Project Spotlight: Valley Hope of Parker

Gallun Snow and TreanorHL have had the pleasure of working with the amazing team at Valley Hope of Parker on their new building addition and existing building renovation. The project was an integrated team effort between the end users, architect, engineers, and interior designers.

Valley Hope of Parker, formed in 1989, is a residential addiction treatment and recovery center located in Parker, CO. With a desperate need for more space and a heart for helping those in need, we worked with the Valley Hope of Parker team to add 18,000 square feet of new building to their current location as well as renovation to 21,000 square feet of existing space. The new building adds a large community room, new dining, dorms, group rooms, and a new detox center including patient rooms, dayroom, nursing areas and a new dining area special to the detox suite. The new building also houses more offices, a new business admin area and a new welcoming entry lobby.

The building's design concept was to create a calm serene oasis that bridges the old and new buildings to add much needed space for more patients. The design has a contemporary and progressive lodge feel to make patients, visitors and staff feel welcome and at home. We incorporated light woods for warmth, colors found in nature such as rusts, greens, blues, and warm greys, vaulted ceilings, and dormers. The exterior design of the new building uses metal panel, siding, and two colors of brick to enhance the lodge look.

The new community room adorned with wood beams, a large two-story fireplace and natural lighting looks out onto a new deck for outdoor patient therapy and respite. The facility's new dining room has brightly colored wallcovering, unique lighting, and a wood look herringbone designed floor. Included in the existing renovation is the lecture hall, kitchen, corridors, group rooms, offices, and the business admin areas. The existing dorm rooms are being renovated to the design of the new dorms which includes wood look LVT, new paint, millwork, and new furniture. Since the existing building will be renovated with the new building's finishes, the overall design will feel new, fresh and cohesive.

When designing for this type of facility, safety and security are the utmost importance. All the rooms will be designed anti-ligature. The materials selected have minimal pattern and texture so not to create anxiety or stress, while the color palette is subdued to create a calming feel.


The building is tentatively scheduled to open in 2022/2023.
