2020 AIA Houston “On the Boards” Design Award Recipient
The Montrose Hotel is designed to offer a unique experience for Houston visitors within it's namesake's neighborhood. The developer, Goodnight Hospitality, is not new to the neighborhood. They have been curating alluring destinations that strengthen the diverse context of their locale starting with Goodnight Charlie’s in 2017, followed by three new restaurant concepts slated to open later this year. The hotel seeks to create a synergy among these projects and fill a missing link in the Houston landscape for small boutique hotels in walkable neighborhoods.
The building holds the front building setback with a lush landscaped wall and perforated brick screen that provides a softly glowing lantern along Dunlavy street in the evening. A small bar and lounge occupies the ground floor and opens onto a landscaped outdoor living space. The compact, three story hotel’s rooms orient towards the private courtyard space and a large green roof over covered parking.
