Hakatai has been a trusted source of high-quality glass mosaic tile for nearly every project designed by California-based architect Eric Rochin for 10 years and counting. Rochin, principal of Wildman Design in Malibu, recently specified over 2,400 square feet of Hakatai's top-selling Classic series in two different standard blends - and this project had a hometown connection.
His latest project, remodeling the showers at the Ashland Motel, happens to be located just a few miles down the road from the Hakatai facility in Ashland, Oregon.
The premium boutique motel is located across from Southern Oregon University in scenic Ashland. This picturesque venue, tucked neatly away in the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains, served as the ideal location for Wildman Design's latest shower remodeling project. Rochin has developed his own brand of "retro-modern" design, and finds glass tile from Hakatai fits perfectly with his vision. The Ashland Motel features 26 rooms filled with modern amenities, and Rochin specified two different standard blends from the 27 available in Hakatai's Classic series for each room's shower. The remodel of the Ashland Motel showers was done in blocks, rotating the Charcoal Blend and Slate Blue Blend each time the project moved ahead to the next set of guestrooms. Pictured here is a shower featuring the Classic series' Slate Blue Blend.
"I've used Hakatai glass mosaics for every one of my properties," said Rochin. "I love this product because it works well with my style of design which I would say is 'retro-modern.' I really like the look of glass tile and Hakatai offers the finest product and price in the business. The quality is superb and Hakatai is very easy to work with. I've been using Hakatai products for about 10 years and I've never had a problem with the service or the product's quality. In fact, I don't think I've done a shower in the last five years and not used Hakatai glass tiles."
