Studio Tack melds art deco and wabi-sabi aesthetic at Tilden Hotel

Brooklyn design firm Studio Tack has revived an art-deco landmark in San Francisco's emerging Tenderloin district, creating the art-forward Tilden Hotel.

Studio Tack looked to minimalism and a modernist palette during the wall-to-wall revamp of the historic building.

In the lobby, tufted velvet Harvey Projer Sofas serve as the focal point within an airy, white-washed space. Allusions to Northern California's Spanish mission revival architecture are seen in the prominent arches and high ceilings.

Studio Tack provided accents of warmth and tranquillity through the custom cherry wood reception desk and wall panelling, and simple teak furnishings crafted by Oakland-based designer Christopher Naefke.

Cues to nature extend through a hanging library of watercolour paintings by Jenny Kiker, which feature plants indigenous to the Bay Area. Contributing to the lobby's ambience is a digital art installation by San Francisco-based Daylighted, an online marketplace that enables rotating art displays on a digital canvas.

But The Tilden's embracing of art is not limited to its walls. Through the Tilden Art Committee, the hotel hosts bi-monthly Art Tuesday receptions that spotlight one local artist and their work for eight weeks. All proceeds go straight to the artist, and guests have the opportunity to interact with Tenderloin locals during this free, open-to-the-public event.

Studio Tack has turned several run-down properties into boutique accommodation. An hour north of San Francisco, the studio refreshed a motel to become The Sandman hotel.

The team has also overhauled mid-century buildings in Wyoming and Upstate New York to create upscale retreats.
