omni dallas hotel – dallas, texas

Conceived as a key third anchor to revitalize downtown, the Omni Dallas Hotel provided much-needed lodging for the adjacent convention center — and is one of the area’s most successful hotel and leisure destinations. The 1,001-room hotel provides upscale guest experiences from arrival in the elegant porte cochere and its adjacent dining terraces, with their pleasing rhythm of water and fire features, up-lit trees and distinctive hardscape, to the multipurpose fourth-floor amenity terrace. The terrace features an outdoor bar, custom fire pit and seating, raised planters and a 1,900-square-foot pool elevated five feet above the bar terrace, creating the feeling of being apart within a shared space. Custom-cut Portuguese limestone, custom asphalt paver blends including Pennsylvania bluestone slate, and tropical hardwoods exude sophistication through distinctive materiality. Pegasus Plaza, just steps from the hotel’s door, helps further establish the area as a popular and well-visited destination with a restored Pegasus from the old Magnolia Building as its centerpiece.

In collaboration with the architecture firm HKS, TBG created a dynamic plan for the Ningbo Zixiang Paradise Crowne Plaza Resort based around a unique dragon motif, melding cultural significance, through the ancient Chinese symbol of the earth dragon, with sophisticated contemporary design sensibilities.

Also in Ningbo, China, TBG is working with HKS on the Ningbo Chunxiao Yangsha master plan, an approximately 200-acre master plan for a unique mixed-use tourist destination. The master plan is comprised of four main parts: a retail village, fishing village, nature research center/adventure camp, and an eco-village/island resort.

hilton anatole jadewaters resort pool complex – dallas, texas

Imagine a luxury resort pool experience winding through a premier collection of East Asian art at a landmark hotel — it’s real, and it’s JadeWaters. The Hilton Anatole boasts the country’s largest hotel art collection, and the addition of the JadeWaters resort pool complex extended that defining cultural character to the realm of aquatic recreation. In July 2017, TBG professionals conducted a post-occupancy evaluation to gauge the social, environmental and economic impacts of JadeWaters to the overall hotel and guest experience. Along with guest satisfaction surveys and food/beverage revenue impacts, the analysis included studies of surface temperatures at three times of day for various areas like wood bridges, artificial turf, pavers, concrete, decking, etc. The findings helped reveal JadeWaters’ impact on the development’s overall value.
