Excerpt from Los Angeles Business Journal
The first phase of Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village’s multimillion-dollar transformation, the remodel of its three restaurants, was inspired by the tranquil elements of Southern California’s coast and the classic era of Old Hollywood glam. Coin & Candor, an all-new restaurant for the luxury hotel, creates a neighborhood gathering place with both indoor and outdoor space. Its design combines natural textures, bright colors and fresh tones with mid-century design.
Coin & Candor’s name pays homage to the humble beginnings and early rise to success of owner David Murdock, as does Prosperous Penny. Previously a lobby area, the space was converted to a lounge and serves as another gathering point, attracting both guests and locals alike. The hotel’s Japanese restaurant, Onyx, underwent a refresh with California influences as well. Shawmut Design and Construction partnered with Brooks + Scarpa Architects, BAMO, and EDG on the restaurant remodels, which the team completed in just over three months.
