The Padre Hotel Bakersfield, CA
  • Project Manager: Byron Nobis

Scope of work: Gold Coast Design was responsible for a major interior renovation of the historic 8-story Padre Hotel originally built in 1929. We demoed and rebuilt the entire building interior, leaving only the exterior shell. We replaced all MEP systems, interior walls and finishes to create a boutique hotel with 112 guestrooms, a fine dining restaurant, cafe, nightclub, three full bars, two full kitchens and five conference rooms. Scope included structural upgrades necessary to convert a rooftop into a public space. The Padre Hotel was awarded the “Boutique Hotel of the Year” award and has received numerous acclaims for design and innovation.

The project was collaborated with Brett Miller and acclaimed architect/designer Graham Downes for whom we terribly miss after his untimely passing.
