Saam served as Architect of Record for this 14-story boutique hotel, consisting of 156 guest rooms, provides South Boston lodging with a rooftop bar, pool, private function room, and terrace on the third floor. Amenities also include a film screening room and conference room, restaurant, retail, and parking.
At all scales, the Broadway Hotel is a gesture to the craft and industry of South Boston. From the iron spot brick and white glazed tile forming the façade to the smallest custom furniture pieces in the guestrooms, the contextual concept is consistent. Thoughtful, specific spaces, elegant contemporary detailing and purposeful found objects will provide a memorable experience for guests.
Saam was hired to complete the project based on schematic design by VJAA. Scope entailed the detailed development of architecture and interior design including material selection, finishes, furniture, and fixtures. Saam also led the BIM and VDC process in a highly collaborative qualifications-based Design Assist environment with subconsultants, construction manager, and subcontractors.
