Case Study: L’Auberge del Mar
Reminiscent of a Normandy hotel, L’Auberge Del Mar attempts to set a new standard in coastal hospitality. Located on 5.2 acres in Northern San Diego County, L’Auberge guests can relax on the expansive deck, eat in two different restaurants, or stroll down a private path to the beach. “Relaxing by day and spirited by night” is the owners’ mantra, and the amenities and atmosphere support this philosophy.
The location, in the heart of Del Mar, adjoins a glorious beach lies within striking distance of Torrey Pines State Park. The owners wanted the superb environs to be integrated as fully as possible into the design elements of the hotel. Joseph Wong Design Associates (JWDA) incorporated a number of elements into the $25 million renovation, finished in 2009, that take full advantage of the setting.
