create a self-storage building consisting of 3 stories with a walk-out basement. Responding to concerns of neighbors, Studio DH Architecture designed an attractive building which appears to be more of an office building than a storage building. The East elevation which faces I-225 uses an abundance of glass to highlight the use as a storage building.
