Affectionately referred to as the “Design Divas”, Lavender & Lotus was one of four designers to collaborate on CATCH’s major renovation of the Endicott Hotel in downtown Concord. The intention for this project was to renovate the historical property from low-income housing to full-market rentals, with commercial spaces available at street level.
Our task as designers was to develop two design concepts for the board to chose from. With a winning concept in place, we finalized selections regarding flooring, lighting, cabinetry, countertops, hardware, trim details, paint colors, and more. Recommendations regarding space planning improvements were also offered to amend the architect’s design. Given the history of the building, we were delighted for the opportunity to repurpose original details into furnishings and accessories, such as the doorknob display in the 1st floor common room.
Although a fire early in construction complicated funding through historical preservation, we were fortunate the damage to the building was not as destructive as it could have been.
