INTERCONTINENTAL BUCKHEAD ATLANTA
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Atlanta-based InterContinental Hotel’s choice of tvsdesign to plan and design its flagship hotel acknowledges the firm’s experience in designing much of Atlanta’s significant built environment over the past three decades. An innovative philosophy that always reaches further was another factor, since the hotel is the model for InterContinental’s future brand definition.
A NEW DIRECTION FOR THE INTERCONTINENTAL BRAND
DESIGN GOALS, STRATEGY & RESULTS
The site, situated on a prominent bend along Peachtree Street in Atlanta’s upscale Buckhead district, affords dramatic views in an architecturally competitive corridor. With its iconic ‘Southern Art’ restaurant and cafe positioned at the front of the hotel, the design creates a pedestrian and urban street presence that is a hallmark of InterContinental. The overall design of the hotel is inspired by the concept of ‘contemporary classicism” that reflects a southern regional flair in the architecture and interior design. A surprise delight of the design is an enclosed outdoor courtyard garden, an urban oasis, which is surrounded by the public circulation and meeting space on the ground floor.
