oakland marriott convention center

the cim group, which owns the oakland marriott, needed some guidance on how to reconsider the interface of the hotel and the oakland convention center located on the property. cost-effective strategies that utilized existing building systems but updated the appearance of the existing convention center and pre-function lobby were proposed, utilizing sustainable lighting strategies and materials. in its current state, the lobby lacked a true sense of identity from without, and also a means to sponsor informal, spur-of-the-moment conversations during convention activities.
