Members of the design community enjoyed a private tour, hosted by the Southern California Neoclassicists, of the newly restored NoMad Hotel, previously the historic Bank of Italy building. The tour was kicked off by Karen Filippe of architecture firm KFA who lead the restoration of the former bank lobby into the restaurant and bar as well as converting the rooftop into a private pool and event space.
Architectural enthusiasts and classical historians such as Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, Andrew Tullis of Harrison Design and John Margolis of KAA Design also toured a guest suite where references from 17th and 18th century were combined with modern influences to create the hotel’s French elegant interiors led by designer Jacques Garcia.
The conversation continued at the rooftop pool just as the sun was setting, allowing guests to enjoy the beautiful California sunset with panoramic views of Downtown Los Angeles as its backdrop. The event concluded at the hotel’s Italian inspired cafe that transitions into a lounge bar where guests enjoyed cocktails while mingling with new design friends.
