Design Practice Location:
Holston House occupies the historic 1920s-era James Robertson Hotel building, originally designed by Nashville-based architects Marr & Holman in 1929. The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984 and now serves as the first purpose-built hotel in the Hyatt Unbound Collection. In preserving much of the building’s rich art-deco character, Stonehill Taylor reimagined the hotel, combining rugged modernism with authenticity through various décor elements such as classic overdyed rugs, leather accents and wooden features. Evoking a timeless sensibility and passion for craft, Holston House’s interior design reflects the city’s famous flair, such as leather goods of 20th-century designer Peter Nappi and the raw sounds of the late country and western star Johnny Cash.
