Location: Country Club Plaza, Kansas City, Missouri
Completing the high-profile Plaza Vista development, Hotel Sorella is Kansas City’s premiere hotel on the Country Club Plaza. DRAW played an integral role as a member of the design team on the interior fit-out for this seven story, 132 guestroom, four-star boutique hotel. DRAW worked together with Gould Evans Associates to complete the shell and enclosure of the project, and was then invited to extend their design work into the interior spaces with hospitality specialists Dawson Design Associates.
DRAW’s collaboration resulted in the conception of an innovative curtain wall and canopy that clearly defines the entry — creating a dramatic first impression while leading and inviting guests down the corridor for their stay. DRAW’s work focused on the public spaces including the lobby, meeting rooms and ball room, as well as Bar Rosso, a rooftop restaurant and bar. This high-quality output has led to the team’s inclusion on other collaborative endeavors as well.
