Koning Eizenberg Architecture
Los Angeles, CA
This hotel comprised three sites with three buildings that required a coherent identity. All had compromised accessibility, maintenance, and aesthetic issues. When work began in the late 1990s the buildings were long-neglected and the now-popular mid-century modern style had not yet attracted public affection. Nevertheless a very limited budget helped make the case that the strong compositional bones (notably of the curved corner building) were worth reinstating as a jumping off point for design.
