Restoration and repurposing of a 100-year old landmark in Springfield, Missouri.
Hotel Vandivort is the first centrally-located hotel in the heart of downtown Springfield, Missouri. In Phase I – repurposing a former Masonic Temple into a boutique hotel, Lamar Johnson Collaborative worked with its client to preserve the historic character of the building while incorporating modern efficiencies necessary to achieve LEED Gold certification. Phase II – the expansion will contain 48 new rooms which will include standard kings and 15 additional suites.
The crown jewel of phase II will be the fifth floor sky bar. A 1,300 square-foot, 4-seasons bar containing interior seating space with almost a 180 degree view of downtown Springfield. The fifth floor will also have over 3,300 square feet of exterior patio area with multiple seating and gathering spaces that overlook the surrounding area.
