This hotel comprised three sites and three buildings in need of a coherent identity. All had compromised accessibility, maintenance, and aesthetic issues. When work began, the buildings were long-neglected and the now-popular mid-century modern style had not yet gained public affection.
A limited budget helped make the case that the strong compositional bones were worth reinstating as a jumping off point for design.
Simple design elements (like the new totem elevator) do double-duty to address accessibility and strengthen the original structures' mid-century modern roots.
