CSO was commissioned by White Lodging Services to design a new, five-story hotel adjacent to the University of Notre Dame campus. Located within walking distance of the football stadium, the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites is a 119-key, custom designed hotel. The exterior building design incorporates brick and stone masonry to compliment nearby retail and commercial development. The interior design of the hotel, featuring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s blue and gold, celebrates the University’s long-standing traditions. The hotel amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool, two meeting/event rooms, business center, and dining area. In addition, the hotel has spacious, contemporary rooms and suites equipped with work desks and ergonomic chairs. Construction for the new hotel was completed two months early.
The Pure Development Headquarters project has been designed to provide this very dynamic, design-oriented development partner with office space that would be reflective of their very modern design philosophy and their highly collaborative business approach. Their new midtown Carmel, Indiana headquarters embraces a new, post-pandemic model for workplace design, which supports concentrative modes of work, interactive/social modes of work, and a variety of collaboration and meeting functions to be outfitted with state-of-the art IT & AV capabilities. The building’s architectural expression shall utilize a very distinctive and modern palette of warm, natural stone and wood finishes, brought together with steel and glass and very straightforward, thoughtful detailing. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2022.
