Industry: Hospitality    


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 throughout 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.
