Inspirato Member Lounge
BALANCING COMFORT AND LUXURY APPEAL IN AN UPSCALE SKI LOUNGE
Elsy Studios’ design for Inspirato’s flagship member lounge in the resort town of Vail, Colorado, took inspiration from New York social clubs, but with a more relaxed Après ski sensibility.
The majority of the tenant space was designed for member relaxation and socialization, while discreetly incorporating practical features such as ski boot storage, a home theatre, boarding pass printing and vacation planning areas. Mixed metals, reflective surfaces and rustic elements combined to create a comfortably refined design thoruhgout the space.
Despite the tight timeline, the design and construction team completed the project on time – even with a number of one-of-a-kind elements. Large custom banquettes make a bold statement and provide relief and texture to the wall plane, drawing new and potential members in. Custom walnut tables serve as a practical architectural element, defining the boundaries of seating areas and continuing onto the ceiling to support glowing damask pendant lights – all while providing an easy spot to rest your drink after a day on the slopes.
