Liberty Trust Hotel

Roanoke, Virginia

In the revitalized downtown district of Roanoke Virginia, Glavé & Holmes Architecture provided interior design services in collaboration with the architect, Balzer & Associates, to design the adaptive re-use of an iconic 1910 bank building. This 8-story building encompassing just under 40,000 square feet, features 54 guest rooms and includes a grand lobby space with a bar, lounge, and social area. G&HA drew inspiration from the building’s historical significance, integrating design elements reminiscent of its banking origins into modern and elegant guest rooms. From “bank passbook” room cards to local Roanoke signage, each guest will experience a unique ambiance.

The grand lobby has been reimaged as a new destination in Roanoke for coffee, cocktails, and light meals. While the project does not accommodate a full-service kitchen, the design team worked with local restaurateurs to develop a menu that cooperates with the local food and drink scene, rather than compete with it.
