CCS and MODE Interior Designs win HC&G Bath Design Award

The 2015 Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards – Bath Design

Even though the owner and designer of this Water Mill bath, Mode SB’s principal, is married with young children, she wanted the room to have a masculine tone, while also being luxurious and discreet. The most compelling detail, and one that every judge made note of, is the hovering double vanity, illuminated from below. While acknowledging the bathroom’s “masculine appeal,” judge Kim Seybert enthuses that “a woman would still feel comfortable using it!”

Madrona Residence featured in Luxe Interiors + Design

CCS recently completed this new single family residence in Seattle, Washington, which is featured in the January 2014 issue of Luxe Interiors + Design.

This house was designed as a second home for a Bay Area couple as a summer retreat to spend the warm summer months away from the fog in San Francisco. Built on a steep slope and a narrow lot, this 4000 square foot home is spread over 3 floors, with the master, guest and kids bedroom on the ground floor, and living spaces on the upper floor to take advantage of the views. The main living level includes a large kitchen, dining, and living space, connected to two home offices by way of a bridge that extends across the double height entry. This bridge area acts as a gallery of light, allowing filtered light through the skylights above and down to the entry on the ground level.  All living space takes advantage of grand views of Lake Washington and the city skyline beyond. Two large sliding glass doors open up completely, allowing the living and dining space to extend to the deck outside. On the first floor, in addition to the guest room, a “kids room” welcomes visiting nieces and nephews with bunk beds and their own bathroom. The basement level contains storage, mechanical and a 2 car garage.

Hyatt Atlanta wins Best Restaurant Award

Hyatt Regency Atlanta

CCS Architecture is pleased to announce that The Hyatt Regency Atlanta was awarded Best Restaurant Design at the HA+D Awards Ceremony (Hotel Architecture + Design) in Hong Kong.

This restaurant, lobby bar, and cafe are located in the mid-century (1967) Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, which was the first hotel with a signature atrium, designed by John Portman. In the spirit of the mid-century legacy of the building, the design for all three of these venues is modern, clean and intended to be timeless, while also being unique and warm.

Prominent and near the hotel entry is Sway (southern way), which is a large all-day restaurant, designed with an exhibition kitchen, plus a wine bar.  The original restaurant, which was gutted, was just an extension of the lobby and had no positive identity.  The new architecture that we created now has a façade, which are the wooden sections that establish a border between the atrium lobby and the restaurant itself.  This creates a transition from lobby to dining that is still visually open and inviting.

 

The lobby bar for the hotel is called Twenty Two Storys, which is how many floors the atrium has from floor to ceilingThe design for this is distinctive from the lobby, yet fully open to foster as much flow into it as possible. Although the design is modern, the goal for this venue was to be a ‘modern tavern’.  The wood finishes are darker and the layout is casual to foster individuals and large groups.
