Hotel Union Square

San Francisco, CA

Life of Riley

"The Hotel Union Square project was a great challenge. The real goal was to create an aesthetic which wouldn't date itself in five years and would appeal to a broad spectrum of tastes. The high ceilings draw the eye upwards, and are visible from the street, so I wanted a signature branding idea for the ceiling. The Sculptured panels serve as art and light fixture, while cloaking unsightly mechanicals.

As a long time fan of Architectural Systems Inc., I knew I could count on them to deliver a variety of cost efficient and impactful solutions. The hotel owners sought to value engineer many alternatives with various contractors, and in the end Architectural Systems was the clear resolve."
