maintaining a sense of place… five-star adaptive re-use by Nancy K. Bohnett A luxurious place to seduce, satisfy, romance the senses and create memories that last forever originated as 3,000 acres of corn grown for making brooms. In 1880, a Prussian Count, James Pourtales, established a small dairy farm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Not expecting a poor return on his investment, Count Pourtales bought the original 2.400acre tract in 1890 and formed the Broadmoor Land and Investment Company. Twenty years later, 440 acres were forced into receivership, and a man known as Spencer Penrose brought his mining wealth to the residents of Pikes Peak and a multi-faceted resort was born. Warren and Wetmore of New York shaped The Broadmoor’s architecture and design, creating a Renaissance-style main complex completed in 1917.

Galyean coordinated the talents of a multidisciplinary design team, including architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors and various skilled artisans, to successfully update the facilities and ensure guests return to this much-talkedabout property. Everyone on the team was challenged to integrate modern elements without masking any of the original beauty and integrity. The result only improves on the unique qualities original to the hotel, maintaining the character and magnificence of a grand residence but with the modern amenities today’s travelers demand. TAG Studios are specialists in Resort Master Design, and believe in treating all exceptional properties like living theater. They know that resorts in extraordinary settings allow visitors to experience things beyond their expectations, a true
