Renaissance Gateway Atlanta
Designer: Rottet Studio
It’s a luxurious take on the layover—the Renaissance Atlanta Airport Gateway Hotel.
The three-year project is a compelling mix of Southern history, diverse culture, symbolic artwork, and luxe touches to welcome weary travelers. Principal and celebrated interior architect Lauren Rottet says: “It’s about letting a place have its own voice, something you can’t find anywhere else.”
From lobby to reception to every guest room, Rottet’s design starts with simplicity and symbolism. To reinforce the point of view in tactile, comfortable touches, designer David Davis chose resilient Cortina leathers—hand-antiqued Old English in Camel on benches, and Rustico leather in Cannella on the lobby’s banquettes. These high-traffic areas require resilience, and each leather was chosen to withstand the demands while giving business travelers an unexpected touch of luxury along the way.
