The Los Angeles neighbourhood of West Adams might not have the name recognition as other areas of the city, but the recently opened Alsace LA hotel is adding to the district’s already significant standing. Known for its historic architecture and for being one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Los Angeles, West Adams also boasts a thriving dining scene, a host of unique retail destinations, and is also home to a blossoming art and music scene.

Against this vibrant and energetic backdrop, the 48-room Alsace LA hotel possesses all the hallmarks of a soon-to-be cherished fixture. Developed by CIM Group, the purpose-built hotel was designed by architects NMDA Group, with interiors by Home Studios. Inspired by the gestural curves of the Bauhaus (opens in new tab), white oak floors and ceilings are muddled with terracotta plaster, fluted textures, warm wood accents and vintage and custom-designed furniture to create an evocative and sensual atmosphere that captures the eclectic essence of Los Angeles.

Guests first enter through a Mediterranean-style portico, where a verdant interior courtyard allows natural light to filter through each of the hotel’s three floors. Guest rooms each boast handcrafted details, with larger rooms accompanied by balconies or terraces, a custom-designed dining table and a bespoke pull-out couch.

Home Studios was responsible for designing many of the in-room elements, including the upholstered headboard panels, the rattan and wood wardrobes and sculptural brass hooks that together transport guests away to another world.

Home Studios’ residential-style approach to the interior design continues downstairs in the lobby, where a tile mural, produced in collaboration with local artist Lukas Geronimas Giniotis, draws on themes of ancient mosaic art with its figures in repose and abstracted landscape of fauna and classic architecture. Each of the artist’s tile motifs hint at the use of space throughout the hotel’s public spaces: divers appear near the exit to the pool, while figures play near the gym.
