Deborah Berke Partners’ Nashville 21C Museum Hotels Outpost Their Seventh

This outpost of the hotel chain boasts a double-height glass wall in its reception area giving a view of art in a ballroom below. In keeping with the museum-hotel hybrid concept of the 21C Museum Hotels, all of the hotel’s 138 guest rooms double as galleries. A glass ceiling poised directly beneath the second level skylights allows copious light ingress to a corridor connecting the lobby and a restaurant, in which corridor there is a high concentration of paintings and objects d’art. In a number of other ways is the economy of natural light played with intricately by our friends at Deborah Berke Partners, this being necessary given a lack of windows in the building’s party wall, including a series of lightwells, so that the hotel is thoroughly naturally lit, albeit primarily from above.
