About

Independent boutique luxury hotel in Denver’s Cherry Creek North neighborhood. The project includes two street-level upscale restaurants, a rooftop pool deck with food and beverage service and a below-grade, speakeasy-style bar, along with two levels of sub-grade valet parking.

JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE is the architect of record and interior designer, working with exterior design architect gkkworks, and interior designers AvroKo and Skylab.

Design

This project optimizes the usable space within a tight urban context and its planning and zoning constraints to provide a unique yet contextual building, worthy of the Cherry Creek neighborhood’s luxury and quality. Conceived as “a wealthy friend’s urban loft,” it provides a refuge for guests in the bustling retail and dining surroundings, and convenient proximity to downtown Denver. Quality materials and subtle massing are worthy expressions of its luxury aspirations.
