Carlton Hotel


Studio Design Group


JW Design & Construction


Atascadero, CA

For years, the Carlton remained a dilapidated 2 story URM in old town Atascadero and now the hotel has been restored beyond its original grandeur with several restaurants, a sushi and wine bar, a bakery and gift shop. The roof structure is constructed of open web steel joists over a composite deck design using a mat foundation; and by incorporating the two remaining facades, its historical significance to the city is preserved. The commercial area is located on the ground floor, while the upper levels contain guest rooms encompassing an interior 2-story courtyard that is open to the sky.
