The Hotel Fort Des Moines is an icon in the Iowa capital, and the first phase of the reopening is here. As part of a multi-year partnership restoring the original hospitality spaces to the hotel’s original glory, Shea designed the elegant (and now open) Proudfoot and Bird on the hotel’s ground floor. Art Deco design features and plush seating are in keeping with the style of the era, and a name nodding to the hotel’s original architects also pays due to its history. The remaining hotel spaces are expected to open later this year; watch here for more details.
