The Salt River Marriott Residence Inn is unique to the standard Residence Inn product, not only in design details but also being one of the first to be built on U.S. tribal lands. The specifier worked with the the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian tribal leaders to create design details in the custom bird mobile and in the mural illuminated by our LA2 Slim Ring light fixtures, upon entering the building. The overarching goals of this project were to demonstrate respect toward and incorporate the influences of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
I entered the project while it had been in development stages and quoted by another LightArt PM, being spearheaded by another specifier design firm. Since I came into the project picking up where things were left off, as did the new specifier, time was of the essence and gathering the necessary information from outside sources proved to be a bit challenging.
The mobile configuration was a suspension style I created and had not been done before. Additionally, all of the work I created in detailing the layout and designing the hanging/installation schematic, became a new method for our design and sales team, and created the unique and subtle tribal influence in the decor the end user was seeking for the space.
