Originally constructed in 1998, the W Seattle Hotel was in need of a comprehensive renovation to both update the building’s public facilities and reinforce the hotel’s distinct W brand. Skylab has developed in conjunction with Host Hotel, Starwood Hotels and W Seattle management a concept rooted in local history, technology, and culture.
This new vibrant mix of materials and space consists of an aerodynamic fireplace surround, modular totem-like wood columns, integral graphic elements, woven and braided rope screens, and central feature anchor lit bar.
Materiality ranges from the sleek - via smoked mirrors and polished stainless steel panels, to the soft - via custom fabrics, carpets, and draperies. A multitude of custom furniture pieces and light fixtures add detail throughout the spaces, and an abundance of built-in seating creates a sense of place.
