Cambria Hotel

Hospitality // Landscape Architecture

This 127-unit hotel includes meeting rooms, a restaurant, small retail opportunities, and a street-side patio space in downtown Phoenix. The hotel will offer a unique rooftop lounge/bar with outdoor seating areas and a semi-private group area surrounding a fire pit. The rooftop experience includes landscape pockets with a variety of small trees and shrubs that will enhance the overall essence of overlooking the Phoenix skyline. The rooftop landscape areas will utilize a locally blended lightweight growing media. Landscape pockets located on the roof will make use of industry-standard deck assemblies that will include a combination of monolithic membranes, hydroflex sheeting, styrofoam insulation, and filtration/drainage systems. Unique site furnishings complement and reflect both the exterior architecture and the interior spaces. The overall design maximizes pedestrian shade on the adjacent street level sidewalks via both vegetative cover and custom designed awnings and structures.
