Red Lion Hotel in Tempe

This brand hotel is located in Tempe, Arizona. The design team renovated the lobby and breakfast area with references to the geographic location and history of the area. This renovation involved space planning and redesigning the front desk and breakfast areas and selection of wall finishes, flooring finishes, furnishings, lighting, and art/accessories. Local references were the four enormous photographs of the Western sky in the clerestory area of the lobby; custom designed shadow boxes including local artifacts and black and white photographs of nearby landmarks by local photographer.
