In a state of decay, the once proud Sunset Towers stood as a landmark that remembered the glorious past of the Sunset Strip. Leland Bryant’s masterwork was restored and adapted with the insertion of luxury suites and the addition of an adjacent restaurant and seven story parking structure. After a painstaking political and construction process, the new St. James’s Club project emerged as a new marker reflecting the ‘modern’ amenities of life in the last decades of the 20th century. The design solution attempted to translate the strong art deco spirit of Bryant’s original apartment project into creative responses that would address the conveniences expected in modern luxury hotels. The adjacent restaurant addition derived clues from the art deco tower and applied a low scale solution in order to respect the magnitude of the original as a historical structure.
