Since this building is located in New York City's historic neighborhood of Tribeca, designers had to develop a plan that would meet the client's desire for a modern, clean setting while also meeting the requirements of the Landmark Preservation Committee.To do this, designers added an Ipe wood fence around the Diamond spa and bamboo trees to help keep the space private.
The historic, but slightly long-in-the-tooth Clermont Hotel situated on Atlanta's busy Ponce de Leon Avenue had seen better days. But it had a lot going for it including a very popular terrace level Clermont Lounge, a one-of-a-kind strip club where celebrities including Bill Murray, Woody Harrelson and Robert De Niro had stopped by when filming in town. The historic preservation experts at Oliver Hospitality, based in Nashville, have made revitalizing beautiful old buildings and smart design part of their mantra. Hotels and restaurants have all been resuscitated by the group, in cities from Atlanta to Nashville to Knoxville. Leaving the beloved local dive the Clermont Lounge intact, but re-doing the Clermont Hotel with an emphasis on retro style has transformed this space into a hipster locus.
Though constructed in 1843, this historic home on Beaufort's 511 Prince Street looks brand new thanks to impeccable preservation. Once they enter through the iron gate, visitors can take a seat on the bench and enjoy the view up close.
