Spring Street Hotel, LA
The 28-storey hotel is meant to resemble a rock emerging from the landscape, drawing inspiration from the region's natural features. Totalling 15,000 sq. m, the hotel will contain 176 guest rooms, including 20 suites, intended to capitalise on the area's resurgence as a tourist destination.
According to ASAP:
"The design will build on its distinctive location and cultural context to create a landmark destination and memorable hospitality experience.
"The design of the hotel is based on the idea of a large rock in the landscape drawing on a generation of land art in Los Angeles and the southwestern United States.
"The building is meant to stand in contrast to neighbouring structures. It benefits from the tension with the existing historic buildings to create a distinctive icon in the landscape.
Additional amenities will include a garden bar with a movie screen, a restaurant, banquet areas, meeting rooms, a gym, a business centre and retail space.
The building is currently under construction (Feb 2017).
