This hotel conversion, a 52-suite mountain boutique hotel with a lobby, lounge, restaurant and den, was the first contemporary version of “mountain boutique” in the Alberta Rockies.

“We had three sources of design inspiration: The original 1950s architecture, the indigenous dwellings located on the site, and the client’s directive to appeal to a contemporary world traveller. We were also very focused on sustainability, consulting with Parks Canada and an archeologist, and reusing materials whenever possible. The original structure’s slate roofing tiles were made into room numbers, and reclaimed fir and pieces of wood that were repurposed used as furniture and detailing. As far as we know, the Juniper Hotel had the first green roof in the region.”
