ai3's design for Hotel Indigo Nashville coming along

The "neighborhood story," which influences ai3's design for the Hotel Indigo in downtown Nashville, is focused on Printer's Alley, the historical district located just outside the hotel's lobby windows.  The original building owner wanted to build his bank (the original building use) on the corner of Printer's Alley because of it's historical significance.

Had Nashville not become Music City, it could very well have been the printing capital of the world, with the majority of major publishers and newspapers located on Printer's Alley.  Printing machines and block-printing were a huge inspiration for our design team, as was Printer's Alley in the 1800s when it became a speakeasy "Men's District" for a mix of local businessmen and politicians.

Take a look at our progress! (Design renderings on left and construction photos on right)
