Mixed use, unified ensemble
The Aventine is a mixed-use development located on a sloping 12-acre site in University Center and visible from a major north-south highway. The program included a 400-room Hyatt Regency Hotel, a 225,000-SF office building, a health club and swimming pool complex, a compound of restaurants, a extensive underground parking. The buildings are organized on the site to take advantage of the southern views and to maximize sunlight into the center of the site where the majority of recreational activities are located.
Although the buildings have their own identities, the commonality of their architectural language, original colors, and materials create a unified ensemble of buildings. Unusual at the time, Michael Graves designed not only the architecture but also the interiors of the hotels and many custom-designed furnishings.
