Located in LA’s up-and-coming neighborhood Koreatown, The Line Hotel reinvents the idea of comfortable lodging with its raw design scheme. The 388-room unit is housed in the former Wilshire Plaza Hotel, a mid century building situated just three miles from Downtown, and six miles from Beverly Hills. The Line Hotel will accommodate three Roy Choi restaurants, a night club and a boutique.
Designer Sean Knibb explains the concept that stood at the basis of the overall decorating scheme: “Each guest room is made up of three boxes. We used wood in the entry, porcelain in the bathroom and concrete room for a simple, clean palate. The ash in the guest rooms compliments the stained plywood that we used in the lobby. We also designed the bed to face out for the best views and to maximize space, with a large desk that serves as the headboard.” How would you comment on the overall design of this hotel? Would you book a room with concrete walls?
