The Coolest Pool in LA Gets a Refresh from Judy Kameon and Geoff McFetridge

Los Angeles-Art Inspection

Not too long ago, we decided to have a little work done on our iconic pool deck at The Standard, Hollywood—nothing drastic, really, just a bit of freshening up. If you’ve ever spent time at The Standard, Hollywood then you know: the pool is a showstopper—a bubble of blissful California vibes from the wavy mid-century balconies to the blue astroturf under foot. Of course, it doesn’t take much to freshen up a classic, so it was all about the details. To get them just so, we decided to keep it in the family—The Standard Family—by bringing in two quintessentially LA creatives with whom we have quite a bit of history. Artist Geoff McFetridge’s cool, flowing lines can be found from the blankets at The Standard, Hollywood all the way to wallpaper at The Standard, High Line. Our history with landscape architect Judy Kameon goes back even further. Judy’s father Herbert Kameon was one of the original architects of 8300 Sunset Boulevard, and few know just how to capture the spirit and ambience of LA quite like her. With these two creative powerhouses front and center, we knew we were in good hands. Geoff and Judy sat down for a chat on sunny day in Hollywood to discuss their contributions to the space, and the thought process behind their work. Check out the video below.
