For the Bungalow Huntington Beach lounge, Studio Collective envisioned a clean design so the property offers views of the Pacific Coast Highway and the Huntington Beach Pier. The firm partnered with entrepreneur Brent Bolthouse to channel midcentury artist and designer Ray Eames for the lounge’s new look. The property has naturally oiled woods, painted white brick and an overall neutral tone, also inspired by California surf culture. The midcentury décor is complemented by various seating enclaves that have custom leather sofas and upholstered club chairs. There is also a private dining room. Merging the interior and exterior, the lounge has a deck with ocean views, as well as a bar.
Meanwhile, the historic Hotel Figueroa has architectural detailing reminiscent of its Spanish roots. For the restoration, Studio Collective infused the circa-1926 property with new bespoke furnishings and artwork. The lobby has a new residential-style look along with a new indoor-outdoor restaurant. Revamped as an overgrown urban garden, the pool at the ground floor and a mezzanine bar are also included in the redesign, which will open later this year.
