Located across the street from the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Grand LA is a $1-billion mixed-use complex from famed architect Frank Gehry.
Anchoring the open plaza is Conrad Los Angeles, a contemporary luxury hotel with 305 modern rooms, meeting spaces, and hotel spa.
Featured in designing light, the hotel features a valet area with varying ceiling heights of 10 to 50 feet. Lighting designer KGM placed 4-inch DMF downlights behind columns to prevent aiming towards drivers’ eyes. DMF downlights arranged in a constellation pattern leading guests past the hotel entrance to the lobby for the residential tower.
