Glamour. Bright lights. Red carpet. Big screen. All the elements of the movie industry have left a mark on the identity of Hollywood. These traits have been unmistakably represented in the architecture of the luxury, mixed-use development of the W Hollywood Hotel and Residences. At the famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine, this urban living, working and entertainment district is an icon for modern living and is the gateway to the Hollywood Historic District. In addition to the hotel and condominiums, the project includes street-level retail, an MTA transit plaza, a signature restaurant and bar, rooftop pools and a fitness facility.


The Vision

The glamour of Hollywood’s stars is represented through the famous characteristics and embellishments in this catalyst project that welcomes the dreamers into the magical world of Hollywood. Elements like the silver screen is re-interpreted as a crisp and clean glass façade. The red carpet invites visitors to come in and explore. And the lantern pieces spotlight the integrated signage, drawing attention to them.


The design team wanted to combine sustainability with the idea of new Hollywood glamour and glitz. It’s a forward-thinking development that speaks to its environmentally conscious guests and residents. The sustainable design strategy focused on site design, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. W Hollywood is one of the largest LEED-compliant properties in Hollywood, combining eco-conscious construction with stylish design, luxurious finishes, dramatic views, modern art and premium services.
