The One Beale Hyatt Centric Hotel project is the combination of two structures: a new proposed Hotel building and the adjacent Historic Ellis Building. The Hotel project will consist of 227 rooms across six floors and will include a restaurant and bar, fitness center, and centralized courtyard and pool at street level. The pool area will include an elevated event lawn along with other amenities. The Hotel will also include a lounge and bar with an outdoor terrace located on the Hotel rooftop. The curved curtain wall recessed within the hotel perimeter, around the columns, will allow pedestrians to wind around the building under a covered porch, protected from the elements.
The conceptual thinking which drives the formal and material architectural qualities of the Hotel design correlate to the historical and cultural context of Beale Street in Memphis. Having integrated the Historic Ellis building into the project design, the brick context of this once booming industrial area suggests conceptually a fundamental structure supporting the contemporary Hotel box above, juxtaposing the old with the new.
