Hotels, motels, pubs, restaurants, bars, cafes and other hospitality venues require most spaces to be stable and structured, yet other spaces that offer clever, flexible configurations. EDM has this experience in a host of different styles - cozy, chic, traditional, vintage, modern, luxurious or minimalist - with clients and owners that represent major brands to small, boutique lodging.
