THE ORCHID INN

THE ORCHID INN

AB design studio breathed life into a dull apartment, turning it into a lively boutique hotel that's light-filled and inviting. Every corner underwent careful remodeling to link guests with nature. Rooms and spaces were meticulously reconfigured, fostering a seamless connection with the natural surroundings.

The architect completed the site work, exterior renovations, interior architecture and worked closely with the Interior Designer on selecting appropriate materials and finishes throughout. The buildings’ exterior details were repainted to highlight the craftsman style. Throughout the interior, a soothing coastal décor features a sandy-white palette accented with navy blue and gold, spreading sunlight deep into the center of the building.
