A renovation of the ground-floor common area to create a living room space for guests. Intricately patterned concrete overlay floors surround a stainless-steel-clad fireplace. Colored nautical ropes hang from the ceiling, integrating with beams of light and blending into the custom banquettes. The cocktail bar is finished with custom concrete panels and a Sensitile countertop that is designed to interact with light. Renovation includes the Trace Restaurant and the Sushi Bar, adding more custom features and a ventricular wall. The hotel was operating throughout the four-month project.
