Booth Hansen was approached to create a new boutique hotel in Birmingham, Michigan by the local owner and hotel’s operator. When complete, the hotel will boast over 140 rooms and suites, as well as a high-end restaurant, ballroom and meeting space. A pedestrian walkway on the north side of the building offers additional retail amenity potential. Two below-ground floors provide parking and back-of -house services. The Daxton’s design has a strong local focus, sourcing materials and services from nearby sources.

The hotel’s location in downtown Birmingham presented unique challenges from the city’s strict building requirements. The building is clad with a stone exterior, one of the few approved materials. The height of the building was also limited, with a residential requirement to secure a fifth floor and meet the owner’s total square footage goals.

While the hotel is located in a prime spot in the city’s business district, the sloped of the building site forced Booth Hansen to be creative in the location of access points. The main floor is broken into three levels, with building amenities carefully positioned to allow the best flow. The hotel ballroom, located on the middle level, offers it’s own entrance.
