Restored Bank Hotels

The NoMad Los Angeles Hotel Takes Inspiration From the Building's Former Life

— February 2, 2018 — Art & Design
Designed by French architect Jacques Garcia, the NoMad Los Angeles hotel finds a home in an old ornate bank. Set in the old Giannini Place, in Los Angeles, this new NoMad location pairs intricate ceilings, large columns and stunning marble flooring with floral furnishings and vibrant planting. The original bank design was completed in 1922 by Morgan, Walls & Clements, and was designed to be a 12-storey neoclassical building. Jacques Garcia was the modern architect tasked with transforming the building into a hotel and did an amazing job in adapting the space into a 241-bedroom hotel complete with restaurant, bar, library, cafe and rooftop pool.

Garcia attempted to preserve the original features of the bank in the NoMad Los Angeles hotel. Large arches, marble flooring and decorative features were all kept in original states and used as a starting point for new additions. The lobby restaurant is one the best examples of this as the coffered ceiling and square pilaster columns were paired with a rich color scheme and custom designed furniture. The bedrooms took inspiration from the ornate ceiling work in the lobby, and the colors used in the rooms mirror the gold and blue tones seen in the lobby.
