HBA partners with Pebble Beach Resorts to lead multi-property renovation and property extension
Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the global leader in hospitality interior design, has unveiled plans for its redesign of Pebble Beach Resorts, one of the most iconic golf properties in the world. HBA has been tapped as the lead interior design firm behind the renovation project, coinciding with the Pebble Beach centennial in 2019.
HBA’s scope of the project includes guest room renovations of The Lodge at Pebble Beach and The Inn at Spanish Bay, along with the design of Fairway One, a new addition to The Lodge, which opened in August 2017. While drawing inspiration from the legacy and rich tradition of Pebble Beach, HBA has created a refreshed, timeless design aesthetic for the property, while infusing thoughtful nods to its rich heritage.
“The Pebble Beach team has entrusted HBA with creating a new look and feel for the legendary property that will carry the legacy of this historic brand through its next chapter. We have paid a tremendous amount of time and effort to carefully and thoughtfully create a design aesthetic that speaks to the rich traditions of Pebble Beach, while incorporating modern touches that will elevate its timeless design for the next hundred years and beyond,” said HBA Partner Miguel Baeza. “The legacy of Pebble Beach Resorts is simply unparalleled; to reimagine a property of this magnitude and create a destination for the next 100 years is an honour for myself and my team at HBA.”
“As Pebble Beach nears its centennial, HBA’s partnership with the resort focused on a new approach to a signature design aesthetic. The collection of Pebble Beach Resorts properties is unrivalled, and signature design elements celebrate each property’s individuality,” said HBA Senior Designer Jacob Royster. “Fairway One is a distinct part of this transformation, adding to the property’s legacy and we’re thrilled to have taken part in shaping this next chapter.”
Fairway One was unveiled in August 2017, and subsequent phases of The Lodge and The Inn guest room renovations are slated for completion in 2019, coinciding with the property’s centennial along with its hosting of the 2019 U.S. Open Championship.
A distinctive addition to The Lodge at Pebble Beach, Fairway One adds 38 guest rooms, including 30 guest rooms in three two-story buildings and eight guest rooms in two four-bedroom golf cottages along the first fairway of the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links. The Fairway One complex also includes a meeting facility, anchored by a 2,500-square-foot meeting room.
Located along the left side of the first fairway, Fairway One offers an enhanced guest room experience with additional privacy, oversized accommodations and spectacular ocean, garden, and golf course views. The cottages were designed with a uniformly white architectural palette made up of decorative trusses and mouldings, contrasted by an authentic stacked stone fireplace and rich wood millwork, evoking an elegant beachside cottage. The designers utilised a soft neutral palette with rich earth tones and subtle infusions of classic patterns and details throughout the interior surfaces to create a soothing refuge. Oversized furnishings were grouped to welcome intimate gatherings or large events.
The Fairway One complex also includes the addition of a meeting facility. Prominently situated along the arrival court, the meeting facility offers venues for a wide array of special events. The centrepiece of the facility is the 2,500-square-foot Fairway One Room with a capacity of 225, featuring floor-to-ceiling views of the first fairway and the first green beyond. HBA designers have employed natural materials and timeless design details to create meeting spaces that lend to an obvious sense of place, while maintaining a modesty that doesn’t overpower the events within. Local art, natural materials and hues, and tactile finishes are used throughout the facility to subtly reflect the character of Pebble Beach.
The Lodge at Pebble Beach and The Inn at Spanish Bay
All existing guest accommodations at The Lodge and The Inn at Spanish Bay are being renovated inside and out, with a new design approach for the interiors by HBA that refreshes the traditional look and feel that is Pebble Beach, while honouring its historic legacy as the country’s premiere golf resort and giving nod to its history-making future.
The renovation of The Lodge includes 161 guest rooms, some ocean front, and corridors. To create a timeless design experience that outlasts the century, HBA designers focused on fine detailing, thoughtful touches, and neutral hues that lend an inherently peaceful vibe and emphasise the drama of the serene setting. HBA’s use of classic finishes and familiar patterns gives an air of richness and sophistication.
HBA designers enhanced one of The Lodge room’s key elements, the fireplace, by adding a monumental mantel to make it a focal point. They are also adding a built-in honour bar and a pocket door between the dressing and bathroom spaces to create a more open layout. The Lodge’s guest room furniture embodies relaxed elegance with oversized pieces tailored in neutral hues and incorporating patterns like plaids and stripes that are structured and geometric. Bathrooms showcase classic white marble, rich walnut vanities, and configurable shower systems. The purity and freshness of the room’s largely white painted surfaces are complemented by rich brown and black walnut finishes—all of which are be enhanced by the natural light filtering through the increased window openings and adjustable louvered panels along the entire window wall.
The Inn at Spanish Bay’s guest rooms embody a more contemporary, coastal California design aesthetic and feature greatly enhanced and reconfigured window walls that allow guests to take advantage of expansive views of the ocean, Del Monte Forest and The Links at Spanish Bay.
Illuminate, HBA’s lighting consultancy, worked hand-in-hand with HBA designers to create a tailored lighting program that complements the interior design, while enhancing the overall guest experience through the use of light.
