USING COLUMNS AS ROOM SEPARATORS

Open floor plans create a spacious, airy feeling that appeals to many of today’s homeowners.  However, without traditional borders, the living rooms, kitchens, and dining rooms often bleed into one another, resulting in an undefined sprawl.  A beautiful and effective solution to this problem is the incorporation of well-placed architectural columns.  Correctly used, columns delineate the rooms without disrupting the original architectural intentions.

In this home, fluted columns with Greek Erectheum capitals have been used to separate the living room (unseen), a center hall, and the dining room, providing a more contemporary living arrangement in a traditional setting.

On this Martha Stewart project, a wall was removed, and fluted columns with denticulated Roman Doric capitals and Attic (Ionic) bases were added to expand the space.

Chadsworth Provides Columns for Restaurant 1858 at the Broadmoor Seven Falls in Colorado Springs

Chadsworth Provides Columns for Restaurant 1858 at the Broadmoor Seven Falls in Colorado Springs

Feast of the Seven Falls

When Seven Falls (2850 S. Cheyenne Canyon Road, sevenfalls.com) reopens Aug. 13, it will mark just under two years since flooding closed the attraction, but also the first time that a business, rather than a family entity, has owned the canyon splendor.

Last year, the Broadmoor purchased Seven Falls from the Hill family, who owned it for nearly seven decades. El Paso County assessor info shows that purchase price at $956,000, and Broadmoor spokespeople say its owner, The Anschutz Corporation, has put around another $11 million into restoration and upgrades including a new gift shop, a food cart, two extensive zip-line courses and an eatery called Restaurant 1858.

Executive sous chef David Patterson says the menu’s point of departure resides in the restaurant’s name. “We’re looking at the Colorado Gold Rush, the West and what food traditions people may have brought,” he says, noting both American regional flavors and immigrant influence. Items range from game meats to Colorado trout, which are served eight ways, from “cast iron classic” to “prohibition style” or “low country.”

Katie Symons arrived four months ago via Las Vegas to take the job as 1858’s chef de cuisine, formerly having worked for Nobu inside Caesar’s Palace, and West Virginia’s historic Greenbrier resort hotel, among other postings. She and Patterson both talk up a 4-by-3-foot wood-burning grill that’ll receive oak, hickory and mesquite feedings, and which greatly informed the menu’s design.

“That grill is like a beast,” she says, “I worked on one in Vegas … It adds smoky flavor to all the food.”

Arkansas Valley Organic Growers and former Broadmoor executive chef Sigi Eisenberger’s farm are among area food providers.

“Talking about heritage isn’t just a buzzword for us,” says Patterson, who adds, “If I put shrimp and grits on the menu, I want it to be the real deal. I buy the best grits I can, and source Gulf shrimp when we can.”

He also cites AVOG-grown Anasazi beans that appear on a chopped salad, and South Carolina’s organic Anson Mills’ red peas and gold rice that lend authenticity to the Hoppin’ John on the side of 1858’s roasted chicken.

Regarding the facility, Symons notes chandeliers, wood features and a stunning view of the waterfall from the 100-seat dining area and 20-seat patio. Patterson likens it to the opulence and “rustic wilderness beauty” on display at the hotel’s swank Cloud Camp, conceived by the same design firm, Johnson David Interiors. “It looks like it’s been here 100 years,” he adds.

No on-site parking is allowed; free shuttles leave from the hotel’s east lot. Dress is casual to relaxed, and you can arrive early or stay post-meal to hike and visit the park, as access to 1858 requires a park-entrance fee: $14/adults; $8 ages 2-12; season and family passes available). Regarding menu pricing, Patterson says “we want to be price sensitive and as inclusive as possible, but we won’t compromise on our quality and product — we’re a Broadmoor property, and the expectation from a guest perspective is for 5-star, 5-diamond quality.”
