Richmond Marriott Short Pump
Baskervill provided interior architecture and design services for this comprehensive guestroom and public space renovation at the Richmond Marriott Short Pump. Located in a bustling suburban office park, the design draws inspiration from the surrounding natural landscape and work/live/play lifestyle of the area. The existing lobby, restaurant, bar, reception and some back of house areas were demolished to make way for a new Marriott Great Room concept on the first floor. The space includes a day-to-night buffet and bar area, numerous small meeting and collaboration spaces, and an evening bar. A new, 24/7 M-Club Lounge for Marriott Rewards members will also offer food and drink options. The renovation also includes an expansion of the fitness area and three new meeting rooms, in addition to updated finishes and fixtures in the existing spaces. The aesthetic references rich tactile materials such as metal, concrete, and glass contrasted with modern sculptural elements. A neutral palette infused with the patina of mixed metals and wood and natural elements draws the eye to the clean lines of the architecture. Art from local Richmond-based artists is incorporated throughout.
