Atelier Ace, teamed up with Studio Shamshiri, based in Los Angeles, to change a memorable New Orleans structure into Maison De La Luz, a boutique hotel with 67 rooms.

The hotel was selected in the Hotel Conversion and Bar Club or Lounge classifications at the current year’s AHEAD Americas hospitality awards.

Maison De La Luz offers visitors an extravagant encounter that references the history and folklore of New Orleans.

Studio Shamshiri’s vision for the hotel filled its common areas with elements and works of art that draw on New Orleans’ multicultural legacy.

The 67 rooms were planned with a more settled, calmer mood than the eclectic common areas, so as to offer a relief from New Orleans’ chaotic streets.
