Congratulations to Colorado Village Collaborative and the Beloved Community!

May 20, 2019

Consilium Design congratulates our client, the Colorado Village Collaborative (CVC) on its approval to move the Beloved Community Village to the Globeville neighborhood in Denver. We are proud to be a small part in helping CVC design the new site and create opportunities within the site for the residents to grow their own food and enjoy functional and beautiful landscape.

Barnabas Kane, Senior Landscape Architect at Consilium said, “This is a wonderful community and we are very happy to be a partner with CVC. By contributing our skills as land planners and landscape architects, we hope to create a strong sense of place for the residents.  As requested by the villagers, by using landscaped borders instead of fencing, Beloved and its new Globeville neighbors will be more open for engagement with one another.”

With only two weeks to spare on moving from their old location, on Monday, April 29, Denver City Council unanimously approved the relocation of the Beloved Community Village to a city-owned plot of land in Globeville at 4400 Pearl Street.  The move is currently in progress.

Per the CVC website, “The Colorado Village Collaborative exists to initiate and invest in the development of resident-led villages. We embody radical solutions to homelessness: housing that centers human dignity, empowerment of marginalized voices, and design solutions that are affordable, sustainable and community oriented.”

This coming Thursday, CVC will announce a fundraising drive to help with creating a new community building and 8 new houses, here is the link to give towards this campaign:
