Miro is structural engineer of record for the exciting new 500-key Westin hotel and conference center at DIA. With a design inspired by the city, its surrounding natural environment and DIA’s iconic tents, the Westin Hotel is a swooping form in steel and glass. The hotel is located on top of the new Public Transit Center which was also designed by Miro.
The design objective for the hotel was to create an enticing destination for travelers with amenities that provide the 21st century passenger with what he or she is looking for in the travel experience. The hotel lobby will have a dynamic, urban feel, with views extending through the train station (departing and arriving trains will be visible) and on to the city and Rocky Mountains. The structural roof of the plaza canopy extends into the interior of the hotel lobby, becoming its ceiling. The project is currently under construction.
