AC Hotel Grand Rapids Downtown
Built in 1890, the adaptive reuse of a historic pair of heavy timber structures transforms what was once a warehouse into a modern, art-centric destination hotel. The design for the AC Hotel Grand Rapids Downtown embraces the creative energy of its location, emphasizing the city’s strong art and design culture, and compliments the collection of hotels worldwide. The Grand River, which informs Grand Rapids’ urban landscape, also inspired DLR Group’s design details and concepts. An essential component of the hotel’s design is its intentionally curated art collection, which embodies the hotel concept by emphasizing geometric forms and the use of light and shadow. We provided architecture, interior design, and engineering services.
