Le Meridien


Minneapolis, Minnesota

This Midwestern boutique hotel was designed with the sophisticated traveler in mind.  Public areas emulate modern art galleries by featuring large, textural sculptures by local artists within an architectural stage.

The copper clad ground floor lobby announces to the traveler that they’ve entered a unique environment built to stimulate the senses.  Layered metal grills and custom –finished walls of plaster sandwich linear incandescent channels along the floor.  Simple rope light tucked into perimeter ceiling coves glow while the large woodblock sculpture, highlighted by a trio of MR16 accent lights, signals the elevator bank to the transfer lobby above.
