MEMORABLE. HARMONIOUS. UNEXPECTED. Every landscape architecture firm will tell you they offer solutions, they provide sustainable design, they provide a sense of place. While it’s fair to say we do the same, it’s also true that we take it one step further. We look for the less obvious solution, the one that surprises, delights and draws every person who enters the space into an experience that touches all senses. It’s about design that interacts with the natural environment, the architecture, and the way in which light plays across the land. It’s vistas, small or large, at every turn, and a seamless merging of interior and exterior elements. At Forma Design Partners, there is no signature style, only a deep respect for our clients, their projects, and the culture, climate and resources of their site. We are committed to providing artistic, creative

outdoor spaces that linger in the minds of visitors long after they’ve left.

Situated just west of Downtown, the future home sites of 8 Single Family and 14 Multi-Family units provides unparalleled views of Downtown Denver to the East, Pike’s Peak to the South, and a newly redesigned Sloan’s Lake and the Front Range to the West. The proximity to Downtown for work and Sloan’s Lake and the Mountains for relaxation and recreation are uniquely Denver, however it is perhaps the vision and approach of the development that sets it apart. Instead of looking to maximize profit based on location alone, the development and design teams intend to offer a ‘community within a community’ that promotes the notion of neighborhood while strengthening the Sloan’s Lake community as a
