La Bahia Hotel / Currently in schematic design, this project aims to develop a new four-star, 165-room hotel. Located on the site of the historic 1926 Casa del Rey Apartments, the project interprets and expresses the original Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in a present day 'California revival' approach to design. Working closely with Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, JLJA developed a landscape design that weaves together a sequence of Mediterranean-inspired outdoor courtyards and patios that embraces the project’s historical and cultural landscape and creates a memorable experience unique to the coastal Santa Cruz region. Amenities include a porte-cochère, podium-level pool and outdoor lounge overlooking the ocean, ballroom and pre-function space, outdoor dining, green roof, and private and group decks with bocce court, fire pits, and seating. The Mediterranean-focused landscape will integrate sustainable design principles, reduce energy and water consumption, and efficiently manage stormwater.
