Beverly Hills, CA
PACE participated in a collaborative effort as a subconsultant to Gensler, for Design-Build of a rooftop pool and hotel entry fountain for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. This luxury hotel is located in one of the world’s most glamorous cities, set where Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevard meet. As you first arrive at this hotel, you’ll approach a beautiful three-tiered, 230-square-foot fountain at the center of the roundabout with multiple cascades, designed by PACE with custom fabricated metal basins with underwater lights and surrounded by natural landscape. On the 13th-floor rooftop lounge, PACE designed a 950-square foot zero-edge heated Myrtha stainless steel pool and a 150-square-foot spa, allowing a 360-degree view that overlooks the city. PACE also designed a unique 65-square foot, 13-foot high secret garden water wall, located in the Waldorf Astoria garden, complete with a roughened stone surface and a luminous light source at the bottom to enhance its natural visual effects.
