In California, the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort completed the renovation of its meeting and event spaces. Atwater Inc. Studio was involved in the renovation.

The design and architecture of Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort’s renovations were both inspired by Santa Barbara and the town’s coastal-chic atmosphere. Throughout the ballrooms, meeting spaces and boardrooms, the design team incorporated hammered rock tables, objects found from the beach, driftwood-inspired tables and blue-hued chairs. There are also ocean-inspired artworks. The color palette used throughout the spaces blends blues with neutral tones.

At the lobby level and third floor of the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort, there are refurbished meeting spaces ranging from meeting and conference rooms to private and public spaces.
