Helen Woodward Animal Center Education Center

The Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe is building a new education center to share the joy of connecting with the many creatures that share our planet, from hissing cockroaches to alpacas and horses.


The $7.5 million Sharron MacDonald Humane Education Village will have 10,000 square feet of indoor space with areas for a variety of animals to live and 20,000 square feet of outdoor space that will include playgrounds and an area for children and adults to interact with the animals – llamas, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes, birds and insects.


Each of the six classrooms in the education center will have a different theme,  with the classrooms divided into either side of the building connected by open walkways. The Ocean Room, for example will have programs focusing on fish and sea life. Other rooms, such as the jungle and woodlands, will focus on animals specific to those parts of the planet.


The new center also will include two birthday party rooms, animal enclosures that are part of the children’s environment in the classrooms allowing them to bring the themes to life, a large kitchen, separate rest rooms for adults and children and storage areas for holiday decorations. A 2,700 square-foot playground for children aged 7 to 14 will be about pollinators and our smaller bees, butterflies and humming birds.

Mission Pacific Hotel

Mission Pacific Hotel is part of a 2.8 acre development in Oceanside, the biggest oceanfront development in San Diego County in more than 50 years, and counterpart to the Seabird Resort.


The hotel is a vibrant beachfront sanctuary with a laid-back spirit. Relaxed and undeniably Southern Californian, the 161 guest rooms – including 38 suites – feature soothing textures, gentle colors, cozy bedding, and gentle salt air. The hotel includes an expansive rooftop pool and jacuzzi, private cabanas and lounge seating, a 24-hour fitness center, library, and 13,000 square feet of function space all designed to take in the expansive and majestic ocean views.


On the culinary front, adventurous taste and joy-driven hospitality merge to create four distinct food and beverage experiences that range from surf-casual to upscale. These experiences include Oceanside’s first rooftop bar and Charlie’s, a decadent dessert bar in the transformed Graves House, the charming and historic beach cottage seen in the iconic film, “Top Gun.”


At the heart of the Mission Pacific Hotel vibe is a robust list of local experiences, infused with the laid-back Oceanside spirit including a unique “Skate School” program that pays homage to the beloved action sport scene via guided skateboard lessons and local skate-site tours. Guests can also take in vibrant artwork throughout the hotel, selected in partnership with the Oceanside Museum of Art.

The Seabird Resort

The Seabird Resort opened in 2021 and features architecture inspired by oceanfront estates, breathtaking ocean views, and integrates seamlessly with the surrounding community.


The resort is part of a 2.8 acre development near the Oceanside Pier, the biggest oceanfront development in San Diego county in more than half a century. Included in the design are 226 guest rooms and suites, an outdoor pool, sophisticated library, a restaurant and oceanfront bar with locally-farmed cuisine, a world-class spa, and nearly 20,000 square feet of meeting space.


Alongside iconic ocean views, the hotel’s design is inspired by the City of Oceanside’s rich history and natural environment. The hotel is integrated with the surrounding neighborhood and highly walkable. The interior design pulls from a mix of traditional and modern elements, inspired largely by the colors of the ocean, beach house style, natural textures, and nautical features. Comfort is a priority, flip-flops are a necessity, and fine dining doesn’t require fine attire.


The resort is locals-oriented and cultivates collaborations with San Diego county artists, companies, and vendors wherever possible. Immediately upon entering the resort, guests are met with 289 artworks curated by the Oceanside Museum of Art by a total of 123 Southern California artists. Private surf lessons are offered by resident experts and The Shore Room, the Seabird’s ocean-view bar, offers spirits distilled by small batch Oceanside-based distilleries and cold-pressed juices from the San Diego-based Suja Juice.


The Seabird contributes greatly to the San Diego county community, is a developmental feat more than 10 years in the making, and demonstrates top-of-the-line design and collaboration skill. The resort creates a timeless landmark, and takes full advantage of the breathtaking natural views.

Residence Inn Maui Wailea

The new hotel is located on a 6.37-acre land parcel and is one of the first new build Residence Inn Generation 9 properties in existence, accommodating extended stay travelers and those with families by offering studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom suites with separate living and sleeping areas. Amenities include on-site laundry, buffet and banquet rooms, barbeque areas, pools, spa and sports courts.


The project broke ground in July 2014 and had its grand opening in September 2016. Loosely translated, Wailea means ‘water play’ so it’s only fitting that the Marriott Wailea Residence Inn incorporates water as a distinguishing feature in their design and operation. Along with a ‘resort-style pool and spa’ Marriott’s new 200-room, four-story Wailea hotel features a fitness center, an outdoor sports court, a market and 1,800 square feet of meeting space.

