DLR Group has completed the design of the lobby for Denver’s Curtis Hotel. Designers took the hotel’s brand and “Stay Happy” nostalgic mantra to create a space with naturistic materials, vibrant colors, and both vintage and modern design elements suggestive of each Colorado season.
Guests walk through a “campsite” and “pool area” (shown) and are invited to unwind in the Denver landscape. Inspired by rock climbing, the check-in desk has an area of brightly colored ropes and carabiners and a stylized rock face. Natural textures paying homage to the Red Rock Amphitheatre and freshly snowed mountaintops with vintage ski and snowboards create a nostalgic ski resort vibe, juxtaposed with the bright poolside hangout filled with kitschy flamingos and crochet games.
