SB Architects is the project architect for an extensive renovation of the iconic Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa in the heart of the storied Sonoma Valley wine region. The renovation includes sweeping changes to the arrival, landscape, signage and pedestrian circulation, and a complete re-design of the lobby, lobby bar, Michelin Star “Sante” restaurant, meeting facilities and Heritage Suites. Greater acoustic privacy, increased accessibility and improved technical infrastructure enhance the property behind the scenes. Working with the Sonoma County Landmarks Commission, the design team worked to align the historic resort with the Fairmont Hotel’s brand standards. The multi-million dollar renovation has received enthusiastic reviews.
