"We're excited to have STUDIOS Architecture leading our design team in Broomfield," said Michael Mueller, president, NYLO Hotels. "This is a dynamic and innovative firm that truly understands the multi-layered concept of The Loft - the heartbeat of the NYLO brand."

The design of The Loft draws inspiration from the unique context of Colorado STUDIOS is known for its bold designs that reflect their clients, and the Broomfield NYLO is no exception. The firm's design for NYLO Interlocken presents a fresh, modern perspective of the West, while merging it with design cues from the energized urban SoHo loft style common to the NYLO brand.
Typical to NYLO properties, the Loft will feature a full-service
restaurant/bar, state-of-the-art business center, high-tech gym, game room and boutique shop. The Loft in each hotel has a unique design that reflects its locale.

"Whether a guest is lounging by the fireplace, conducting a business meeting in the conference room or enjoying dinner in The Loft's restaurant, the functionality of the space is as important as its aesthetic design," said Greg Keffer, principal of STUDIOS Architecture. "Our goal in designing The Loft is to create an environment that will be inviting to guests, appealing to the eye, and practical all at the same time."
