Incorporating the original arched façade that lined Windward Avenue in Venice, this 21,000 sf mixed-use transformation aimed to connect the old with the new by increasing the interaction between the street and the newly proposed retail shops lining the ground floor. The translucent façade wrapping the building bathes the upper floors in natural light and connects the office worker and hotel guest with the bustling bohemian environment.
As an annex to the adjacent and bustling Erwin Hotel in downtown Ventura, designed to supplement the Erwin by providing not only much needed additional hotel rooms, but more importantly desirable and revenue generating conference/event space. The space includes an additional X number of keys to the property, as well as XXX sf of event space. In addition, retail shops along the historic downtown street add a direct connection to the local traffic. The hotel is topped by a restaurant/bar with an expansive roof deck that provides vast and clear views of the vibrant community.
