Designed by the renowned Brooklyn-based Crème Architecture and Design, the Hyatt Centric Center City hotel is nothing short of a masterpiece. The design takes inspiration from the region’s industrial roots and its rich craft traditions. It offers an upscale experience that blends sophisticated simplicity with a muted palette and plenty of raw wood accents for an elevated rustic look.
Preciosa Lighting worked with Créme to craft many industrial-inspired fixtures throughout the property in both guest and public spaces. We added an eclectic mix of light fixtures to the dining areas. First were four pendants featuring a blackened satin copper finish and hand-blown glass for the bar area. Next, restaurant guests dine beneath pendants featuring milky white spheres accompanied by matching table lamps. To complete the look, a long linear pendant, more than two metres, adds another bright spark to the space.
In the lobby on the second floor, Preciosa’s installation consisting of 15 intricately-shaped and suspended black wire baskets, glows with a gentle warmth. An inner lantern is placed within each basket, creating an inviting atmosphere and matching beautifully the golden wood-wrapped space.
In the private spaces, nearly 700 wall sconces manufactured by Preciosa adorn the corridors and guest rooms. Both designs feature industrial-inspired blackened copper finishes.
We are delighted to be part of the guest experience at the Hyatt Centric Center City, and hope everyone enjoys this extraordinary hotel during their visit to the magnificent city of Philadelphia.
