CITY LINES

Anchors Aweigh

March 26, 1989|SAM HALL KAPLAN

Not content with major commissions across the United States, including the new federal office building under construction downtown, the architectural firm of Ellerbe Becket (formly Welton Becket) of Santa Monica has taken to the seas.

Specifically, the cruise ship Star Princess.

With the goal "to re-create and capture the romance and magic of the luxury liners of yesterday," the firm fashioned an interior design that reinforced the pleasures of promenading, including a three-story atrium on the liner's main deck featuring a grand stairway.

Talk about diversifying: one of Ellerbe Becket's recent projects was the federal detention center in downtown Los Angeles.