Montage Healdsburg

Montage Healdsburg, part of a 258.5-acre development, is located at the North edge of Healdsburg in Sonoma County, California. Capturing the ideals of mid-century modernism to blur the lines between the interior and exterior, the 130 guest rooms and 25 residential villas offer expansive views of the surrounding mountain vineyards. Amenities include a restaurant, destination spa and conference facility in addition to the planned community park and public hiking trails. The adjoining residences are being developed concurrently to create a cohesive neighborhood which maximizes views and open space.


This project is unique for Delawie because it includes residential homes which are not typically in our scope.


The proposed project also includes 37-acres of land donated to Healdsburg for a Community Park, a Fire Sub-station, 14.3-acres donated for Affordable Housing, and hiking trails throughout the property for the public to enjoy.


The high quality Resort and Spa will include an excellent restaurant and an exceptional conference facility to be operated by a world class operator. The Resort will be LEED Certified.

Project details


Moxy by Marriott is a lifestyle-branded hotel at the convergence of the historic Gaslamp District and East Village of San Diego. The architecture embodies the soul of the neighborhood; a gesture of sculptural, modern, and urban. The building façade’s secondary louvered system and cross brace detail act as complementary architectural elements. The louvers, appearing to be positioned at random, serve as visual buffers for the guest room mechanical units.


Inside, the hotel is designed to be communal and inviting. Exposed concrete, piping and duct work will give the ground level an honest, open feel. Integral to the hotel brand; the public space will be separated into zones that shift from calm to energetic.


The cohesive focal point of the public spaces is a custom iconic and textured light installation resembling flowing water. The animated pixel waterfall appears to flow through the lobby and up into the guestroom courtyard, creating a shared experience between visitors and overnight guests.


The hotel will be more than just a place to crash for the night. It will be an avant-garde rec room, a hip hang out, and ultimately a place of convergence for San Diegans and visitors alike.

Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa

The Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa is a renovation of an existing resort, built in 1989, set within a 25-acre desert oasis in Paradise Valley overlooking Camelback Mountain. The renovated resort was designed as a “desert modern” retreat, inspired by midcentury modern architecture. The 201 guestrooms and suites, an increase of 31 keys, were configured in clusters of casita-inspired bungalows, including two new Presidential suites.


The Guest House is the central element of the resort, serving as a social gathering place for guests and locals. The architectural design includes floor-to-ceiling glass walls to highlight the unique and inviting indoor Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen restaurant and lounge spaces. The exterior’s expansive patio spaces encourage guests to sit and socialize around movable furniture and multiple fire elements.


The meeting and events building features 10,000 SF of indoor space and 36,000 SF of flexible outdoor space to accommodate large and small gatherings. The main pool, lined with private cabanas, links to the Turquoise Pool Bar. The building that houses the Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary is connected to the resort’s second pool, while the third pool is located in the secluded Retreat area.

San Diego Marriott Del Mar

Interested in bringing more revenue to the San Diego Marriott Del Mar, our firm was asked to revamp their pool deck, refresh their award-winning restaurant, Arterra, and to improve the hotel entrance while honoring the existing framework and materials. With a budget-conscience approach, the pool deck design expands the exterior bar area to create a variety of intimate configurations from day-time dining to an evening cocktail lounge simply by rearranging the furnishings. The new, functional wind screen masks the view of the freeway and frames the landscape in the distance. It incorporates a shade canopy which translates down the wall to the floor and ribbons across the pool deck to tie the elements together, terminating in a series of custom private cabana structures.

Spoleto Irvine

Delawie was retained by Spoleto, a Brazilian fast casual concept with over 400 locations, to design Spoleto Irvine, the first of several new locations planned for California. Focused on spreading Spoleto’s vision of “Culinary Freedom,” Delawie designed a modern 3,200 SF interior restaurant that allowed each guest to engage in creative culinary experiences. At the heart of Irvine’s Spoleto location—styled in warm woods with logo art and accents of color throughout—is the exhibition counter that invites patrons to watch as chefs cook their meals.


This modern design allows Spoleto, known for their fast pasta preparations and interactive dining platforms, to explode with excitement in this one-of-a-kind dining experience for all guests. The environment reflects the authentic character of the brand with colors and materials inspired by Italian venues with the addition of signature elements like the sauté pan chandelier to celebrate the Spoleto lifestyle. The brand’s commitment to the arts, inspired by Italy’s largest arts festival in their namesake city, is evident in the design of the environment through materials, seating, and artful merchandising areas. A 600 SF exterior dining patio enables dining guests to enjoy Southern California comfort with Spoleto’s lively spirit.

