Rule Joy Trammell Rubio was responsible for architectural, structural, MEP and lighting design services for the public spaces of this hotel located in the historic Philadelphia Saving Fund Society (PSFS) building in City Center, Philadelphia, the first international-style skyscraper in the United States (built circa 1932). The renovation included major renovation of the lobby, restaurant, and entry spaces and expansion and re-design of meeting rooms. A new lobby lounge will welcome guests as they arrive and will, along with a relocated and historically-sensitive new canopy, help to reorient the entry sequence and provide a smoother, enhanced sense of arrival.

A brand-new restaurant and bar concept adjacent to the lobby lounge will complete the guest experience. Additional renovation work includes modifications to hotel administrative offices as well as renovated meeting rooms and conference space throughout the building.
" We successfully navigated the City of Philadelphia's Historic Design Commission and Building Department to gain approval of the exterior skin improvements and building changes, the project finished on time and under budget, and this project represents the fifth Loews Hotel project completed by RJTR since 2010."
