Scope of Work

Lead Design Architect and Architect of Record, Entitlements, Interior Design

Tryba Architects was tasked with conceiving and designing the Origin Hotels, a new hospitality brand based on community, balance, experiences and wellness with each featuring location-specific amenities. Whether providing a launching point to experience Colorado’s nationally-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre or enjoy a bourbon tour through Kentucky’s scenic horse country, every detail of these hotels reflects and amplifies its specific context.

Origin Fritz Farm, Lexington, Kentucky

Terminating the central green of the Fritz Farm development, Origin Lexington defines southern hospitality. A combination of custom-formed masonry, contemporary metal detailing and classical proportioning assure Origin Hotel Fritz Farm is an architectural thoroughbred worthy of its prominent site. 

The 120-room boutique is the center of attention, complete with a food and beverage concept featuring a full service bar, open kitchen and functional bourbon still. Interiors of white woodwork with green leather and brass accents set a regionally-specific tone unique within the Origin collection.

Origin Red Rocks, Golden, Colorado

Origin Red Rocks, the debut location of the Origin Hotel Group, is the official accommodation at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the foothills of the Rockies. Adjacent to I-70 and less than 10 minutes from the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, this four-story, 124-room boutique draws concert goers and mountain adventurers alike.

Amenities include a full-service bar and restaurant coupled with an outdoor beer garden. The architecture draws inspiration from the surrounding geology, emulating the massing, striation and earth tones found in the immediate area. A local art program focused on nature and musical history rounds out the interior design.


Origin Westminster, Colorado

Origin Westminster will be the cornerstone of the downtown Westminster development. As one of the first buildings out of the ground in the city’s new downtown district, a diverse program is paired with proper urban architecture to establish a center of vitality within the community. 

The corner retail will be occupied by a 9,000 SF market, drawing residents from the surrounding area. The 125-room boutique hotel, the third of the Origin brand, will act as a hub for both tourists and business travelers conveniently located between the cities of Denver and Boulder.
