Stylish new look for the Grand Hyatt, San Francisco
San Francisco-based architectural practice, CCS Architecture, have designed the OneUP Restaurant & Lounge project. Completed in 2012, the luxury refurbishment has introduced clean, modern and international design to the Grand Hyatt hotel in San Francisco.
According to the designers: “OneUp at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco occupies a dumbbell-shaped mezzanine overlooking the hotel’s 30-foot-tall lobby. Accessed by a steel, glass, and wood staircase, the 4,100-square-foot venue wraps around both sides of twin elevator banks that are clad in eucalyptus wood boards in varying thickness. At one end is the main dining room, which includes a live-fire open kitchen reminiscent of many San Francisco restaurants. This is to create a strong connection between diners and the food, plus it dramatises the space. Wood shelves in front of a large window-wall are filled with cookbooks of regional cuisine, potted herbs, and a contemporary digital fire.
“At the opposite end is the bar and lounge. Like the dining room, the bar backs to a large window fronted by wood shelves that is the back bar which also is a design element to the street, signifying the place as a bar. Connecting and in-between the dining room and bar is a wine and liquor library, featuring an interactive touch screen menu display. Glass, wood and chrome cabinets fronting the eucalyptus-paneled walls of the elevator banks display wine and liquor from around the world.
“The hotel design includes – natural materials, warm colours and authentic textures lend an air of Northern California casual that plays against clean, modern, international design.”
