We wanted to create a special pattern for the Elizabeth screen that was tailored to the individual site and nature of the project- To honor the history of the site and specifically the legacy of Auntie Elizabeth Stone we wanted the Screen to have a laciness; a feminine touch to interact with the strong masculine forms of the building.
We also wanted the pattern to speak to the specific site of the hotel- set between the decorated romantic Old Town District and the large scale steel-age infrastructure and tranquil pastoral moments along the Poudre river.
We created a veil that was composed of a repeating pattern that merged and lay somewhere in between a simple floral pattern and a simple pattern of boxes. We worked to make the supporting structure of the screen as integrated into the final design as much as possible.
