AXIS Architecture + Design Crafts the Aloft El Segundo in Los Angeles
San Francisco-based AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design designed the Aloft El Segundo – Los Angeles Airport, the first of two hotels to open following the decision to divide the former 600-room Hacienda Hotel into separate properties. The Fairfield El Segundo is slated to debut later this month.
San Rafael, California-based Design Atelier provided additional interior design expertise during the three-year, $20-million renovation. The hotel now houses 246 loft-like guestrooms.
The lobby has been relocated to the opposite side of the property and redesigned to feature two levels based on the space’s heightened ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling windows wrap the multi-level space and offer a panoramic view of the pool deck, while the W XYZ bar is situated opposite the entrance.
