Residence Inn Santa Barbara Goleta Hotel Design Project
One of AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design’s most challenging – and rewarding – projects in recent memory, the Residence Inn by Marriott Santa Barbara Goleta hotel project was not only technically challenging, requiring an extensive network of concrete grade beams and piles to float the hotel over the poor soil conditions, but also creatively challenging, requiring culturally sensitive design to pay respect to the local Chumash people, on whose traditional land the hotel is located. Interior design expertise by SANDdesign.
Location of hotel architecture project: Santa Barbara, California
Scale of hotel architecture project: 128 rooms over three stories
