HOST HOTELS & RESORTS AWARDS AND NOMINATES TWO AXIS/GFA DESIGNED HOTELS FOR PROJECT OF THE YEAR
Earlier in November 2017, AXIS/GFA Principal Architect Rory Carroll attended the Host Hotels & Resorts AGM and Stakeholder Engagement Meeting in McLean, Virginia. At the event, AXIS/GFA’s Axiom Hotel project won Host Hotels & Resorts Renovation Transformation of the Year award. The project required the transformation of the original 2-star hotel’s 155 guest rooms into a four star lifestyle boutique hotel serving both business and leisure travelers. The LEED Silver certified and award-winning hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco boasts interior design by New York firm Stonehill Taylor. Project management by JLL.
No less of an accomplishment, AXIS/GFA’s Hyatt Regency SFO project was nominated for a Host Hotels & Resorts Project of the Year award. AXIS/GFA thanks and acknowledges EDG and HBA for their amazing interior design expertise on this massive 790 guest room/120,000 square foot public space hotel renovation project. Project management once again by JLL.
