An outdoor living room anchors the roof deck we updated for the Residences at the W Hollywood hotel. Our design restored direct views of the Hollywood sign, the iconic Capitol Records building, and numerous other Hollywood landmarks.

To make a grand impact in a limited space, we added a custom-built canopy to float above the new living room. During the day, dappled sunlight filters through the holes in the lattice; in the evening, light and shadow play against the patterned aluminum, making it a focal point of the rooftop. Beneath the canopy, a warming fireplace, comfortable seating, and a fully functional outdoor prep kitchen invite residents to linger.
On the adjacent pool deck, an extra-long ipe platform daybed traces a sinuous path, providing a soft contrast with the rectangular pool. The accompanying fire pit echoes the curve of the platform, making it just as comfortable on chilly evenings as on sunny afternoons.

Ipe paneling on the bar, the fa├žade of the renovated gym, and the columns supporting the rooftop billboard unify the entire space. Additional furniture, also constructed out of ipe, can be moved freely to create cozy seating areas of any size and shape. Lush landscaping creates a textured and layered environment throughout.