J Street Hospitality Office

The design for J Street Hospitality’s new office in San Diego’s East Village was precipitated by the requirement to include a commercial space on the ground level. This, coupled with the extremely high visibility of the site due to its neighbor, Petco Park, creates a blend of New York Deli meats San Diego contemporary office. The design complements the edgy and young professionals working at J Street Hospitality, from the materials to the amenities. Ping-pong anyone?


The office lies behind a large, enhanced wall that provides a hidden entry door, a nod to the speakeasy. Once through the office doorway, the space opens into a grand entry area with 30’-0” ceilings, exposed mechanical equipment, glass fronted offices and a shared communal space—masculine, upscale, yet industrial.


The new mezzanine, suspended above both the open office area and the deli, looks out onto 7th Avenue and Petco Park through the building’s large existing historic windows.  By strategically placing the mezzanine level offices and common areas to take advantage of the large windows, natural light was brought into the overall space, further engaging office staff with the energy of the outside. The Walnut meeting table doubles as a ping pong that is highly used by all.


The overall energy of the office is focused on creating a collaborative environment where all users have access to natural light, as well as being visually connected.

Destination RV Resort

The design for the Destination RV Resort draws its inspiration from the classic roadside architecture along U.S. Highway Route 66— structures that defined a generation of road trippers.

Upon arrival, the Resort’s main access promenade welcomes visitors into the site and leads them towards the stunning entry sequence that respects the existing view corridor while creating a place making space comprised of visual and noise mitigating elements between the neighboring highway and the site.


By aligning the various program structures along the northeast edge of the site, the buildings serve to create a gentle curtain from the highway. A staggered terrace area accentuates the sweeping views towards San Diego Bay and Imperial Beach. Guest check-in is located directly adjacent to the primary motor court drop-off area in an easily recognizable public space for increased operational efficiency.


Secondary site programming is protected by a large, sweeping retaining wall that allows each level of program space to be slightly elevated, creating framed views and private terraces. The stepped terrace terminates at the guest pool at ten feet of elevation, promoting dramatic views over the Resort and drawing the eye to iconic San Diego Bay.


Other site programming elements include an exterior BBQ area at the northwest corner of the site with grills, tables, and group seating areas positioned to provide guests with dramatic, framed views of the nature preserve and San Diego Bay.


On the southwest corner of the site, a dedicated tent area is designated for campers and RV visitors, as well as an on-site shower and restroom building.


All planned off-site improvements have been integrated into the overall design as well. The bikeway connection points at each corner of the site encourage visitors to experience the nature preserve and allow for continuous circulation between the Resort and other areas within the Chula Vista Master Plan. These improvements create a highly functional and enjoyable connection to the surrounding environment and planned future developments.


The Destination RV Resort is a site specific design response that incorporates natural features and emphasizes the site’s preeminent views that make the Chula Vista Bay Master Plan such an exciting development. The site’s architecture and modern amenities celebrate the Resort’s prominent location along San Diego Bay. The Resort will be an incredible resource for the future buildout, affording convention visitors an opportunity to stay/linger after their conference, while enjoying the natural resource opportunities. It remains true to the site—a compliment to the native habitat—and attracts visitors who frequent RV parks to be closer to nature.

Mission Hills Country Club


The reinvention of Mission Hills Country Club was inspired by the majestic Southern California desert landscape—borrowing the natural colors, textures and hues that evolve with each sunrise and sunset over the Santa Rosa Mountains of Coachella Valley.

Those hues, in turn, dictated many of Delawie’s choices for the designs materiality, with a palette of earth tones interspersed with moments of reds and golds. The stone flooring conjures a sense of place, mirroring the Valley’s granite and sands that are celebrated with each morning’s early light. The walnut walls are textural, selected as a nod to the wind-driven sand striations of the surrounding landscape.

The new bar design anchors the room and has an intricate, antique brass screen behind the bar with chic shelving on either side. The bar’s granite tone is that of the sunset at dusk, as seen reflecting off of the Club’s mountainous backdrop. The large 72” diameter chandelier is suspended above the bar (designed by Bover Lighting based in Barcelona, Spain), and is comprised of interlocking natural wood. The chandelier’s light bounces softly around the soffit, projecting an image reminiscent of an Epiphyllum cactus flower.


The Clubs Amenities include: Lobby, Men’s Locker Rooms, Fireplace Lounge, Private Dining Room, Bar, Casual Dining, Upscale dining and Banquet Facilities.

