Design Achievement - Marriott is bringing its luxury brand AC Hotel Spartanburg to South Carolina’s historic downtown area. DLR Group’s design of the interiors of this hotel offers a modern interpretation of the classic, high-style that has become a stable of this brand. This interior approach makes the property unique as the first AC Hotels by Marriott in the United States to embrace classic architecture styling and juxtapose the modern interior, as AC Hotels by Marriott are done in Europe. A main staple in the interior design is artwork from the Black Mountain Movement that took place in North Carolina at Black Mountain College from 1933 to 1957. The movement is described as avant-garde and uses a large variety of mediums. Although only lasting a very brief period, during a three year span teachers became artists that went on to create art you see in many museums worldwide. The collection going into the AC Hotel Spartanburg is museum-quality artwork and is closely connected to that region.
Scope Summary - The scope of this 106,500 SF hotel includes 11 floors with 114 rooms. It incorporates a rooftop bar and restaurant that overlook beautiful Spartanburg. DLR Group provided interior design services.
