Krause+Sawyer helps design Wyndham Garden prototype

Nine prototypical properties are already in development in the U.S., with the first property opening in mid-2017.

The Wyndham Garden brand is scheduled to roll out its first global hotel prototype with an emphasis on efficiency and the reinforcement of nature. Nine prototypical properties are already in development in the U.S., with the first property opening in mid-2017 in Bridgeport, W.Va.

The seven-story design was created in collaboration with New York-based Krause+Sawyer. A wooden trellis porte-cochère and a living wall made from moss and weathered wood that extends inside will bring the outdoors into the interior with splashes of green and natural light. The open-concept lobby, Plaza Square, will be brightened with dappled lighting and garden-inspired artwork. The brand’s lounge, the Green, will have a fireplace, greenery and new furniture. The Fountain will double as a workspace during the day, and a full-service bar.

The prototype will have 139 guestrooms with abundant sunlight, subway tiles, lighting accents, wood-like vinyl flooring and natural tones. Other elements will include open closets, mobile table and an enlarged dressing area.
