It’s been awhile since blogging. Another busy year of architectural photography in the books and besides, look ma, new website! Since that endeavor is mostly out of the way, it’s back to highlighting some projects. First up for 2021 is The Hawk Apartments in uptown Charlotte for architects Cline Design Associates. Right down the road is a Krispy Kreme doughnuts and in the morning the smell of these sugar-drenched confections reach the site location. I’m just sayin’.
Metromont engineered the pre-cast concerete floor deck and insulated wall panel systems that form the high rise’s building envelope.
On the bottom level is retail and pedestrian entry lobby. The lobby features a sitting room with marble-patterned floor tile, partitioned by decorative metal panels, that leads to the mailboxes and elevator beyond. I believe all of the flat artwork was custom-commissioned for this project.
The community amenity features a lounge that could be utilized for personal or business use, informal gatherings, or lounging out in front of the TV. The interior designers really – and I mean really like this Tom Ford book.
And it does stand out. Took a few interior vignettes including overall views of this space. I like the calm, grounded color and material palette here, it straddles between the line between traditional and modern.
The views of Charlotte from The Hawk are outstanding and interiors are spacious. These are a few shots from the model apartment unit.
Did I mention great views of Uptown?
Was fun to work with Cline on yet another apartment design, more architectural photography to come!
