I am currently working on a project for the Jupiter Hotel in Portland, Oregon as they grow their offerings with their new Jupiter NEXT expansion. These 3D renderings show how my customized artwork will be incorporated into each guest room as part of the bed headboards. The finalized images will be revealed Spring of 2018 during the grand opening. Stay Tuned!
CASE STUDY: Jupiter NEXT Guest Room Artwork
LOCATION: 800 E. Burnside St., Portland, OR, 97214
CLIENT: Jupiter Hotel, Portland, Oregon
WHEN: Launching Spring 2018
MISSION/SCOPE OF WORK: The Jupiter Hotel is a locally owned establishment loved by tourists and locals alike. They are a creative, boutique hotel in a vibrant location near downtown Portland via the Burnside Bridge. They are a cultural hub with a music venue, restaurant, event spaces, and a gallery all in the same square block. Now they are expanding and building a new, unique, six story hotel adjacent to the original called Jupiter NEXT which will provide many amazing views of the city. They wanted artwork that reflected the unique Portland culture their guests will enjoy, and their own connection to the community.
RESULTS: I worked closely with the Jupiter hotel and their interior design team to brainstorm the use of photomontage artwork with their unique design ideas; they didn’t just want the standard, small format, framed art as part of their decor. They decided to incorporate my artwork into the bed headboards, creating large format work to fill the room while showing boutique comfort. The concept mimics the amazing views of downtown Portland seen through many of the rooms and vantage points within the hotel. To accomplish this, I took my Portland scenes that reflected downtown Portland and the city’s iconic culture then adjusted them to fit the headboard format. Then I customized the scenes further by adding a Jupiter Hotel, or Jupiter Next element in every scene in a closely integrated fashion to show their connection to the city.
