Irvine Marriott

Irvine, California

Renovations of the lobby, restaurant, and bar areas implemented the Marriott Great Room concept that features meeting rooms, breakout rooms, anterooms and a business center. The Irvine Marriott’s design palette of soft gray and sand contrast with rich woods creating a dramatic backdrop for social interaction in the public areas. Use of different texture and shadow create the suggestion of movement in the rooms.

The hotel bar, with inviting sofas and cocktail cubbies, provides space to gather for private conversations and impromptu meetings. Designers incorporated inspiration from the nearby marina through the use of a metallic sculpture that mimics ship rigging in the bar area. The innovative use of nautical materials provided a solution to the challenge of dividing a large room into separate spaces.
