Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design are pleased to announce that they have completed Architecture, Interior Design, and Project Management services for the first EVEN™ Hotel in Norwalk, Connecticut.
In collaboration with IHG’s EVEN Hotels design team, JN+A and HVS Design provided the design and directed the construction of the conversion of an existing hotel into this new wellness-focused hotel, the first for the EVEN brand. The EVEN™ Hotel Norwalk features 129 guestrooms on 4 floors and a 1,200 square foot Athletic Studio. Some of the brand’s signature elements include the Well-come Island; green wall made of live plants, bringing the outside indoors; and the Cork & Kale™ Market and Bar offering fresh and healthy food and beverage options. In addition, each room has an In-Room Training Zone for guests who prefer to work out in the privacy of their own guestroom.
“We are thrilled to have worked with IHG to bring their vision of EVEN Hotels into a reality,” said Jonathan C. Nehmer, AIA, ISHC, president of JN+A and managing principal of HVS Design. “This is a unique brand that is a first for the industry. We are proud to be a part of this milestone and showcase our turnkey services abilities.”
“JN+A and HVS Design have been an invaluable collaborator in bringing the EVEN brand and the EVEN Hotel Norwalk to life,” said Adam Glickman, head of EVEN™ Hotels. “Jonathan and his team have worked closely with us as we designed every aspect of the brand offer, and their expertise, creativity and guidance were instrumental in the brand development.”
EVEN™ Hotels is the first hotel brand designed for wellness-minded business and leisure travelers who maintain a healthy and active lifestyle and are looking for a complete wellness experience at an affordable price point.
The EVEN™ Hotel Norwalk is owned by InterContinental Hotels Group.
