Expansion of the Bellevue Hyatt Regency hotel included renovation of the Bellevue Place Wintergarden, a gathering place and hub to the complex of hotel, restaurants, and office tower. A basalt clad and blackened steel water feature diffuses sound within the large atrium space, providing a tranquil edge to the elevated registration area of the hotel and focal point for adjacent quiet seating, meeting and circulation space. Groves of timber bamboo create a comfortable canopy to floor level activities while providing a vertical accent beneath the glazed dome ceiling.
