Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch Remodel

The Ritz-Carlton was originally designed by Hill Glazier Architects as the centerpiece of Bachelor Gulch Village at Beaver Creek.  Designed in the historic tradition of the nation’s grand lodges, the building is home to the Bachelor Gulch Club and includes spa, retail, skier services, restaurant, and conference facilities.

The goal of the Ritz-Carlton Residential Conversion project was to create 50 new luxury residential suites to add to the variety of lodging offered at the hotel.  Zehren and Associates provided architecture design services to convert existing hotel rooms into kitchen/ living/ dining units and connecting these rooms to bedrooms on either side, to create one- and two-bedroom residential units.  On some floors the existing hotel layout necessitated creating studio units with kitchenettes at the entry area.  These new units were designed with “lock-off” bedrooms to maximize the flexibility and number of rentable keys.  The units are whole-ownership, with a set number of days for the owners, and are rented through the hotel’s central reservations and property management systems the remainder of the year.

Zehren and Associates was also the project architect for the “Spago” Restaurant within the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, which replaced the original restaurant designed for the hotel, and is currently working on the design of the new restaurant to replace Spago.
