Door Thirteen designs Infusion Beach & Hotel in Palm Springs

1875 N. Palm Canyon Partners II, the developers of Infusion Beach & Hotel (IBH), released the design details for the new project set to open in Palm Springs in late 2015. The new hotel is a multi-million dollar renovation of the existing Garden Vista Hotel in Palm Springs' North End District.

The architect of IBH, Chicago based Door Thirteen, is known for its designs in high-rise construction, resort developments, residential dwellings and planned communities. It served as the lead architectural firm working with the Infusion brand since the development of its first nightclub/hotel in San Francisco, Infusion Lounge and Hotel Fusion, in 2009.

According to Door Thirteen's lead designer, Nathan Kaye, for IBH, the firm will be using a refined, borderline minimal design, incorporating the Tech-Asian signature Infusion brand, with references to the Modernism style. Rooms will include platform beds, white marble counters with moveable sliding screens, white-washed wood floors, a European self-contained integrated shower/spa area with free-standing tub/basin, and folding glass walls that will disappear into a built-in niche.

The Garden Vista will remain open through July 2015 when renovation/construction will begin to transform the property into the new Infusion Beach & Hotel.
