Surety Hotel
by DLR Group

DLR Group/Daniel Kelleghan

Preserving its original 1913 design, the Surety building was thoughtfully transformed from a bank to a boutique hotel centered in Des Moines' historic financial district.

A delicate balance of its opulent Beaux-Art shell, the design speaks to social currency, both past and present, while evoking a fresh, design forward urban respite.

This project has been longlisted in the hotel and short-stay interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
