Santa Monica Proper Hotel, USA

Lobby & Public Spaces

Combining “memorable materials and fabulous attention to details” Santa Monica Proper Hotel’s second award of the night went to the project’s public spaces, which are “one powerful moment after another, carefully composed within a spectacular hotel,” according to judges. Kelly Wearstler’s design of the hotels’ public portion has created “spaces that stop guests in their tracks to pause and appreciate,” said another.
