Ingalls Historic Building Interior Architecture

Interior Architecture- Large Scale (>5,000 sf)

Project Narrative

The original 1st floor had a trivial lobby space that the design team opened to the street with the large windows and tall ceilings. In doing this, media pods were created, allowing guests to sit down, watch their show, work, and collaborate with respective visitors. We highlighted the ceilings historic components with a bold sea dive blue for the paint selection. This choice of color serves as a surprise and guests immediately notice the color, followed by the dramatic details of the original historic building. We blended conventional with modern and the bold combination created clean lines and heavy detailing throughout the space. Due to the limitations created by the existing concrete columns, the design team produced a variety of room styles to work with, creating modern, yet a-typical room variations. The guestrooms were painted similarly with dark blue for a dash of drama and correlating colors. The 2nd floor delivers a variety of work and play space that allows guests to gather with friends or sit solo while working. The 15th floor has exciting suites overlooking the Cincinnati city, making a terrific spot to enjoy 4th of July fireworks.
