    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

By submitting to a thorough review and on-site audit by the non-profit third-party certifier Green Seal, the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live helps protect human health and the environment by reducing waste, conserving water and energy, and by instituting green management policies that include environmental purchasing and hazardous substance handling, all requirements of the Green Seal Standard for Hotels and Lodging Properties (GS-33).

“We are constantly looking for ways to lessen our impact on the environment, and hope to inspire our guests and others to do the same. Sustainability is a real, everyday practice, and our ongoing efforts to conserve water, reduce energy and recycle not only enhances our guests’ experience, but also shows our commitment to positively impacting our community and the world we live in.” Javier Cano, General Manager, JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A.
