Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs made a splash in the Southern California desert with its opening on November 17, reaching major milestones for the Kimpton brand and the City of Palm Springs.
The seven-storey, 153-room urban oasis features the city’s first and only rooftop pool, two restaurants and two bars, serene mountain and Coachella Valley views, and inspiring spaces for meetings & events.
A major anchor of the Downtown Palm Springs revitalisation project and the first ground-up, full-scale hotel built in the area in decades, Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs puts guests in the heart of it all.
The design of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs salutes the colourful mid-century heritage and modernism roots of Palm Springs, reinterpreted from a contemporary viewpoint. The structural design of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs draws upon Palm Springs’ distinctive qualities of light, landscape and mountain terrain.
Concrete blocks of the building’s exterior are punctuated with pop-out boxes and balconies to add dimension while perforated metal sunshading and filigree screening create the subtly transforming texture of shadow under the desert sun.
