Sheraton Hotel Porte Cochere: What Would I.M. Pei Do?
At the top of Denver’s iconic 16th Street Mall, our vision for the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel renovation is quickly becoming a reality. With an emphasis on contextual design, we approached the renovation by asking ourselves, “what would I.M. Pei do?”
The renowned architect behind the original Sheraton Hotel design, I.M. Pei had an adoration for bold geometric patterns, clearly evident through some of his other major projects such as the iconic rattlesnake-patterned pavers along the 16thStreet Mall. Our design pays homage to Pei’s design philosophy and impeccable use of geometry perhaps most powerfully through the distinct porte cochere.
HGI Union Station Wins a Downtown Denver Award!
This month, JNS was honored at the Downtown Denver Awards for our work on the Hilton Garden Inn Denver Union Station and Woodie Fisher restaurant.
The 233-key hotel brings needed upscale, yet affordable hotel accommodations to Central Platte Valley, with 10,000 square feet of meeting space and a main ballroom with 18-foot-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The hotel’s exterior design incorporates authentic materials comprised of stucco and metal panel accents. Inside, the industrial chic lobby features earth tones and wooden floors, leading to the hotel’s defining all-glass curtain wall, giving guests sweeping city skyline and mountain views.
