After changing ownership, this hotel underwent a re-branding and was in need of an updated look. Randall-Paulson Architects was asked to develop a fresh appeal for the exterior and interior public spaces.
The addition of a two-story component with storefront glass at the entrance allows a grand feel to the reception spaces. Rich fall colors and a contemporary energy greet the guests. The flow is continued with staggered ceramic tile and a linear patterned carpet in a comfortable curve that lends movement throughout the lobby.
Upon entering the hotel, a custom guest reception desk is highlighted with a leaf green and a great curved wall made of glowing polycarbonate and metal paneling. The wall materials were chosen to bring outside elements into the space and also for economical reasons, saving money for the client.
To one side of the desk, a vestibule and seating area features a dramatic seating alcove and slate fireplace, both framed in dramatic paint colors which pop against the surrounding wall color. At the other end, a breakfast area welcomes guests with a built in bar in dark coffee bean laminate and frosted glass.
Throughout the project, attention was paid to choosing durable materials, crucial in these high-traffic spaces.
