The time lapse video you see here shows the faÃ§ade transformation of the La Quinta San Antonio Downtown, which featured the Spanish Mission architectural style characteristic of older La Quinta Inn and Suites properties, into La Quintas new Del Sol prototype. The Del Sol palette includes large format tile in corten finish (LFT), metal roof cornice with accent lighting at LFT, and a Butterfly porte cochere. For this location, Epstein architects were responsible for removing the central arched roofline, false balcony railings and EIFS surface decoration and, in turn, creating a clean rectilinear faÃ§ade. Additionally, the LFT, new signage and an illuminated roof cornice highlight the building entry, contrasting with the quiet grey color scheme of the faÃ§ade.
