Hilton Garden Inn
While with Kasian Architecture, Interior Design and Planning
Role: Principal-In-Charge of Design
The Hilton Garden Inn marks the beginning of redevelopment of The Quarters and is a key signature element to the southerly urban end of The Armature along 96th Street at Jasper Avenue. The Hilton Garden Inn contributes to the revitalization initiatives by reflecting the tenets outlined in the design guidelines for the Quarters generally and specifically for this area of the Armature. This 200 room executive business hotel maintains a sense of the urban grid through its predominantly rectilinear form yet acknowledges the significant streetscapes of 102 Avenue, 96th Street, and Jasper Avenue in the orchestrated articulation and expression of ‘events’ in the architectural facades facing these significant streets. The hotel project is a catalyst and flagship for like quality developer projects in this precinct.
