In Los Angeles, Le Parc Suite Hotel has completed a renovation and redesign of its 154 suites, lobby, meeting space and corridors and added a new fitness center.
Inspired by the hotel’s location in the Design District of West Hollywood, the redesign features a curated collection of locally inspired original artwork.
Designed by Alison Andrus of waldrop+nichols studio, Le Parc Suite Hotel has been reimagined to evoke an exclusive art collector’s upscale metropolitan residence. The lobby chandelier has 100 acrylic disks in multiple finishes while the suites’ custom screen dividers have bronze geometric patterned frames.
Adjacent to the lobby, the Study Room, a place for coffee service and gathering, has blue lacquered walls and concrete floors with a multicolored wall covering on the ceiling illuminated by a black fringe chandelier. The hotel’s new corridors feature blue carpet that resembles an abstract painting.
Le Parc’s exterior murals along the front façade and rooftop tennis court are by local artist Charlie Edmiston. Inside, artist Scott Hile designed an 8-foot-by-20-foot “LOVE” mural behind the lobby’s reception desk. In each elevator landing and other public spaces, pop culture portraits by Srinjoy Gangopadhyay celebrate artists with a theme of utopia in a contemporary context. Portraits of David Bowie, Ray Charles, Freddie Mercury, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder are layered with a combination of spray paint and stenciling, collage, painterly mark making and graffiti writings. Two works by American artist Craig Alan can be found in Le Parc’s elevator cabs. Each floor-to-ceiling piece has a simple color palette of black, white and grays with pops of red and gold.
The new fitness center has 530 square feet of space for cardio, weightlifting, resistance training, yoga, stretching and a Peloton.
