The resort officially unveils newly designed meetings and conference rooms
Michael Lucero, General Manager of the Abbey Resort, hired Milwaukee-based design and architecture group, Kahler Slater. The design firms goal? To capture the history and legacy of The Abbey Resort, and create a unified look by mixing casual and sophisticated materials that exemplifies the freshness of the lakes that will be inviting to a wide range of guests.
The renovations began in April 2018 with the installation of new roofs on all buildings, including Avani Spa, followed by a complete 5700 sq. ft. redesign of the eight Geneva Lake Meeting Rooms, where new carpet, lighting fixtures, paint scheme, window treatments, wood finishes, Wi-Fi and technology upgrades have been made.
Chicago-based Gettys Group has been hired to oversee the final round of renovations which are taking place in the resorts lobby and Porto – the multi-level venue located in the historic A-frame. “As you can imagine, it can be tricky making interior changes to the lobby, which is the busiest place throughout the resort,” said Dolan. The new enhancements include tile and carpet flooring, window treatments, paint scheme, seating groupings, and curated art which will be carried throughout the resort.
