Overlooking Post Office Square’s Norman B. Leventhal Park, the hotel blends the legendary hospitality of the original Langham Grand Hotel with the classic architectural elegance of Boston’s former Federal Reserve Bank building, originally constructed in 1922.
CBT recently completed a master plan for the entire hotel and has recently completed design for Phase I which includes a updated lobby. The design for the 11,000 SF lobby transforms the Langham entry experience with the creation of multiple unique spacial experiences on the ground floor including a new concierge-focused entryway, four individual reception pods, and a world class champagne bar and lounge.
CBT’s design gives a nod to 1920s art deco and art nouveau through the use of metal finishes and period patterns implemented with contemporary finishes and furniture. The design creatively highlights the Langham brand throughout by keeping its traditional sophistication and balancing it with the introduction of modern allure. For example, the color palette of the ceiling features a reflective dark bronze that increases the height of the spaces while keeping with the warmth and tone of the Langham brand. The furniture selection introduces wing back chairs with unexpected fabrics.
CBT also designed two model bathrooms and provided plans to renovate 318 bathrooms throughout the hotel.
