“Not very many people can see that extreme detail in their head, much less pull it off, have it installed and have it be as close to perfect as you can get it! I am very happy and very proud to have worked with Jennifer on my penthouse. No one walks in here that is not totally blown away and that’s what I wanted!”

To assist with the design-build of the renovated space, Crosby Design Group created full construction documents.

“We inset all door casings in the hallway 6 inches to eliminate obstructing the view down the gallery hallway to the owner’s suite’s focal glass door. We also removed the foyer coat closet to add a custom tree hall bench, removed the wall between the living room and office to add a two-sided, see-through water vapor fireplace creating a true architectural element in the heart of the space.

Crosby Design Group Celebrates Completion of Loews Atlanta Hotel Penthouse“Our drawings detailed all the framing needed to build including the scalloped brick living room ceiling and reclaimed beam locations and how they related to the adjacent concrete ceilings,” Crosby said.

The owner’s suite serves as the ultimate retreat with brick ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows,  a spa-like bath with walk-in steam shower featuring dual shower heads, body sprayers, two rain showerheads and two benches, a separate soaking tub and dual custom vanities that float on a reclaimed wood wall overlooking Downtown Atlanta and an expansive walk-in custom closet complete with coffee/wine bar with ice machine and custom storage with built-in watch safe.

Set in the midst of thriving Midtown Atlanta, the newly renovated penthouse blends perfectly with the latest makeover of Loews Atlanta Hotel.
