Hattie's Restaurant

The existing Strathallan Hotel originally constructed in 1978 went through major renovations and a rebirth in 2012. The restoration of the hotel quickly generated more attention requiring another upgrade and expansion to the 9th floor.


This expansion provided a new Banquet Space and Exterior Patio on the open roof area. The 9th floor/rooftop had an enclosed area of 4,910 sq. ft. which increased to 6,040 sq. ft. for a net addition of 1,130 sq. ft. The exterior walls of the new Banquet Room were held back from the existing parapet wall to provide a continuous De open patio area around the perimeter of the building. The stepping back of the new enclosure from the walls below, the use of a simple glass enclosure and the extended overhang of the new areas combine to provide a compatible and pleasing addition to the current buildings massing and façade.


The walls of the new space are primarily glass with some simulated stone. The soffits of the large overhang as well as exterior walls enclosing the kitchen and support spaces on the east side are stucco. The interior space is replete with tufted leather booths, mahogany-paneled walls and chandelieradorned ceilings.
