An "electrifying atmosphere" is exactly what Hilton Garden Inn hotel developer and owner, Jim Thompson of New Century Investments Hotels and Restaurants, envisioned for his popular 107-key property in midtown Oklahoma City.

"Our goal was to create a vibrant, contemporary atmosphere that would add an upgraded value to the property," says architect Jon Crowdus of JC Architects, Tulsa, Okla.

To create a unique aesthetic, Crowdus integrated Oakland, Calif.-based Móz Designs into the hotel's overall design.

Móz products can be found throughout the design such as the reception center featuring 18-foothigh columns highlighted with 24-inch-square Móz columns wrapped around the structure and finished in a bamboo pattern with a Brazilian cherry tone. Móz products are also used to separate spaces such as the "wall weave" room divider separating the reception and lounge areas. The wall consists of a clearbrushed finish with Brazillian cherry columns.

Aside from the reception and lounge areas, Thompson took care to make the hotel's 809 Sports Bar and Grill distinctive with an illuminated, curved bar faced with Móz clear-brushed metal laminate in a waterfall pattern that changes color with Lektron RGB LEDs. The grill features two Móz Honduran Mahogany-toned wall weaves finished with a horizontal coarse grain pattern.

The Móz features continue throughout the space, including a 10-foot-tall cylindrical electric red Móz liquor cabinet with glass door and Móz-art "fireplace" in the entry. The 4- by 10-inch fireplace is entitled, "Firestorm" and was fabricated from 1/8-inch-thick aluminum. Even the breakfast buffet stands apart as the buffet counter faces a wall weave in a clear brushed finish.

"The Móz contemporary flair gave us direction in regard to the selection of furniture design and fabrics, as well as artwork throughout the hotel," says Thompson.
