One Part Beach, One Part Custom Lighting; Stir Until Perfect

Tyler 2 loves spending time in the kitchen and a good case in point is our renovation of the Hilton Hotel kitchen, bar, and open-air dining room in Uptown Charlotte. Designed by Kevin Joyce Design, this project was a combination of upscale design elements, custom-built fixtures and plaster walls finished with wave-washed sand. Sounds like our kind of project.

The challenge:

Every project has its unique challenges but when you’re asked to keep a busy hotel and restaurant open during renovation, you know you’re going to have your hands full. Luckily for the Stanford Hotel Group, the team at Tyler 2 is considered an industry expert at renovating buildings while occupied. Led by Construction Manager Timothy Williams, the team at Tyler 2 worked with an architect over 700 miles away, managed over 300 change orders, fabricated custom lighting fixtures in China from a designer in Raleigh, NC and still managed to reopen the restaurant on time.

The end result:

Can you spell success? I knew you could. 

Sculpted plaster walls resembling ocean-kissed sand dunes, combined with rotating multi-colored lighting created an impression of light reflecting from water and sand at different times of the day and night. Add to that a wall hanging of imported glass globes and you can almost hear the surf rolling in.

The combination of color, light, pattern and texture resulted in a visually stunning display of craftsmanship from the team at Tyler 2 that is as tempting to the eye as the food is to the palate. Tyler 2 was a key ingredient in leading the team to deliver an end result that exceeded expectations and over the course of the five-month project we met every challenge with professionalism and dedication.

Next time you’re in the Uptown area, you might want to check out a little bit of the coast right in the heart of Charlotte.
