CALGARY — Hotel Arts has completed a major renovation of 28 Studio guestrooms — giving its basic-room category a design and functionality upgrade.
This renovation completes the transition to a consistent style throughout all rooms of the property, highlighting bright decor, enhanced functionality and artful touches throughout. The hotel partnered with Chil Interior Design and Calgary-based DIRTT Environmental Solution to create a contemporary, art-focused design and practical room layout.
Hotel Arts’ Studio-Room renovation is the first hospitality project utilizing DIRTT’s modular-construction model, which will have a significant impact on the rooms with wall paneling that provides a cleaner, fresh feel and boast long-term environmental benefits such as reduced construction waste.
“DIRTT provides a faster, cleaner and quieter building method, making it less intrusive for hotel guests during renovations,” says DIRTT founder, Mogens Smed. “The custom aspect of DIRTT’s modular construction meant the Hotel Arts’ designer could match the company’s brand to create a space for guests to relax and feel at home while on the road.”
The newly unveiled Sudio Rooms feature king-sized beds with signature headboards, accessible power and USB ports, dimmable lighting, blackout blinds, in-room safes and ample storage. The bathroom features a rain shower and toilet enclosed in a glass cube with a bold art-overlay designed by Farmboy. The vanity and pedestal sink is flanked by custom millwork with a full-length wardrobe with mirror, bench seating and work desk. New windows were also installed — brightening the rooms and reducing exterior noise.
“Hotel Arts is continually innovating the look and feel of our property to align with the evolving tastes of our guests that are seeking new conveniences and unique accommodations,” says Mark Wilson, general manager of Hotel Arts Group. “Our collaboration with Chil Interior Design and DIRTT Solutions allows us to leverage our artful aesthetic while maintaining the functionalities of our spaces.”
