Buffalo, New York
Delaware North, a global hospitality and food service company, is opening a Westin within their corporate headquarters office building. For this 116 room hotel, C+TC married elements of Westin’s brand philosophy of biophilia with elements of the national parks and resorts that Delaware North operates. By introducing colors, textures, patterns and natural materials into the design, we created at lodge-like environment in the middle of this resurgent northern city.
The 3,500 square foot Lobby features massive wood columns and beams that evoke Buffalo’s industrial past. A vertical garden will provide some greenery during the long Buffalo winters. And year-around, guests can have a meeting or lounge by the fireplace and look out onto the 6,000 square foot courtyard through double height window wall. The property also features a double height event space that is perfect for Delaware North’s annual meeting or a bride’s dream wedding. Health conscious guests will be able to exercise in the 2,100 square foot fitness center which overlooks the Buffalo skyline.
