New Live Webcam Shows Progress at San Gabriel Sheraton Hotel Site


We’ve been talking about our work on the San Gabriel Sheraton for some time now, and for good reason: it’s one of the largest and most high-profile projects we’re working on! From concept drawings to the ground breaking ceremony, Kollin Altomare Architects has been an integral part of the team that is bringing this vision to life. The San Gabriel Sheraton is one of several new buildings that will form the redeveloped Valley Corridor area, and we are excited to see it all come together.

Even though completion is still some time away, you can now check up on construction progress anytime from your computer or mobile device by clicking here. These live cameras broadcast from the construction site 24 hours a day, giving visitors a true insider’s view into what it takes to build a landmark hotel. The website also features time-lapse video of construction progress from groundbreaking to current status, as well as high-resolution still photos and helicopter aerial views.

Thankful for Completed Projects! – California Pizza Kitchen, Santa Ana, CA


Kollin Altomare Architects has been working with California Pizza Kitchen for more than two years. Since our relationship began, we have been designing remodels and new stores for this innovative pizza brand all over California, as well as stores in Arizona and Hawaii.


Our latest completed project with CPK is a remodel of their restaurant at the Westfield Mainplace  in Santa Ana, CA. The updated design features a wood and metal façade with new signs that reflect current CPK branding.


The outdoor patio has been remodeled as well, and fits right in with the new, modern design. We are proud to show off photos of our most recent completed project! Stay tuned to this space for more completed projects very soon.


KAA Teams up with Make-A-Wish LA

As much as we love working on our huge hospitality and commercial projects (and we do!), it is also very important to us at Kollin Altomare Architects to do charitable work that positively impacts our community. One of our current projects is a collaboration with Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles to design a fanciful Wish Room that will help bring joy to exceptional children battling terminal illness. Take a look at some concept boards, and we will be sure to update you all as progress continues!

Major Hotel Renovation Takes KAA to East Coast

The holiday season is upon us once again, and here at Kollin Altomare Architects, it really is the most wonderful time of the year! We’re as busy as ever, so happy to see (and share) photos of our recently completed work, and eagerly anticipating new projects on the horizon.


One of our biggest new projects is a comprehensive remodel of the Washington Marriott Georgetown hotel in Washington, D.C. As the architect of record, KAA is working with Whitespace Interiors and the Getty’s Group to design the hotel’s public spaces, including the lobby, ballrooms, meeting rooms and fitness center. We will also contribute the design for the hotel’s M-Club bar and club lounge.

As a part of this huge project, we will also provide designs for the renovation of 470 guestrooms, as well as the guestroom corridors, exterior façade redesign, and building enhancement and branding. We are excited to begin this important project and can’t wait to share progress reports with you all along the way!
