Hilton Norfolk The Main
Baskervill provided interior design services to Cooper Carry Architects for the new Hilton Norfolk The Main hotel and conference center, including the property’s multi-story atrium, lobby and public spaces, and 300 guestrooms and suites. The property’s luxe Executive Level boasts a private lounge and elegant suite spaces. The 42,000-sf meeting space includes 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art IACC Conference Center certified classrooms, centers for leadership and tiered conference rooms. Also part of the space are junior and grand ballrooms – the grand ballroom can accommodate groups up to 1,500. A 12,000-sf rooftop garden and lounge provides additional gathering and celebration space. The goal of the design is to work seamlessly with the architecture, creating an organic geometry of overlapping linear forms to define spaces. In the atrium, use of stone and steel reference the locality and shipbuilding heritage, while warm woods soften the look. Alternating floor tiles create a sense of wayfinding. Terraces between levels are landscaped oases of privacy with plush seating creating a park-like feel. The second-level lobby reinforces the language of the atrium spaces with crisp metallic neutrals, sculptural accents, and textural influences, infused with rich, warm furniture and soft goods selections.
