Courtyard by Marriott Suites
Approvals: Planning Commission, Board of Architectural Review
District: Charlottesville, VA
Design Develop worked closely with the consulting architect to study the mass, scale, and overall aesthetics of this Courtyard by Marriott on a very prominent site in downtown Charlottesville.
Going through several iterations, the services provided by Design Develop, including rendered stills, massing models, and final animations, allowed for a productive conversation between the design architect, the consulting architect, the Board of Architectural Review and the Planning Commission to refine and receive permit.
