Casa Madrona Hotel Renovation and Addition

Safdie Rabines Architects provided full architectural design services for the 8,130 sf renovation and addition to the historic Casa Madrona Hotel and Spa in Sausalito, CA. Situated on a lush hillside, Casa Madrona enjoys an uninterrupted wide angle view of Richardson Bay and the San Francisco skyline, while providing a high level of privacy and security to its guests The project included the renovation of the three-story William G. Barrett House, a nationally registered historic Victorian mansion, into 11 luxury guest rooms, including the 3,200 sf “Alexandrite Suite”. The suite includes a large master suite, office, gym, living and sitting room, an entertaining kitchen and dining area, and large outdoor entertaining terrace. By creating seamless outdoor living spaces Safdie Rabines produced a design that takes advantage of the Hotel’s views and climate while increasing the total usable space. An addition to the adjacent Villa Madrona building created the “Junto Room,” a multi-function event facility including a private meeting room with state of the art audio-visual amenities, a full-sized catering kitchen, and a large wrap around ocean view terrace. The exquisite upscale design of the interiors of the project employ modern details and interiors that complement, yet create a distinct contrast to the historical exterior and preserved period detailing. Steel blues, bright whites, and warm wood tones within the facility’s design allude to the Hotel’s nautical environment, creating a ‘boat-like’ atmosphere.
