Alila Marea Beach Resort
Located on the Pacific Ocean, this project is a new build with an on-site spa, restaurant & coffee shop, lobby, lounge, and 130 guestrooms. Nature and all things organic were our inspiration for this project from the large-scale pattern on the lobby floor, the monumental stair, the hand-carved reception desk to the smallest wrapped natural rope detail on the guest room chairs. Encinitas is especially rough and beautiful with the powerful Pacific Ocean and wild coastline that all inspired the interior design. The energy, the colors of the ocean and dunes all fed into the decisions made about finishes, furniture and palettes thru-out the hotel. A few of our favorite design elements are the custom patterned concrete floor in the lobby that was inspired by organic shapes in the ocean and the custom carpet pattern in the ballroom was inspired by the giant kelp forests. You may not notice either interpretation at first glance—as these patterns are done on a large scale but as you look closer it becomes clear and is a nice surprise.
Our works include interior design, branding and brand development.
