West Elm Hotel, Indianapolis
In 2020, the former Art Deco Coca-Cola bottling factory is going to be transformed into a 12-acre urban hotel project set to revitalize downtown Indianapolis. Marked by Art Deco terra-cotta facades and industrial architecture, the contemporary boutique hotel also know as West Elm will also feature a private space for entertaining.
FieldHouse Jones, Chicago
The 1918 two-story dairy factory got the attention of hotel founders Michael Downing and Robert Baum that later transformed this industrial space into FieldHouse Jones, a 52-room boutique hotel in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. “There are so many elements with old factory buildings that are impossible to replicate, and that’s what makes them so special. It’s so much fun to bring a modern twist to these relics while still embracing the inherent oddities” (Robert Baum). The boutique hotel still features the factory’s original stone-engraved Borden sign and its original exposed bricks.
Eliza Jane Hotel, New Orleans
Located in New Orleans’s Central Business District the Eliza Jane Hotel opened in April 2018. The architects transformed the original seven historic warehouses from the 1850s, into an upscale hotel that showcases the original exposed brick walls.
Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, Washington, D.C.
Built in 1932, the former Georgetown incinerator closed in the 1970s… After being abandoned for 30 years, the Ritz-Carlton management decided to turn the property into a luxury hotel in 2003. The boutique hotel in Washington, D.C. maintains its trademark 130-foot smokestack and the original red brick and iron windows in the lobby.
Hauser & Wirth, Los Angeles
An 1896 industrial space in Downtown Los Angeles gave “birth” to the incredible Hauser & Wirth art gallery which opened in 2016. The factory that served as a conduit for wheat from the Central Valley of California for the flour that was shipped by rail across the country, is now the creative showcasing space for the developing arts district in Downtown L.A. “The practical industrial purpose for which it was first made provided an ideal armature for a multi-space gallery with both public and private functions. Opening up the courtyard and space to its earlier incarnation brought the life of the community through the building in the same way the trains had passed through in its original incarnation”, explains the LA founding partner, Paul Schimmel.
