Hotel Achieves Balanced and Beautiful Facade

The Westin Jackson hotel in Jackson, Mississippi.

The Westin Jackson, a 203-room hotel in Jackson, Miss., is part of a $60-million public-private development in the downtown arts and culture district. The 174,000-square-foot hotel was completed in June 2017. 

Amenities at the hotel include a saltwater pool, a 6,000-square-foot spa, and a modern wine bar and bistro. The hotel is also located within close proximity to the Jackson Convention Complex.

To reflect the area’s deep musical heritage, the facility uses CENTRIA products, metaphorically celebrating the birthplace of the Delta Blues and nodding to the music’s instrumentation, rhythm, and multi-layered composition.

In total, more than 31,000 square feet of CENTRIA SDP-175 Structural Design Panels, Econolap exposed fastener metal rainscreens, and Style-Rib exposed fastener panels were used on the building’s façade.

Emulating sheets of music, the facade uses compositional “wall” features and patterns in various ways. Variegated finishes on the standing seam wall cladding also contributes to the drama, rhythm, and style in a manner similar to a musical score.

CENTRIA SDP-175 Structural Design Panels are structural standing seam roof panels that feature a snap-together seam that does not require mechanical seaming yet provides excellent resistance to wind uplift. These panels were used for a custom wall application.

Econolap exposed fastener panels are versatile panels that can be used as exterior or interior walls, roofs, and soffits with ribs that run horizontally or vertically. These panels were used in the vertical configuration.
