Way-finding and place-making is defined by the classic black and white oversized hexagonal tile that first welcomes you to the space, with a nod to Colorado Springs, CO, then guides you through the experience. Flexible gathering areas surround the circulation path; ranging from custom-built community tables, to cozy booths and solo “cubbies” under a canopy of vegetation. Walnut and concrete tiered seating, complete with pull out stump chair/tables, span from inside-out through a large, glazed overhead door, providing space for individuals to sprawl out on a slow day and promoting interaction during bustling hours.
A CNC milled walnut art piece adorns the wall and echoes the Loyal brand and mountainous backdrop of the city. All of this is pulled together through common brass accents, designed to patina and wear over time, added subtly through fixtures, floating shelf brackets, and trim pieces as a contrasting layer to a classic and timeless palette of materials.
