Two firms combine for Andaz’s first Scottsdale hotel

Involved in the property’s design are Delawie Architects and EDG Interior Architecture + Design.

The Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa, Andaz’s first hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz., is scheduled to open this November. Involved in the property’s design are San Diego-based Delawie Architects, which is infusing the resort’s Guest House with a midcentury modern design; and EDG Interior Architecture + Design, which is crafting the property’s 201 bungalow-style guestrooms. The property is spread across 23 acres of Arizona’s Paradise Valley.

The property will have floor-to-ceiling glass walls that will highlight the eatery, Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen, as well as lounge spaces. The exterior will have a large patio, while the social gathering space will evolve into a cocktail venue in the evening.

The guestrooms will have a combination of vibrant color, folk art and cultural patterns inspired by architect Alexander Girard and other mid-20th-century designers and artists. Ranging in size from 350 square feet to 500 square feet, guestrooms and suites will be clustered into four- to six-unit enclaves, most of which will have private outdoor patios. Individual guestrooms will have a front terrace with Spanish-style banco seating and picnic tables. Midcentury-inspired bathrooms will have grand showers and abundant natural light.
