AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design was commissioned to oversee the $33 million architectural updating of this 530 room hotel. The project goal was two-fold: improve the guest experience, and increase the hotel’s appeal to groups. With both goals in mind, AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design worked to create brighter and more open spaces in the hotel, resulting in a hotel lobby that opens seamlessly into meeting and dining spaces which foster a communal atmosphere. The hotel’s architectural design also accommodates the trend hospitality which sees tourism being blended with business travel, and provides unique and locally inspired spaces that are suitable for meeting in or socializing in. With the hotel’s business in mind, AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design was able to imbue the hotel’s spaces with more flexibility, permitting a wider variety of events to be hosted at the hotel.
