W Hotel, Beverly Hills CA
Marriot’s W Hotels brand is all about redefining the hotel experience for the jet set generation. As W Hotels expand around the world, Marriott is looking to create a bespoke experience at each location that brings together the best in music, fashion and design from the local area. Kevin Barry Fine Art’s work on the W Hotel West Beverly Hills in Los Angeles focused on adding high-end, artistic and youthful touches through hotel art that would make this W Hotel brand property the perfect embodiment of urban, upscale Los Angeles.

Metal was the medium of choice for this project in both the public spaces to the guest rooms. Select suites feature a dreamy metal headboard designed by our in-house graphics team and cut by waterjet from metal to create the piece’s intricate design that creates relaxing shadow play. The metal motif continues throughout the lobby and corridors through the placement of highly-customized metal screens, angled metal partitions, floor inlays and metal butterflies that flock the ceiling.
“The W Hotel West Beverly Hills is a property with a sleek, sophisticated design that required the use of unique metal applications. This was a highly-customized project where we worked with both in-house and external designers to create the perfect elevated feel for this one-of-a-kind hotel.”
