CUT at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel
Beverly Hills, CA
Richard Meier & Partners
Designed for Wolfgang Puck's CUT Steakhouse, this $4.5 million renovation within an existing hotel is designed to take advantage of the existing building shell, incorporating a semicircular geometry, fifteen foot ceilings and generous use of daylight. Finish materials included water-stained European ash paneling, golden-toned quartered white oak flooring, acid-etched glass, crystal clear glass and stainless steel accents within the 7,200 sq. ft. of space. With almost no staging area and a very demanding design, the project’s greatest challenges included working without disturbing the valued guests of this premier luxury hotel, while giving careful attention to precision and detail.
