SG Blocks (SGBX), a premier design company of container-based structures announced it's newest ingenious project. The company has built a container-based open-air bar and a hotel room mock-up for Marriott's Moxy Hotels.
The prototypes were recently revealed at The Americas Lodging Investment Summit on the grounds of Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE. Marriott announced the U.S. launch of its Moxy hotels, a contemporary currently open in Europe. Eight projects were identified and slated for major metropolitan locations including New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans and Chicago.
"We are honored that Marriott, one of the world's largest and leading hospitality companies, selected our firm to deliver two container-based products that fit its modern, high energy brand," stated Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. "The efficiency of our product combined with the speed of modular construction resulted in a fast, on trend, and sustainable solution."
The 20'X8' bar was engineered with external flaps to make it expandable to 20'X20'. It is currently at Marriott's corporate headquarters in Bethesda, Md., where it will be sent out across the country for use at various corporate events. The one-container hotel room prototype will be on permanent display at Marriott's headquarters.
"SG Blocks' container-based Moxy structures are the embodiment of the brand's style, design and attitude," said Tina Edmundson, Global Officer, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands. "The prototypes successfully demonstrated Moxy's fun, edgy, and youthful spirit and allowed patrons of the summit to fully experience the Moxy Hotels concept as we prepare to launch the brand in the U.S."
