Whitney Landmark Lobby
A 15ft round custom wool rug was designed and made locally for this space. The rug theme is a wheat grain to represent the history of this building, which was once a flour mill on the river. When the mill closed the building became the Whitney Hotel where Hollywood stars would stay while in downtown Mpls. The hotel closed and in 2006 was converted to upper scale lofts. This seating group is located in the lobby just off of the main entrance. The turquoise Venetian plaster on the ceiling adds a pop of color which modernly represents the river waters.
-This project was completed while I was a Designer at Gabberts Design Studio where myself and two other Designers helped to make all the design selections and design details for the project. Photography by Jill Greer More images of this project can be found on my website; www.sarahbernardydesign.com
