Alila Marea Beach Resort is a newly-built luxury oceanfront hotel situated along Southern California coastal bluffs and overlooking the sunny beaches of Encinitas, Calif. The resort is designed by San Diego-based Joseph Wong Design Associates. The GlasPro team partnered with contract glazing firm Division 8 Inc. to deliver on the architect’s vision to allow for a seamless blend between building and the natural landscape.
GlasPro created a white glass canopy over the hotel entranceway creating an arrival experience evoking a sense of discovery. The canopy consists of twelve pieces of 10.0mm tempered and laminated glass with two custom white SGP interlayers.
GlasPro made 44 pieces of 6.0mm monolithic, tempered, warm gray GlasPro spandrel glass ranging in size from 44” wide by 18” high to 71 3/8” wide by 17” high for the building’s exterior. The combination of vertical glass panels and canopy blends well with the rhythm of the building’s changing planes and roof elevations.
