AKA Beverly Hills has partnered with innovative designers to provide a truly luxurious experience in the heart of Beverly Hills. The sophisticated yet minimalistic aesthetic is complemented by a warm and genuine atmosphere. The design of AKA Beverly Hills is artful, while also in tune with the relaxed vibe for which Southern California is known for. Their sleek Beverly Hills residences feature custom-designed contemporary furnishings, fireplaces, and private balconies from which to take in views of Griffith Park and the iconic Hollywood sign. When designing AKA Beverly Hills, Koning Eizenberg incorporated touches with the environment in mind. The arrival sequence was completely redesigned as a shared surface for both cars and pedestrians in order to reduce the impact of cars and enhance the pedestrian experience. This area also features innovative Living Walls designed by Pamela Burton & Co with plantings to soften the threshold between interior and exterior, while requiring minimal irrigation. The bold living walls contain 3,300 living and growing plants in over 200 modules. The pattern is organic and free flowing, adding color, shape and texture, making the entrance literally come to life.
When it comes to dining, AKA joined forces with the iconic restaurant, Spago, to provide a true fine dining in-suite experience to residents. Each AKA suite includes an exclusive menu featuring specialty dishes from Wolfgang Puck’s legendary flagship restaurant, in addition to a rotating list of daily specialty entrees created by the master chef, that residents can enjoy in the comfort of their own fully-equipped kitchen.
One of AKA Beverly Hill’s exquisite privileges is A.terrace, AKA’s private, residents-only terrace lounge, designed by internationally recognised Pamela Burton & Company Landscape Architects, in conjunction with Oculus Light Studio. AKA residents can sunbathe during the day and lounge by the cosy outdoor fire pits with a cocktail in the evening, while taking in magnificent views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills. The expansive terrace measures 5,000 square feet.
Overall, AKA Beverly Hills is the ideal accommodation option to choose when travelling to Los Angeles. Either for a long or a short stay, you’ll get your money’s worth at AKA’s luxury serviced residences and get to live like a king/queen while you’re there!
