St. Regis Atlanta Hotel + Suites
DDI was retained as Interior Designer for the iconic St. Regis Atlanta, located in the stylish Buckhead section of Atlanta. Deemed the crown jewel of luxury hotels in the area, the 5-star Marriott brand hotel underwent a total renovation of all guest rooms under the design direction of DDI. In addition to updating 151 luxury rooms and suites, the team also brought to life the event space and show kitchen, expected to host private parties or be a space for cooking lessons with celebrity chefs. As inspiration for the aesthetic direction, the design team drew on the area’s historical cinematic and artistic setting which emphasized a high society rooted in the exquisite and the progressive.
1801 Vine Street Hotel
The adaptive reuse restoration of the historic Family Court Building at 1801 Vine Street into a luxury hotel represents an exciting design opportunity within the cultural fabric of Philadelphia. The renovation will preserve, restore, renovate and adapt this wonderful WPA era historic building, complete with its 40,000 +/- square feet of historic interior courtrooms and grand public spaces. Working within the Secretary of Interior standards and guidelines for the preservation of historic buildings, the 220 guest room hotel will be a unique boutique hotel, renowned for the eclectic style.
DDI was engaged by PIDC, Philadelphia’s public-private development corporation, as the architect of record and interior designer of their new Center City headquarters. DDI provided building site analysis, test fit planning, design and construction administration for the new home of PIDC’s team of financial and real estate analysts, managers and executive leadership who is responsible for over $1.9 B in project financing dedicated to attracting and managing public and private investment in communities and markets that energize Philadelphia’s economy. For the 16,000 square foot facility, the primary planning concept was based on the all-glass front office and conference rooms in-bound of the exterior walls to allow for open office space with ample shared natural light.
JW Marriott Hotel
Daroff Design Inc. was commissioned to provide comprehensive interior architectural design for the J.W. Marriott facility built in Miami’s downtown business district on Brickell Ave. The facility is a first-class hotel with amenities appealing to the business traveler. The entry lobby is a grand space that is accentuated by an 18-foot high ceiling, marble floor, steps and baluster, bronze handrails and wood paneling. The feel of the main lobby is above all – “luxe”, with a residential scale and feel.
The Market at Comcast Technology Center
DDI has enjoyed its more than three-decade relationship working with Comcast providing planning and design services for each of their corporate headquarters facilities. It was only natural then that DDI was asked to be part of the design team for the new 1 million square foot Comcast Technology Center, joined with Foster Architects and Gensler. Daroff Design was responsible for planning and designing this stylish, informal employee experience encompassing 72,000 square feet on the 27th and 28th floors, to accommodate over 870 Comcast employees, consultants and visitors. The 27th features food service islands, offering a variety of freshly prepared food and artisan cuisines. The 28th floor is a gathering center around an expansive coffee bar and display cooking stations. The dining area has an array of seating options, including private conference rooms with multi-media technology.
