Portofino Hotel & Marina
Redondo Beach, CA
Presiding over the marina at King Harbor, this hotel boasts stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and breakwater. We updated the lobby bar to capitalize on the view through floor-to-ceiling windows, creating an elegant retreat for guests and locals alike.
We also gave all public and guest spaces an aesthetic update and tied the restaurant, which was across the street from the hotel, into the property through landscaping elements and clearly defined walkways. The biggest challenge was replacing the dock, which required approval from the Department of Fish and Game, Coastal Commission and the Army Corps of Engineers.
