Atlanta’s Newest Luxury Hotel

Kimpton Overland Hotel
Atlanta, Georgia, USA

This four-star hotel overlooks the HOK-designed Porsche Experience Center and Headquarters and is just outside Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The design harnesses the energy of this rapidly transforming landscape.

Siting the hotel adjacent to Porsche’s Experience Center enhances the interaction of the two buildings’ complementary forms. The hotel’s horizontal stance, articulated roof and simple color palette of pearl white and charcoal gray evoke a modern sense of understated power and movement.

The design of the hotel’s signature form optimizes the building’s performance and energy use while connecting the guest experience with Porsche’s high-performance automobiles and the roaring engines of planes overhead. Each room enjoys a view of planes, trains, automobiles or the downtown skyline.

With its efficient use of space and focus on luxury, the hotel takes planning and stylistic cues from modern European properties. It is sophisticated without being formal, worldly without being pretentious and luxurious while still comfortable. Subtle motorsport-related interior design elements speak to the essence of Porsche’s global brand.

Guest amenities include a signature fine-dining restaurant, business meeting facilities with flexible ballrooms, 18 executive suites, a health club, a spa and pool, and a rooftop lounge with sweeping views to Porsche’s 1.6-mile driving experience track and the world’s busiest airport.

Despite the proximity to Porsche’s track, the airport and active railroad tracks, guests can retreat to the quiet comfort of their rooms or enjoy relaxing conversations over a meal. The team mitigated the site’s noise by specifying continuous insulation over enhanced exterior wall assemblies, concrete masses at roof decks and triple-glazed curtain wall systems with a six-inch air space. 

The hotel, which reclaims the brownfield site of an abandoned Ford automobile manufacturing plant, is another catalyst for development in Atlanta’s growing Aerotropolis district.
