The thirteen room boutique hotel in Laguna Beach California, Seven4one, was recently renovated and remodeled by contemporary architect firm Horst Architects. The project reflects a forward-looking, contemporary design aesthetic while at the same time making a connection to the Laguna Beach cottages through its materials and two-story exterior green wall. The material of recycled wood found on the exterior of the hotel has a weathered look to it, even showing worm holes. The other material of corten steel has an earthly quality to it, which channels the beautiful land and attitude of Laguna Beach residents. We think this is definitely a must-visit!
