Beltline Bike Hotel

TEAM: Gabriella Melendez – Georgia Institute of Technology

Located along the Atlanta Beltline in front of Old Fourth Ward Park and next to Two Urban Licks, the Beltline Bike Hotel becomes a point of attraction in itself for tourists, business professionals, and athletes that consider cycling as one of their greatest passions. The hotel connects to the Beltline with its internal velodrome, which becomes the most iconic public space of the project, incorporating a special attraction to the Beltline centered around a plaza full of bike friendly retail options. The velodrome is open year round for recreational riding but can also be reserved to host cycling events.

The first two levels are equipped with bike related amenities that complement the central program and brings life to the public spaces, including a bike repair/rental shop, sports apparel, a coffee shop, and a bar/restaurant. The rooms overlook the velodrome and the Atlanta skyline, while each room offers dedicated space to store bike gear and an area to mount bikes on the wall. Every space in the project has been designed with wide enough corridors for bikes to travel around, while pocket doors facilitate the movement of guests with their bikes. The building envelope employs a bold color palette and mimics the inner workings of a bicycle drivetrain with its serrated looking façade. The building design also takes into consideration high performance strategies to minimize energy consumption within its systems. The roof on the plaza- level side bars, the tower, and the inner part of the velodrome utilize solar panels, lowering energy production to 16 kWh/m2/yr, compared to 299.7 kWh/m2/yr produced by a standard hotel.
