Holland, Michigan, USA
Patricia Urquiola has designed a 48-bedroom hotel in the city of Holland in Michigan. The Haworth Hotel is housed within a multi-level brick building in downtown Holland, a small city along Lake Macatawa.
The hotel sits within the campus of the private school Hope College.
The project was delivered in collaboration with global furniture company Haworth, which started its life in the small lakeside city of Holland in the 1940s.
Urquiola comprehensively transformed and reimagined a former inn and conference center on the campus of Hope College in the city’s downtown.
Haworth Hotel is designed as a hospitality resource for the Haworth global community as well as travelers and visitors of the neighboring Hope College.
This transformational project remodeled all-conference and hotel rooms rebuilt the lobby and created a full-service coffee shop open to students and the public.
The hospitality setting provides the ideal venue for a welcoming design that draws the comforts of home into a professional space.
There are touchdown workspaces, as well as social spaces throughout the lobby.
The building continues to serve as a conference center for the campus, community, and organizations from around the country, with meeting and banquet facilities totaling more than 10,000 square feet and 13 conference rooms that can accommodate groups of up to 400.
The hotel lobby features a grand spiral staircase connecting the first two floors of the building. Flexible common lounge areas, designed to foster relaxation and wellbeing, include furniture from Cassina, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau, and JANUS et Cie.
Meanwhile, across the hotel, lighting has been created by Pablo Designs, rugs by GAN, textiles by Kvadrat, and bathroom fixtures by Kohler.
The hotel balances warmth, playfulness, sophistication, and multiple brand experiences in an environment that will encourage interaction between college staff and students, community members, and others.
