Sector 3 recently completed designs for a $3.5M hotel renovation in Rocky Mount, NC. Set for construction in early 2019, this historic structure is positioned as a mid-century modern-themed motor lodge style resort.

Thelonious Monk, the great Jazz pianist and composer, was born in Rocky Mount, North Carolina in 1917, and grew up in the neighborhood nearby the hotel. Though he moved to New York at a young age, his "Southern roots had an important influence on his music." (NPR)  Photo courtesy of the Library of Congress.

The 64 rooms are divided between standard king and queen guest rooms, pet-friendly rooms, bunk rooms and four unique suite designs.

The interior design concept -- Fresh Atomic -- blends retro styled furniture and finishes with a contemporary minimalist aesthetic.

Originally built in 1961, this concrete, glass, steel and masonry building employed salvaged brick from nearby 19th century mill buildings along the Tar River.

The hotel is updated for the 21st Century by relocating the motor-lodge style internal parking in order to create a private amenities courtyard for guests. The project is a joint venture with east coast-based Good Work Architects.
