The Alluvian Hotel
The Alluvian, a luxury contemporary boutique hotel in the Mississippi Delta designed for the Viking Range Corporation, opened in the spring of 2003 to wide acclaim. On first look at the hotel, billed as, “A cosmopolitan hotel deep in the Delta,” the stylish design belies its location. Yet, a closer look reveals the strong connection between the layered and complex design elements and the nature of the alluvial topography itself.
ForrestPerkins served as design architect and interior designer for this fifty-room hotel. The building comprises three existing structures, one of which was the original Hotel Irving, long closed and left with no intact interior features.
