The Aspen Meadows Resort is looking forward to breaking ground on the renovation of the Reception Center building starting August 2017. View the gallery for renderings and images.
Spearheaded by The Aspen Institute, and in partnership with Jeffrey Berkus Architects and Shaw Construction, the renovation of the historic Reception Center will incorporate a modern design aesthetic while preserving the key elements of the 1955 architectural work of renowned Bauhaus artist and architect Herbert Bayer and local Aspen architect Fritz Benedict. While honoring Herbert Bayer's masterful design, Jeffrey Berkus Architects has envisioned a Reception Center for the future.
Notably, the renovation will include the construction of a brand new Pavilion built atop what is currently Merrill Patio. The elegantly designed Pavilion will expand the restaurant space while also providing an all-weather venue for events that will accommodate 100 additional guests. An outdoor deck will be added along the side of what is currently Meadows Restaurant, allowing for expanded outside seating and dining. Moderators Bridge will be an additional outdoor entrance leading directly to the deck on the upper level of the Reception Center.
With the renovation of, and addition to, the Reception Center comes even more incredible views of Castle and Maroon Valleys, ideal for those looking to host events with a beautiful mountain backdrop.
