CRE_gold_awardLe Meridien

Location: 130 W Huntington Drive, Arcadia
Developer: Avanti Development
Contractor: Snyder Langston
Architect: AO

Arcadia’s first four-star hotel features modern and sophisticated Art Deco style and pays homage to city’s rich cultural heritage. The premium full-service hotel features 232 rooms and suites, a fine dining restaurant, bar lounge, and 14,000 square feet of high-design meeting and event spaces. The architecture and interior design take cues from the mid-century modern design aesthetic characteristic of Le Meridien’s brand. Born in Paris in the 1960s, the brand celebrates cultures around the world through chic signature programs and engaging experiences that elevate the destination. For Le Meridien Pasadena Arcadia, this manifests through a myriad of sophisticated touches and art installations that pay homage to the rich equestrian heritage of the city of Arcadia.

Two custom art installations – one facing the main street and one flanking the onsite boulevard – are inspired by the swish of a horse’s tail and the colorful peacock representing the city of Arcadia. The main street art wall installation features silver inlays coated in iridescent paint on an opaque charcoal background, while a bright accent piece replicating a peacock tail pattern provides a pop of color and brightness to this wall. The other installation recreates the same horse tail pattern over a transparent golden wall.
