HOMEWOOD SUITES LOUISVILLE DOWNTOWN HOTEL
FRCH took this opportunity to leverage the contrast, juxtaposing the hustle and bustle of the urban city with the tranquility of Kentucky’s rolling hills and horse farms. The design blends the influences of Louisville’s southern hospitality with natural elements, creating a light and airy atmosphere with an upscale living room experience, including an elevated patio space. With an interior rich in color and warmth, the hotel serves as an inspiring getaway that becomes a home away from home.
FRCH was careful to pay homage to the historical nature of the former Bartlett Building while offering new and sophisticated experiences for its hotel guests. FRCH employed painstaking efforts to restore the building’s historic ballroom and lobbies while revamping and replacing all of the buildings environmental and life safety systems. The completed Renaissance Hotel has 323 guestrooms, 10,000 SF of meeting space, a full service restaurant and bar along with required back of house functions.
HYATT REGENCY: LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY
The idea for Hyatt Louisville was to make common areas feel more like a home than a hotel. FRCH designed the lobby to resemble a downtown loft, using furniture, finishes and artwork that eliminates the traditional “corporate” feel of a hotel, replacing it with a calm and casual environment. Throughout the renovation, the team also sought inspiration from traditional Kentucky style, incorporating local artwork and products into the design. Local glassblowers crafted a stained-glass backdrop for the check-in area, with backlighting brightens the space, adding an elegant touch. This lobby was featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Hospitality Style, recognized for its innovation and creative touches.
