Opened in February 2011 in Palm Springs, ” Saguaro Palm Springs ” is a small hotel with 245 rooms offering a superb outdoor swimming pool. But above all, the distinction of offering façade is declining nearly 14 tones of color for visual rendering also surprisingly refreshing. “They’re the color of wildflowers indigenous to the area,” said the architect, Peter Stamberg, of Stamberg Aferiat, the firm hired to remake the hotel.
Structurally, not much of the Holiday Inn at the corner of Palm Canyon and Sunrise Way has changed, but the lobby, which has a 10-foot ceiling and no windows, is now covered in wallpaper with oversize images of red bird of paradise flowers and an “architectural mountainscape” design, a colorful concept inspired by the Mexican architect Luis Barragán that is carried through to the rooms.
