Los Angeles-based sbe and real estate subsidiary Dakota Development collaborated with Rockwell Group to reimagine and transform Los Angeles venues Greystone Manor and Mercato di Vetro. The properties will reopen in 2016.
According to David Rockwell, founder and president of Rockwell Group, the design goal for Mercato di Vetro and Greystone Manor was to create multiple areas within each space to allow guests to choose his/her own experience.
Rockwell Group’s redesign will begin with Mercato di Vetro, a two-story environment based on the European-influenced concept of an assemblage of rooms around a central courtyard, defined by a louver wall. Upon completion, the new space’s design will have ground floor spaces with three lounges, a terrace and a central bar. There will also be lounge areas on the second floor. The space will be unveiled in early spring of 2016.
The second project will debut in early winter of 2016, with the transformation of Greystone Manor. The venue will offer new environments where guests can enjoy dinners and lounge, while still offering a central nightclub. The nightclub will have illuminated LED animation, graphic coverings inspired by foliage and surrealism, banquettes and elements of marble and champagne metal.
