Millennium Biltmore Hotel
Restoration of the historic Biltmore Bowl was undertaken to re-create the grandeur of this famous ballroom. Having hosted the Academy Awards and other galas, the 800 person ballroom was completely gutted and the floor level modified. A meticulous interiors program, including archival research, Cultural Affairs approvals, and studies of original details was part of the design effort to establish the Biltmore Bowl as a pre-eminant venue in downtown Los Angeles.
A fast track construction effort over 6 months enabled the hotel to book events in advance with minimal disruption to hotel operations. The renovation included elevators, life-safety provisions, and state of the art audio-visual technology.
