Building on the success of the adjoining Source market hall, the Source Hotel continues the effort to activate a former low-rise industrial area into Denver’s River North Art District (RiNo).The building is planned with a variety of public spaces as the first priority. The two-story podium, connected by a bridge to the existing Source market hall, offers food and goods in a new market hall that overlooks a brewery.
Each of the five floors above the market hall holds twenty guest rooms, four of which are corner suites wrapping the ends of the parallelogram-shaped plan. Each room is designed to maximize views for the guests. Responding to the challenge of placing a tall building in a predominantly low-rise context, the building form utilizes shifting floors that appear as stacked single-story volumes emphasizing horizontality.The eighth floor is a public level with 360-degree views of the mountains and city skyline. Glazed overheaddoors open to a cantilevered terrace that holds a bar and restaurant, soaking pools, and outdoor fire pit.
