The Firm’s approach to hospitality architecture is informed by an understanding of “The Destination”. A 5-star resort must function well, it must be designed to meet the financial goals of the developer; the operational goals of the hotel operator; and to exceed the expectations of the guest. We believe that the structures of a thoughtfully designed resort should complement the site; they should relate to the local vernacular and heritage while remaining distinctive, elegant and modern. We also believe that the quality of the guest experience is directly related to the successful integration of the architecture, the interiors and the landscape. Our goal is to create unique and memorable places.
