The Dwell Architecture in Chattanooga

Architecture Cogent Studios

A hotel almost its entire life, the three-story brick and limestone structure, built in 1909, was given a full facelift, yet one that retains its historic charm.

Architects Trey Wheeler and Aaron Cole, of Cogent Studios, took on a structure that was born to be a hotel. By completely reimagining the hotel bar and creating entirely new lounge areas, the Cogent team has created multiple spaces that not only invite guests to experience hospitality Chattanooga-style, but serve as a gathering place for locals who come to enjoy the buzzing scene now created by The Dwell.

Interior design Seija Ojanpera

With guestrooms awash in wallpaper and furniture from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, The Dwell exhibits a retro sense of luxury.

To capture just the right sense of intimacy, glamour, charm, and history at The Dwell, the design team of Seija Ojanpera and Laurel Creager created a unique look consistent with the midcentury modern aesthetics of the structure. Bold colors keep the rooms lively and energetic, while rustic hardwoods and exposed brick give a gentle nod to Chattanooga’s industrial heritage.
