The Broadmoor ResortColorado Springs, Colorado
Working with the Broadmoor facilities management team, CSS developed stenciled designs that replicated the style of bas relief plaster elements which were peeling and cracking with age. The stencils feature trompe l’oeil vine motifs and acanthus leaf borders around the windows, replicating the folk-inspired fruit and figural elements from the original decoration.
The stained glass laylight in the West Building Main Lobby features an elaborate geometric and floral design executed in brilliant shades of gold and crimson. Paint was mixed with lavender oil to achieve a smooth, dramatic gradation. The laylight is centered above a crystal chandelier, and is lit from above to cast an elegant glow onto the lobby below.
After careful restoration, the Broadmoor Resort once again offers its guests the opportunity to experience timeless elegance and luxury at a one-of-a-kind historic property.
