This urban select-service hotel is an anchor for the $4-billion, pedestrian-oriented master plan of the Dallas Midtown district. The architects sought to invoke AC Hotels’ Spanish heritage by emulating Catalan Modernism, especially in the faceted planes of the facade, which comprise a lightweight metal rainscreen cladding system. The glazed lobby and lounge separate a public pedestrian zone and a bamboo-lined private pool courtyard. Layered wooden ceiling planes in the lobby lend warmth to the otherwise cool and expansive area.
