Boutique Design Events and Trade Fairs

Silverwest Hotels selected HOK for the renovation and interior design of the new Le Méridien Hotel in downtown Clayton, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis. HOK’s contemporary design creates a dramatic, intimate and curated retreat—both inside and out. To refresh the 17-story building’s exterior, HOK provided all new glazing work, façade updates, a new window system increasing natural light by 30 percent, and a new porte cochere, giving the building a sleek, modern feel.

For the interior, Le Méridien wanted to create a sophisticated space highlighting St. Louis and its roots as a French city. Upon entering the third-floor lobby, check-in desks echo French writing desks, accented by subtly arching standing lamps of blackened steel and polished brass. Art in the foyer uses organic shapes to create a map of the city of Clayton. The lobby also includes the Salon, a living room and informal business center for guests to gather, filled with midcentury modern furnishings along with dramatic and playful artwork.
