Concord Engineering Group serves as m/e/p engineer DAS Architects designing 14-story wellness hotel

HILADELPHIA, PA — DAS Architects , is designing a 14-story hotel and restaurant at 11th & Sansom that will accentuate health and wellness. “Greek Philosophy’s guid- ing principles of balance and unity informed our design of this boutique hotel,” said Susan Davidson, IDC , co-founder and principal of DAS Architects. “The modern and minimalist spaces will feature a warm and neutral color palette, emphasizing natural materials, with ex- pansive green walls on every floor. Our goal is to create an environment that promotes healing, centering and living a meaningful life.” Adjacent to Jefferson Hos- pital, the 86-room hotel at 122 South 11th Street will be a light-filled glass and aluminum-clad tower with dark bronze accents. “The elegance and comfort of Blu Ivy will be a welcome addition to the surrounding medical neighborhood,” said David A.

visitors who want a quiet con- templative place in Midtown.” Anthos, the two-story res- taurant within the hotel, will have a modernMediterranean vibe with subtle references to the Greek heritage of the owners. The exterior of the restaurant will be embel- lished with a steel pergola and planters of ivy with glass folding partitions extending the dining experience out to the streetscape. Anthos will have bar seating for 23 and restaurant seating for 198. DAS’s client, Sansom Realty Holdings, is the owner of Pi- etro’s, Estia and several other successful restaurants in the region. “Anthos means ‘flowering’

in Greek,” said Davidson, “and that describes the sense we are trying to convey. This is a place to heal and thrive. Eliminating the typical sen- sory traps, the furnishings and finishes will be calming and inspired by nature and guests will feel their spirits revived.” Blu Ivy and Anthos are ex- pected to be complete in Fall 2020. The design team includes DAS Architects – architecture, interior design, furniture design; O’Donnell & Nac- carato – structural engineer- ing; Concord Engineering Group – m/e/p engineering; Corsi Associates – food ser- vice design. 
