VISION

The Highlights: Bamboo is a key
element to the design of this hotel
located in a " Bamboo Forest. " On
the top floor Sky Café, a Zen and
church-like space was constructed
via a full-height bamboo structure.
A skylight above allows natural
light to fall in the center of the
seating area during the day.
Adding to the light of the space is a
suspended circular LED structure
forming endless glowing moons.

THE L AST HOTEL
S T. L O U I S

The Highlights: Originally designed in 1909 by Theodore
Link, who was inspired by the Vienna Secession, the
building had incredible bones and ornate detailing
but suffered years of vacancy and disrepair. Early in
the design process, the team scoured the building,
recovering historical artifacts and pinpointing materials
to salvage in the redesign. Among them, a bronze fixture
which now hangs over the boardroom table, and a
bronze hippopotamus sculpture-rumored to be crafted
and gifted to the building by a sculptor from the City
Museum-that sits aside the rooftop pool.
Evoking the Vienna-era philosophy of embracing
various styles and honoring the craftsmen who used
" lasts " to mold leather into shoes, designers tapped local
artists to display rotating works. They also researched
classical-style furnishings and different tools of the
shoe trade, resulting in details like the stitching on
headboards, the shape of the desks that mimic a
cobbler's workbench, saddle leather strapping, and Josef
Hoffman-inspired geometric black and white textiles.

The Highlights: Inspiration embraces
the creative energy of its location,
emphasizing the city's strong
design culture. Grand Rapids, a
city sculpted and formed by the
strong Grand River, influenced the
hotel design concept " path of least
resistance. " Much the way billowing
smoke or flowing water moves
when it encounters an obstacle,
the squared geometry of the space
allows guests to move effortlessly
from one destination to another.
