Award Entry

Hollywood to get new luxury hotel designed by HKS 

The new W Hollywood Hotel and Residences will be located at the world-famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine. This urban living, working and entertainment district will serve as an icon of modern living, style and sophistication by being the gateway to the Hollywood Historic District. The site will be home to a 300-room hotel, 144 luxury condominiums and over 40,000 sq ft of street-level retail. Additionally, the project will include an MTA transit plaza, an upscale signature restaurant and nationally recognised bar, spa, roof-top pool and fitness facility.

The elements of the movie industry that have so powerfully left a mark on the identity of the Hollywood community, and western society as a whole, will be unmistakably represented in the architecture of the new luxury, mixed-use development. Elements like the silver screen, re-interpreted as a crisp and clean glass façade, will open and reveal itself as the gateway to Hollywood. Through the clear and sophisticated glass, guests will be able to glimpse the grandiose of what they are about to discover beyond. The red carpet invites you to come in and explore the intimacy of the glamorous world of the Hollywood movie star.

Roof top terraces for public and private functions are located throughout the project, giving a hint of the behind-the-scenes activity to which few people have access. The beauty of the seventh art involves your complete and undivided attention with only a small glimpse of reality at the end. This beauty is shared through the public spaces that are completely surrounded by the art and beauty of architecture as you come in and experience a piece of this Hollywood dream.

With upscale shopping, dining and entertainment, the W Hollywood Hotel and Residences will offer hotel guests and condominium owners alike the opportunity to capture the essence of Hollywood glamour and glitz.
