FOUR SEASONS HOTEL WESTLAKE VILLAGE

Location: 2 Dole Dr., Westlake Village

Contractor: Shawmut Design and Construction

Architect: Brooks + Scarpa; EDG Design; BAMO

The first phase of Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village’s multimillion-dollar transformation, the remodel of its three restaurants, was inspired by the tranquil elements of Southern California’s coast and the classic era of Old Hollywood glam. Coin & Candor, an all-new restaurant for the luxury hotel, creates a neighborhood gathering place with both indoor and outdoor space. Its design combines natural textures, bright colors and fresh tones with mid-century design.

Coin & Candor’s name pays homage to the humble beginnings and early rise to success of owner David Murdock, as does Prosperous Penny. Previously a lobby area, the space was converted to a lounge and serves as another gathering point, attracting both guests and locals alike. The hotel’s Japanese restaurant, Onyx, underwent a refresh with California influences as well. Shawmut Design and Construction partnered with Brooks + Scarpa Architects, BAMO, and EDG on the restaurant remodels, which the team completed in just over three months.

The Santa Monica Proper Hotel combines the adaptive reuse of a designated Landmark Building with a new contemporary addition flanked by curvaceous forms of concrete and glass. The Landmark Building built in 1928 was originally designed as a medical building and converted into commercial office space in the 1950s. Currently, it has been rehabilitated and combined with a contemporary addition to become a luxury hotel including street-level retail and restaurants.
