Del Mar Marriott
Interested in bringing more revenue to the Del Mar Marriott, we were invited to re-vamp their pool deck, re-fresh their award-winning restaurant, Arterra, and to improve the hotel entrance while honoring the existing framework and materials. With a budget-conscience approach, the pool deck design expands the exterior bar area to create a variety of intimate configurations from day-time dining to an evening cocktail lounge simply by rearranging the furnishings. The new, functional wind screen masks the view of the freeway and frames the landscape in the distance. It incorporates a shade canopy which translates down the wall to the floor and ribbons across the pool deck to tie the elements together, terminating in a series of custom private cabana structures. Enhanced lighting, new furnishings, landscape design, adding private dining spaces, and reviving key elements in the bar and restaurant will encourage visitors to extend their experience at the hotel.
