The Roosevelt Hotel in Seattle has been rebranded as the Hotel Theodore. The historic, 20-story downtown property will unveil an ethos inspired by the city’s long heritage of makers, builders, and doers with materials that compose a refined, handmade aesthetic complementary of the original building’s Art Deco style.
Locally based architecture firm Cushing Terrell partnered with fellow Seattle practice Susan Marinello Interiors and Los Angeles-based David Hill Design on the transformation. Renovations impacted the façade as well as the lobby, coffee shop, two-story atrium, and meeting rooms. Faux skylights will be installed to mimic natural light levels throughout the interior.
The project has also yielded the new restaurant, Rider, which pays homage to local industry with an open fish counter. Rider will also be anchored by an open-air grill that provides a multisensory dining experience.
