The owner of this boutique hotel and bar in Colorado undertook a major renovation in 2020. In order to capitalize on the fabulous mountain views it was decided to construct a rooftop bar. The access to the roof deck needed to protect the stairwell from inclement weather while providing the desired look.

The operable over stationary roof access allows light into the stairwell and restaurant below when closed and low-profile access point when the rooftop bar is open, ensuring no patron’s view is blocked. The upscale experience is a draw for locals and a memorable treat for out-of-towners staying at the hotel.
