3. The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa

The property’s art collection and the existing architectural beauty inspired the high-end luxurious ambiance. While renovating, the functionality of the project was increased by creating intimate seating arrangements grouped around the structures’ floor to ceiling windows. The windows were kept bare to emphasize the view of the Harbour and the natural light filtering throughout the lobby.

6. Wyndham La Belle Maison Vacation Ownership

While maintaining the formal language of the neighborhood on the exterior of the building, the renovations and constructions on the interior emphasize the verticality which was present in the high-rise architecture of the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. The architectural and interior vocabulary of the spaces mimic the culture of the city. 

Also, a central atrium, interior parking, and multiple floors were added to the existing structure.

7. Four Points By Sheraton French Quarter

MRAID successfully faced the task of revamping the public areas and guest rooms harmoniously with the modern organic aspects of the brand and the building’s historic character. This was achieved by choosing classic-inspired furniture pieces upholstered in vibrant fabrics, upgrading existing traditional lighting with new shades, and changing the background colors to a simpler, monochromatic scheme.

MRAID provided full architecture and interior design, FF&E selections and specifications to this Buffet located in the center of the busy Harrah’s Casino. MRAID renovated this 1980’s Buffet to create a sense of place by adding a bar incorporating custom lighting, stone countertops, dark stained wood trim, antiqued mirrors, and mosaic tiling.

12. Sugar Factory At Miracle Mile Shops

Entering the shop through the movie marquee entry, the lights from the flashing Hollywood bulbs gives one the illusion of walking down a red carpet. To further enhance this experience, the walls are adorned with shiny metallic frames showcasing celebrities enjoying the candies bought at the store. To keep the focus of the customers on the candy, the walls, floor, and shelving are whitewashed, making the vivid colors of the candy pop.

This renovation project was for a young and hip family of three. Keeping their requirements in mind, the spaces were made flexible with a versatile character that could multitask as a relaxing abode and LSU football-watching party destination.
