NELSON works with hospitality clients to provide both the business and the leisure traveler with the functional and comfortable amenities they require and a place to serve as a base for guests away from home. Our creativity and technical expertise as hospitality designers come together in every space and structure we design. Our integrated services platform, which incorporates interiors, architecture, branding and consulting services, allows us to provide the precise combination required, facilitates a seamless integration and empowers us to deliver individualized yet turn-key solutions.
Our hospitality architecture and interior design is characterized by spaces and materials that reflect and enhance the relationship of the hotel and its unique place. Our projects range from limited service to luxury hotels. Covering the full spectrum of minor renovations and conversions to adaptive re-use and multi-million dollar new construction projects, all of our work demonstrates superlative design supported by careful planning and execution with the intention of adding lasting character and value.
We carefully select and assimilate materials that are not only aesthetically pleasing but reflect a sense of place. Our designs aspire to respect the essence and history of their surroundings and also bring innovation and uniqueness while maintaining existing or newly developed branding standards.
With an understanding of timeless design and emerging markets, we leverage industry expertise to deliver solutions in alignment with our client’s goals and aspirations. We continually challenge ourselves to find a balance between what is classic and what is new.
With the goal of maximizing value and ROI, we focus on the integration of new construction technologies and best practices.
We are committed to sustainable strategies for green hotel design whether a project is targeting LEED certification or just energy efficiency.
