On Sunset Blvd the stars are ever glimmering in the sense that every location is steeped with stories that will resonate for the ages. But amongst the various shops and venues a foundation of seminal constellations orbit of institutional hedonism… Hotel culture from the Riot Hyatt to the lore of the Sunset Tower and of course the pioneer Chateau Marmont. The latest super nova to emerge is the Pendry Hotel West Hollywood, which boasts not only a concert venue and spa but also an illustrious and palatial residency.

Upon entering the checkered piazza you are greeted by an Anthony James sculpture, a linear reminder of the disco explosions which had long informed the spirit of the boulevard. It’s massive structure and presence as well juxtapose to the soft green and delicate cascading beaded velour curtains and the beginning of the the ongoing dichotomy between maximalist curvatures and linear expressions of modernism and deco. A hallmark of the beloved metal, marble, and glass amalgamation.

Occupying the once storied House of Blues, of course a concert venue is a must. Designed by EYRC Architects, a  potent feature of the property is in the way which the building interacts with the Sunset Strip. Working with the surrounding skyline, the exterior for the front facing space utilizes enormous LEDs to bounce back-and-forth allowing for visuals from surrounding angles while also creating a accessible community space via the 2 Wolfgang Puck restaurants.

Ospero accessible from the street offers up a casual coffee and bite with million dollar views while Puck’s newest fine dinning it spot Merois brings back elegance of dinning on the strip and the varying thoughts of luxuries Pucks brand has to offer. EYRC architect Steven Ehlrich says of the project, “the contemporary architecture captures the energy of Sunset Blvd. and offers superlative views of Los Angeles. Abundant terraces, landscaping, pools and amenities celebrate the Southern California indoor-outdoor dream.”
