Our Brian Klipp is featured in Building Design + Construction’s annual comprehensive roundup of hospitality design trends, suggesting that “home away from home” is hoteliers’ newest theme. In the piece, Klipp weighs in on how hoteliers are making site and brand decisions. Specifically, he offers that “brand standards have morphed into ‘standards with an attitude.’” Check-in areas are becoming social environments full of energy and engaging sounds and smells. In some hotels incoming guests are greeted and ushered to their rooms by iPad-equipped staff. Workspaces are being designed as tech-enabled lounges.
The piece also highlights our work with the recently completed Jacquard Hotel, which is scheduled to open this September in Denver’s Cherry Creek North District. The hotel has a 9th floor rooftop with a 25-yard lap pool, spa, fire pits, bar, lounge areas, and dramatic views of downtown and the Rocky Mountains. The terrace is protected from inclement weather by a 10-foot-tall glass screen.
