UAB Hilton Lobby

Renovation of the hotel lobby and grand staircase

The renovation of the UAB Hilton lobby and grand staircase created a clean, luxurious space with a professional and collegiate feel.

The lobby is often a university visitor’s first impression of Birmingham and of UAB, so the material palette uses black iron accents and UAB’s green to establish a strong connection to Birmingham—The Iron City—and to the university.

Previously dark and dated, the renovated lobby features high-contrast textures and materials that create four defined zones of use: reception, café, lounge, and waiting.

High-quality furniture, textile selections, and custom wall graphics give each area a comfortable, friendly character.

Seating at the bottom of the renovated grand staircase creates space for hotel guests, visitors, and event attendees to work or relax.

Bright green canopies provide shade on the outdoor deck and reference the UAB brand system.