The Grill at the Lodge at Torrey Pines

Delawie was the architect in charge of re-imagining the expansive new patio for the Grill at the Lodge at Torrey Pines. Following a $2.5 million renovation, The Grill debuts its reinvigorated patio expansion overlooking the iconic Torrey Pines Golf Course, complete with five outdoor fire pit tables, an overhead wooden trellis, craftsman teak furniture that doubles the outside capacity and an alfresco lounge.


The project consisted of the expansion of The Grill, and complete interior and exterior renovation. New improvements feature an expanded kitchen area, new flooring and wall finishes, new HVAC system, as well as new high-end finishes throughout the restaurant. The exterior patio was completely reconstructed to include an expanded seating area with heavy timber trellises outfitted with heaters, light fixtures and fans, a 24-foot tall custom wood-burning clinker brick fireplace with built-in rotisserie oven and grill, clinker brick walls, and new hardscape throughout.


The main goal was to create a better dining experience with views of the golf course and the Pacific Ocean beyond. We needed to shelter guests from the wind and provide more heat, as it’s a cool space most of the time. The existing Torrey Pines provide shade on the west patio.

Delawie Office

Our firm’s new San Diego office embodies the design principles we strive to achieve through our work, drawing from our experience in designing high-performance work spaces for corporate, higher education and life science clients.


We moved from our office in Little Italy, where we had been for fifteen years, to a highly visible site in the burgeoning Bay Park area. The site housed an existing early 1960’s one-story concrete block building and a 2-story wood-framed building added in 1985. Both structures were intentionally exposed, revealing and celebrating their unique histories, from 30-year-old steel beams and concrete blocks, to ceiling tresses and flawed industrial flooring.


There is no hierarchical design for the placement of personnel, instead, designers are grouped together based upon their current project teaming. Common areas are incorporated to encourage employees’ social pursuits, including a kitchen, a large open space for lunch seminars and firm-wide meetings, and a complete locker room with showers. An outdoor deck extends the work space environment outdoors and accommodates many a happy hour.


The office exhibits a variety of materials, furniture, finishes and details. The red color and pinwheel emblem in the firm’s logo is evident from the guest entry sequence to the lobby and the workstation dividers.


The building employs such green strategies as skylights, LED lighting, operable windows for natural ventilation, and drought tolerant landscape material.  The project is seeking LEED Platinum certification, and the addition of a rooftop photovoltaic power station now offsets 60% of the building’s energy costs.

BioLegend Campus

BioLegend envisioned a campus-like environment that would foster a sense of collaboration and dedication to the biotech company’s mission to enable Legendary Discovery. They also wanted to build a sense of community, with uniquely positioned indoor and outdoor amenities worthy of attracting and retaining the best talent.


The 8-acre campus design includes a complete overhaul of three out of four older buildings along Terman Court. One demolished building was replaced by the main campus building with an iconic 70-foot tall atrium as its focal point. From the atrium, BioLegend employees access the upper floor labs, offices, break rooms and conference rooms. Delawie applied its understanding of the client’s process and workflow to form a building program that ultimately marries functional, flexible, and efficient lab space with inter-departmental collaboration. The placement of departments is deliberate and allows for productive workspaces –both creative office and private rooms for focused work.


A pedestrian bridge connects the atrium to the refurbished administrative and amenity building. The most sought after amenities, determined by their staff, include a fitness center with locker rooms, a kitchen, wellness bar, yoga rooms, game room, and other amenity spaces that will encourage more collaboration and relaxation in between work week demands. The 250,000 square feet of outdoor amenities is key to employee satisfaction, providing a place to relax or informally meet outside.


Forward thinking sustainable strategies were introduced, including copious amounts of natural lighting through large windows and the atrium structure. An expansive green roof visually masks the presence of a 500-person multi-purpose room built off of the main building.


A new seven-story, 700-space parking garage is tucked behind the new main building. The garage supports an extensive photovoltaic system and will provide electric car charging stations.


The landscape architectural details, designed by Schmidt Design Group, include green roofs and drought-resistant, native species. The green roofs filter and clean rainwater while insulating the roof from the sun’s heat. In addition, this campus is stormwater-savvy and captures and treats all on-site water.

Hotel del Coronado- Guestrooms and Conference Center

Considered one of the preeminent icons of San Diego, the Hotel del Coronado is a distinctive and historical landmark on the shores of Coronado Island. The design for the additional guestrooms and 17,000 square foot ballroom was created to be complimentary to the original Queen Anne Victorian building while blending in with the entire property. It was a delicate balance between the existing historic fabric on the property and the desire for a modern five star hotel.
