Sims Patrick Studio is thrilled to have The Partridge Inn recognized in Design & Build Magazine. This 144 guest room hotel got rave reviews after reopening just in time for the Master's in Augusta, Georgia. Below is an excerpt from the article:
The wonder of 144 guest rooms, each individually reflecting the quiet, bygone elegance of southern resorts known as “clubs,” is unfolding in Augusta, just as the world’s greatest golfers gather in Georgia for the fabled Masters Tournament.
THEY ARE THE FORTUNATE FIRSTS TO EXPERIENCE the completely renovated Partridge Inn, a foundation of comfortable sophistication for travelers since 1892. Corporate visitors and leisure vacationers will begin arriving, as spring blooms along with the second phase of renovations. “First, the guest rooms, expansive verandah and the exterior,” noted Libby Patrick, CEO of the Atlanta-based architecture and interior design firm Sims Patrick Studio. “Second, more of the signature public spaces for gracious gatherings.” Visitors escaping the frozen North, much as The Partridge Inn guests a century ago, will follow closely on the heels of 2015 spring and summer travelers seeking what designer Patrick calls “Old world glamour merging with modern southern charm.” Through every era and iteration of The Partridge Inn—including a multitude of additions and renovations—the verandah and balconies provided a signature look. “Today, that look continues with a bit of a new twist,” says Patrick, who likes to call them porches. “The porches are interactive, and are a living room for the city folks. Here, the hotel connects to the community in seamless, welcoming ways,” Patrick explains.
