CMMI Receives ASID Georgia Chapter 2009 Design Excellence Award for The Regent Hotel & Guerlain Spa, Bal Harbour, Florida

May 19, 2009

ATLANTA and MIAMI, May 19 /PRNewswire/ — The newly completed Regent Bal Harbour Hotel in Florida was recently recognized with the prestigious American Society of Interior Design (ASID) Georgia Chapter 2009 Design Excellence Award. The interiors throughout the hotel and its signature Guerlain Spa are the work and inspiration of Atlanta based design firm, CMMI. The ASID Design Excellence Award recognizes: innovation, design solution, creative and functional use of space, scale and proportion, relationship of materials, textures, patterns and color composition, as well as effective use of lighting.

The Regent Bal Harbour is an elegant oceanfront hotel located on the tip of Bal Harbour Village. The hotel features 124 guestrooms and executive suites, as well as the signature Guerlain Spa, conference and banquet space, a signature restaurant, a bar and lounge, and a spectacular European-edged outdoor swimming pool.

“In developing the interior design for The Regent Bal Harbour, we considered several design aspects including the hotel’s beachfront location and water views, ensuring that the public spaces and sitting areas were oriented toward those views,” said Jeffrey Beindorf, Allied ASID, Principal. “Our goal was to create a striking yet comfortable environment that exceeds guest expectations and emulates the sophistication of a Regent Hotel,” added Beindorf.

Ultimately the interior design of the Regent Bal Harbour is transitional with an Asian influence and artfully complements the building’s dynamic architecture that includes a curvilinear glass facade and two side 17-story wings intersecting a 26 story tower that together create the illusion of the building soaring like the curves on a ship’s sails.

Guests are welcomed into a stunning lobby resplendent with deep, rich hand-hewed millwork and offset by soothing textured neutral fabrics and natural stone to evoke a sense of luxurious, cool opulence. The guest rooms and suites all have a minimum of 10 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and semi-private elevator access. Features include leather writing desks, tables with bamboo-shoot accents, sheer textured drapes, stained natural woods, handmade Asian Grass Cloth wallpaper and leather wall accents.
