HYATT REGENCY ATLANTA
Renovations to the Hyatt Regency Atlanta Hotel hold true to the design intent of Florence Knoll and John Portman, the 1960’s American design icons and original designers of the atrium-style hotel. Focusing on strong linear elements, the contemporary take on the original design is mirrored by rectilinear lighting elements in the guestrooms, lounges, and elevator lobby. Attention is drawn to the architectural elements of the spaces by cleaver use of wall grazes and ceiling coves to accent the clean lines of the ceiling planes and wall details.
