Gold Diggers, Los Angeles, USA

Dave Neupert / Wick Architecture & Design / Night Palm Design / LAND Design Studio

Featuring exposed painted brick, graphic wallpaper, bold colours, vintage end-cut wood tiles and artwork, Gold Digger’s guestrooms draw inspiration from the Hollywood punk scene of the late 70s and for a series of accommodations indebted to counterculture. Judges noted that: “despite the quirky nature of the building, the rooms are very tastefully composed”.
