For Noelle, a Tribute Portfolio hotel and adaptive-reuse property located in Nashville, TN, maintaining the historic vibe and complementing it with modern controls and amenities was key to re-imagining the space. The structure stands at the entrance to Printer’s Alley and served as a bank and an office building before returning to its roots as a hotel. To help plan the four-year restoration project, Coast 2 Coast partnered with Rockbridge, and their architecture team – Feltus Hawkins Design and Dryden Architecture – in capturing the existing conditions of the building.
Using laser scanning, the Coast 2 Coast team captured the beautiful historic details that were to be restored and prominently featured in the new design. A Revit model of the space was also delivered so that demolition could be carefully planned and executed.
The renovation included exterior restoration, exhaustive interior structural repair, as well as a new 10-story addition over the existing floors. This addition expanded the overall footprint of the building, adding 224 guest rooms, new event spaces, and a rooftop bar. Rehabilitation also included the finishes and furnishings pay homage to many of the historic details of the building, reflecting the original essence as the 1929 building. The Noelle Hotel received a Preservation Award from the Metropolitan Nashville Historical Commission.
