The exterior façade and lobby of the InterContinental Miami has been renovated to create an “electric” guest experience. Accomplished through new lighting, branding and technology, the hotel draws inspiration from the Miami club scene and art district. A 19-story digital canvas of LED lights creates a larger-than-life video display on the tower while a 550 square foot hi-res display welcomes guest as they enter the porte cochere. The porte cochere has been wrapped with over 6,000 LED nodes set behind an opaque layer of new glazing, creating a dynamic entrance sequence for the guest.
The transformed lobby utilizes colors, textures and technology to engage the guest by allowing them to interact with the building. A field of color changing, back-lit glass ‘Pods’ create seating clusters that focus around interactive touchscreen surfaces while highlighting the existing world’s largest Henry Moore sculpture. LED monitors continue the animated exterior theme throughout the lobby, reception and elevator lobby. These monitors display artful media, including a library populated by guest photos.
The entire project is orchestrated by a central control system. The interior and exterior elements interact as one color changing, media displaying show, making the guest experience unforgettable.
