The Summit Radisson Collection – a 31-story tower located in the heart of downtown Orlando – is one of the first of its kind in the United States in terms of being a modern take on the luxury way of life that combines condos, hotels, and retail spaces into one building. With views facing Lake Eola, The Summit will provide Orlando with upscale living and hotels – something the city has needed for several years.
In keeping a very minimalistic design approach, The Summit will expose its concrete columns as frames, while the parking garage will have clean vertical lines to bring movement and texture to the building. One of the most significant challenges in designing this building was merging a six-story parking garage, a 10-story hotel, and a 15-story residential area with retail and restaurant spaces into one structure – all while ensuring there is a clear distinction between guests and residents.
In delivering this project, the client desired to partner with local artist, Robert Catasus, to bring the building to life with abstract murals and colorful creations. The Radisson Collection brand is one of a kind, and The Summit will meet that expectation by providing a much-needed luxurious lifestyle option for Floridians, and visitors from around the world.
