Boutique Design Events and Trade Fairs

A 1960s mid-century building has been transformed into a 250-room hotel.

Overhauled by Los Angeles-based practice Studio Collective, the 12-story tower, originally designed by architect Welton Becket, is one of the newest hotels to crop up in the beachside community.

Exteriors of the mid-century building were mainly left intact, while interiors underwent a complete refresh—featuring a pared back palette of natural materials including terrazzo floors, wood-clad ceilings, and woven accents.

There is “a sense of the new and dynamic through costal influences and a true California spirit,” notes the studio.

Furnishings are contemporary in nature and evoke a mid-century feel reminiscent of the structure’s history. A custom mural behind the reception desk in the lobby was designed by Brooklyn-based artist Alex Proba, while Becket’s granddaughter, Alexandra Becket, has created wallpapers custom for the hotel.
