Without a doubt the strangest and most challenging space I have ever photographed. I had seen this unit when it was under construction and after it was finished, in 1995. It is a 2 story penthouse in the Peaks Hotel in Telluride's Mountain Village. The best way to describe it is hippy/Moorish/Tibetan with a very strange, creepy carpet. The place was set up the way they wanted it. The ceiling was designed with fiber optic lights that emulated the night sky on some southern hemisphere island. I had seen it way back when and it was spectacular. Problem was it did not work now. Nor did the stream and waterfall along the entry stair. So all of the uplighting and fiber optics were inoperable, so i made the best of it. Most of the lighting that functioned was some downlights on the back and front stone wall, 4 floor lamps and the candle chandelier, which cast some glowing which I liked. The windows are about 5' off the ground, so you have to sit down to see the view of 14,000' Mt. Wilson. Then clouds and smoke from a fire in southern Colorado moved in and spoiled the show.
The unit is in the upper right corner:
