The team of Dallas-based 5G Studio Collaborative has announced the completion of its work as design architect and interior architect of Dallas’ new Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel at Young and Lamar Streets.
5G won the project from Matthews Southwest, the City of Dallas and Omni Hotels. 5G's principal designer Hoang Dang led a team of designers that included 5G principal Hidajat Tjahjono.
The “boomerang” form for the building, from 5G Studio Collaborative co-founder and principal Scott Lowe, is said to have won the team the assignment. The shape of the Omni Dallas Hotel has been described as “an emblem of the movement and dynamic of hospitality – inviting, welcoming and returning time and time again. Even though the building is still, it is always in motion in a conversation of energy exchange with everyone who connects with it. The architecture suggests motion to and triggers excitement in people who come into or are in close urban proximity to the building,” according to a prepared statement from the company.
The interior architecture of the new property feature the lower four levels of the hotel, which make up the “podium” of the building that has 80,000 square feet of meeting spaces, including a Grand Ballroom and a Junior Ballroom; and the upper 19 levels that make up the tower, which contains the hotel’s 1,001 guest rooms and Presidential Suites.
The interior is also the setting for more than 6,000 works of art on display from a total collection of 20,000 pieces of original artwork. Each piece is a custom commission from the local artist community of Dallas.
The interior architectural lighting is also said to add to the “experience” of the building, with the lighting fixtures integrated into the design of the ceiling, wall, and floor planes. All lighting designs are environmentally sustainable.
