Hun Aw Studio Redesigns Hotel G in Downtown San Francisco

26 May, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Hun Aw Studio has completed its transformation of the 153-room Hotel G in downtown San Francisco. The New York design firm peeled back layers of the property’s various remodels throughout its 106-year history to reveal key architectural elements. “There is a richness and complexity to the building’s history that cannot be replicated, and we wanted to celebrate that,” designer Hun Aw said in a statement.



The restored Art Deco façade reflects a 1930s postcard of the building, while structural cross bracing on the exterior mezzanine level appears after remaining hidden for the past 60 years. In the lobby, original concrete ceilings and green and white hexagon tiles complement a pair of minimalistic brass reception desks and vintage furniture. Aw also sandblasted the main staircase in the guest corridor down to its original cast iron finish.



Guestrooms feature a mix of old and new with original hardwood and concrete flooring, hand-dyed woven rugs, refurbished Victorian settees, vintage floral wallpaper, and California-shaped pillows.
