Great hospitality design is not merely about design for today – it’s about designing for the future. What will keep the guest returning again and again, a decade or more into the future?

Comfortable, invigorating, and refined, our designs provide a memorable guest experience. By researching the place and people, we can create hospitality experiences that are culturally relevant to the surrounding community. We assist our clients in developing hotels and residences that are designed both for living and business, welcoming to visitors from all walks of life, for whatever purpose they need from a space.

“While we are an expansive team, with an array of experience, our core aim is still to provide personal service to every client.”

-Ron Stang, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, Board Chairman

We design projects that inspire communities to actively interact with their surroundings, are profitable and promote sustainable design practices. Placemaking and market feasibility are needed to create an environment with immediate and long-term value. At Stevens & Wilkinson we use our years of industry expertise to focus on design solutions that create an overarching sense of place.

No matter how great a destination looks, leisure and hospitality projects should be developed with efficiency and operation in mind. Beauty without function is not something a hotel or boutique property can afford.

At SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson, we consider the challenges that your team could face throughout the life of the project. Our team is skilled in providing innovative hospitality designs that create one-of-a-kind atmospheres for the nation’s top brands. Whether we’re designing new construction or renovating adaptive reuse facilities, we create comfortable and inviting environments that promote guest satisfaction.

With decades of experience across a diverse range of properties, our team has completed some of the most high-profile projects in the region. View some of our premiere projects below.

At SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson, we have partnered with hotel brands and boutique destinations throughout the Southeast region. Our clients represent some of the leading names in the hospitality industry. It’s not just one-time projects either, as clients have continued to come back time and time again.

“From plantation-style fraternity housing to adaptive reuse of landmark buildings that retain their historic qualities, we strive to create residences that mesh with their surroundings.”

- Janice Wittschiebe, AIA, NCIDQ, LEED AP, Principal, Vice President  

The complex needs of diverse residents requires exceptional planning and design. There is a certain unpredictability when it comes to the future of residential projects – who will occupy them and how will they turn their new space into their dream home?

Through years of experience, our team has developed a strategic process to help guide clients through the planning and design of multi-family environments. We creatively blend future trends with contemporary designs, all while remaining mindful of the needs of the community. By creating a wonderful sense of place, we look to enhance the quality of life of our tenants.

“Being able to go from work, to play, to home, an all in one easily-walkable building is the dream for the newer generation.”

- Ken Daenecke, PE, RCDD, LEED AP, Principal, Senior Vice President, Director of Engineering (SWGA)

Projects for multi-family use can incorporate a range of style requirements. Everything from high-rise apartment buildings to small-scale developments deserve the utmost attention. These projects need to reflect the ever-changing demographics and desires of communities.

SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson understands the demands of modern life, and the concerns of developers and building owners. We draw from best practices to achieve our clients’ goals, delivering innovative solutions for ambitious sustainability goals, challenging locations, and fast-track timelines. No matter the building type, we produce designs with quality and safety at the forefront.

“We don’t design houses and apartment buildings, we design homes and communities. A residence is so much more than the building itself.”

- Bill Polk, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Principal, Vice President (SWGA)

People are finding their way back to the city. They want places that are alive, places that are vibrant, and places where they can live, work and play. Mixed-use centers are destinations that excite people, that pull them in and hold them. They need to work to create great urban places and benefit the public realm.

The perfect mixed-use project will create a property that is built around the pedestrian, with long-term value and livability in mind. It will be free of predictability and formula, instead creating a singular experience that is not replicated anywhere else. SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson understands the unique aspects of designing mixed-use properties, as there are plenty factors to consider – i.e. politics, economics, and real estate, just to name a few.

That’s why we study and evaluate the neighborhood’s character and develop a plan to create a property that has a real sense of place. Mixed-use properties should belong, not stand out. They need to have spirit and uniqueness, yet speak to the history of an area. Our experience spans from planning and feasibility studies through project delivery – implementing principles of proven urbanism, connectivity and sustainability.

Our expertise in delivering distinctive mixed-use developments has made SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson a leader in complex projects of this nature throughout the southeast. Click through to see some of our premiere projects below.

Our clients represent some of the leading investors and property owners in the southeast. Mixed-use development is a complex task, to be undertaken only with a deep understanding of the details involved. Returning time and again, our clients have experienced first-hand the emphasis we put on providing a precise, timely project.

“When you compare single-use and mixed-use projects of similar size, the mixed-use projects do a better job of being efficient when it comes to land and resources, while also generating higher revenues."

- Bill Fleming, AIA, Vice President and Senior Architect

With a collaborative approach that brings together team members from a variety of disciplines, we focus on how every facet of a property can be designed to capture distinct qualities. Embracing modern, design-based technology and pairing it with a team of forward-thinking experts, we provide integrated, well-coordinated design services. At SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson, we have demonstrated our ability to deliver superior solutions and memorable experiences, all while remaining great stewards of the project’s resources.
