Hyatt Centric

Framing a new pedestrian-focused block in one of Nashville’s historic neighborhoods, this Hyatt Centric project translates the rich history of SoBro into the design concept for a boutique hospitality experience.

Sited within a historically haphazard urban grid, Hyatt Centric tackles a shift in the street grid and enhances the pedestrian experience with generous sidewalks, new hardscape and landscaping, and ground floor restaurant and retail space.

At the same time, Hyatt Centric celebrates the imperfect city grid with a facade pattern abstracted from the historic SoBro street grid. More fine grain detail in the facade composition refers to the production and composition of the music and maker scene which make SoBro a vibrant neighborhood. Guest rooms and above-grade parking cantilever fourteen-feet overhead shading the entire ground floor of the southern façade. Raised guest rooms sit above neighboring podiums to take best advantage of city views.

Clad in metal and perforated anodized aluminum panel, the materiality conveys a contemporary vocabulary to the city’s skyline. Ipe and copper panels accent the black and white composition introducing warmth and texture.
