Grand Opening | The Bunn House

Bunn Comp 01Modern Asheville, along with our friends at 828 Design, made a stop at the Bunn House boutique hotel opening late yesterday afternoon. 828 Design created the venue’s branding and marketing. The new 5 room hotel is located between Charlotte and Merrimon Ave in what I deem to be the “North Overlook” to downtown.


The owners purchased the 1905 home two years past and have slowly crafting this luxury mini-hotel. They complimented the solid brick home with modern loft-style interiors and exterior detailing that give it an urban vibe while blending in soft linens and clean cabinetry to maintain a spa feel. Overall, a carefully selected blend that is both subtle and seamless. Bunn House Comp 02

On the exterior they added a roof deck to take in a view of downtown Asheville {photo below}, along with amenities to hold small events in the extensive garden space. The hotel should become a unique and refreshing destination outside the chain hotels for generations of visitors. For more information visit their website here. Cheers!IMG_2053

Hotel Indigo

designed by Calloway Johnson Moore and WestMicrosoft Word - 3D-Elevations.doc

Hotel Indigo is a new boutique hotel situated on the edge of downtown where the former Chamber of Commerce building sat.  It can’t be missed towering over the highway 240 while currently under construction.  

Here is information provided by reporter Mark Barrett of the Citizen-Times:  The building will contain 100 hotel rooms and 12 condominium units.  Hotel Indigo is a relatively new brand of InterContinental Hotels Group, a United Kingdom based company.  The chain is “very artsy and eclectic,” and Hotel Indigos are designed individually instead of employing chainwide, cookie cutter designs.  This new hotel is designed by a local company.
