William Penn Apartments

Renovation and restoration of historic 6 story brick building on 8th Street in Los Angeles. Formerly the William Penn Hotel, the building’s ground floor is to be retail paired with generous public spaces in the ground floor lobby and 5 stories of micro apartments above. The historic 1914 façade has been restored with concrete formwork and custom made steel frame windows and the interior design proposes a contemporary reinterpretation of the whimsical style eclecticism of early 20th century California, with color and exotic details setting the mood through new light fixtures, chandeliers, custom designed furniture, and a complete restoration of the historic walls and moldings.
