Entry, Bar, Lounge and Restaurant Renovations
The design team transformed the guest experience of this Cambridge/MIT neighborhood Hotel into a connected and vibrant destination by reinventing the ground floor to feature an enlivened bar and lounge reflective of the hotel’s midcentury-modern brand and the innovative spirit of the neighborhood. With the nearby Charles River as the hub of inspiration, the entry, bar, and lounge flow seamlessly in alignment through an artful combination of rustic craftsmanship and modern sleek textures. The bar draws guests in with its reflective blue tones that gradually change from steel to ocean and celestial hues, while the lounge area located adjacent to the bar encourages creative minds to rejuvenate, gather, and create. The design brings local recreation and cultural influences alive as a gathering place to delight in discovery and new perspectives.
