Moxy By Marriott

San Diego, California


51,970 SF

Moxy by Marriott is a lifestyle-branded hotel at the convergence of the historic Gaslamp District and East Village of San Diego. The architecture embodies the soul of the neighborhood; a gesture of sculptural, modern, and urban. The building façade’s secondary louvered system and cross brace detail act as complementary architectural elements. The louvers, appearing to be positioned at random, serve as visual buffers for the guest room mechanical units.

Inside, the hotel is designed to be communal and inviting. Exposed concrete, piping and duct work will give the ground level an honest, open feel. Integral to the hotel brand; the public space will be separated into zones that shift from calm to energetic.

The cohesive focal point of the public spaces is a custom iconic and textured light installation resembling flowing water. The animated pixel waterfall appears to flow through the lobby and up into the guestroom courtyard, creating a shared experience between visitors and overnight guests.

The hotel will be more than just a place to crash for the night. It will be an avant-garde rec room, a hip hang out, and ultimately a place of convergence for San Diegans and visitors alike.
