EDG, WATG combine for bicoastal styled property in Calif.

Lido House Hotel

EDG Interior Architecture + Design, which is based in Novato, Calif., will craft R.D. Olson Development’s new Lido House Hotel in Newport Beach, Calif. Architecture will be handled by WATG. Located at the Balboa Peninsula, the 130-room hotel will replace the former Newport Beach City Hall.

Plans for the four-story, 98,725-square-foot hotel have been approved by the Newport City Council. Construction is slated to kick off this spring.

Design-wise, Lido House will have a bicoastal style, drawing influence from both historic California structures like the Balboa Pavilion as well as architecture styles commonly found in Cape Cod.

The hotel will have a variety of guestroom designs in addition to suites, two-story villas and a presidential suite. Additional amenities will include a spa, restaurant, pool, rooftop bar, and meeting and retail spaces.
