The Jack Hotel

A magnetic new boutique hotel in downtown Oakland, The Jack is a reimagined existing hotel property just blocks from bayside Jack London Square. By focusing on new opportunities for retail, restaurants, a pool deck, and bars, we create a vibrant new epicenter for the burgeoning young professional class flocking to Oakland’s quickly gentrifying historic core. Our design focus was to preserve a grandfathered sign pylon by unifying its design with an existing decorative eave, emphasized by bright colors to architecturally announce the natural entrance and the significance of the new Jack Hotel.
