“All experience is an arch, to build upon.”
– Henry Adams
Architecture, Interior Design, and Lighting Design
Designed for world travelers who find themselves at home all over the globe, Three Arches, Hyatt Centric Buckhead’s main restaurant, balances the old with the new with a patina of natural materials that form a contemporary experience.
From the hotel lobby, one passes through airy curtains draped within a steel archway, where a monolithic hand-textured stone and aged bronze bar with glowing shelves invites guests to order their morning coffee and pastry. Floating above, reclaimed wood beams with swags of hand-stitched patchwork evoke tented city center markets. In the evening, standing in front of an original piece by contemporary artist Kimo Minton, a host greets guests and seats them at tables detailed in engraved nickel and stretched buffalo leather. Custom banquettes with authentic Turkish rug pillows are designed to embrace diners through tactile and visual elements. The dining area is meant to provide an open and sociable space with small flexible tables that can seat an intimate party of two or a large group of twelve. The warm velvet gold tones of the barstools, rich green hand-pressed tiles, and stone mosaic floor add worldly details to provide a unique experience. Out on the terrace, a firepit invites guests to chat over drinks on brisk evenings with the light of the fire reflecting off the glass mosaic mural in the background.
Just as Atlanta serves as a cultural intersection, this restaurant was designed to reflect a crossroads moment where people are inspired to come together to share personal experiences over good food.
