128 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Hedstrom Design Knoxville, Tennessee The Firefly at the Downtown Hilton, Knoxville, Tennessee Following their acquisition of the 320-room Downtown Hilton Hotel, D.C.-based Buccini/Pollin Group commissioned Hedstrom Design to bring a Knoxville vibe to the Firefly, a semipublic courtyard supporting the hotel, a coffee shop and the Marble City Kitchen restaurant and bar. The design solution had to allow diverse user groups to enjoy the space simultaneously. Movable seating offers flexibility beneath a large custom trellis designed to provide a tangible and cozy scale against the hotel's 18-story fa├žade. Custom stadium seating doubles as a buffer of the public sidewalk; lounge seating around a custom fire table offers a more intimate gathering space.

Founded in 2007 by principal Sara Hedstrom Pinnell, the seven-member firm has completed over 500 diverse projects for both the public and private sectors.
