Hyatt Place is a 130 room, seven-story, 80,000 square foot hotel. Its contemporary design projects a twenty-first century identity, while transparency at the ground floor engages the vibrant street scene in Portland’s Old Port.
A multi-story faceted-glass corner contraposes the restraint of the building’s stone-panel siding.
The building envelope incorporates a high performance rain screen system and co-generation is provided by a roof mounted micro-turbine. Included in the lobby and bar are custom light fixtures designed in collaboration with two Maine artists.
As the modern alternative to stone, cement and slate, Petrarch panels give the impact needed to make designs stand out from the crowd. They bring individuality and style to a building while being extremely durable, low maintenance and highly resistant to impact. Petrarch panels passed the rigid requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 285 Fire Test Standard.
Manufactured by Omnis, Petrarch’s strength and lightweight features in both 5/16” (7mm) and 7/16” (10mm) thicknesses make it the ideal choice for unique façades. Choose from a variety of colors and finishes to customize your project.
