April 11, 2018 – Today, the proposed new design for the Miramar Santa Monica was revealed to the public. The project will create a bold landmark for Downtown Santa Monica, with stunning contemporary architecture and magnificent new open spaces that both respect and celebrate the Miramar’s two local landmarks: the historic Palisades Building and the spectacular Moreton Bay Fig Tree. The new design embraces the historic tree, making it the true focal point of the project.
“We looked at elements of the Miramar such as its natural and cultural history and how it has changed over time to get the soul of the site. Our goal is that when you walk into it, you feel it is real and stable; that the landscape emerges from the site itself,” said Kathryn Gustafson, Founding Principal at GGN.
