TruexCullins Interiors to Design Renovation of Historic Sausalito Hotel

by TruexCullins, April 22, 2010

TruexCullins Interiors Studio has been hired by Terra Resort Group to design the renovations of the historic Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa located in Sausalito, California. The Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa is an iconic resort perched on the picturesque hillside of Sausalito overlooking the San Francisco Bay. The hotel is comprised of a wide array of buildings and room types, including the historic guestrooms of an 1885 Victorian Mansion; 21 cottage rooms and suites built along the Sausalito hillside and connected with brick walkways and stairs; and 31 contemporary rooms occupying an adjacent 4-story building.
The hotel has recently come under new ownership and is now being managed and operated by the Terra Resort Group, a team of hospitality professionals operating and developing a collection of dynamic hotels and resorts, including the highly acclaimed Hotel Terra in Jackson Hole, WY.  A few years ago,  TruexCullins Architects designed the Teton Mountain Lodge, another Terra Resort Group property.
The Casa Madrona is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a celebrated landmark for visitors and residents alike. A major interior renovation is poised to reposition the hotel as a premier 4-diamond resort, preserving the historic charm of the 125-year old mansion, while providing a new level of modern amenities and services.
The design being developed by Truexcullins Interiors introduces a singular language that integrates modern sensibilities while retaining key historic elements. The result will provide a consistent overall experience for guests that celebrates the individual moments that occur within a resort that has been a cherished part of the community for over a century.
Here are a few snaps of TC designers Kim Deetjen and Matt Bushey from a recent trip to Casa Madrona.
