Led by Dawson Design Associates, with Nashville-based Gobbell Hays Partners serving as project architect, Union Station’s newly imagined spaces pay homage to the property’s history by weaving the building’s architecture with contemporary details. The property now has modern seating, original commissioned art inspired by Nashville’s music scene, and preserved barrel-vaulted stained glass ceiling. In the lobby, there are also large-scale steel sculptures made from re-purposed and recycled materials, as well as three 10-foot-tall, custom chandeliers.
Each of the hotel’s 125 guestrooms and suites were refurbished with walnut feature walls, cowhide headboards, custom iron and wire chandeliers, leather accents and contemporary amenities.
Union Station’s new bar and restaurant, Carter’s, has a two-sided marble bar and a private booth under a custom mural.
The event and meeting rooms were also re-imagined to create versatile spaces that have modern furnishings, new light fixtures and vistas of the downtown Nashville skyline.
Union Station is located at 1001 Broadway.
