Tasked with renovating the resort in Florida’s Palm Beach Gardens, the firm researched the city the resort calls home and the current state of golf clubs as they conceptualized the golf club of tomorrow. Palm Beach Gardens was planned to be one with nature – complete with a mighty Banyan tree serving as the city’s symbol. The all-new resort experience begins at the porte-cochère. Guests are greeted by a tented awning of crisp black, white, and poppy-colored striped cabana curtains. A grand lobby awaits just beyond. Here, a traversing path leads to a private check-in area, guest elevators, and a sundries juice bar. Designers raised the main lobby area up two steps, elevating the space and making way for sunken, semi-circular, decidedly 60’s conversation pits. A central floating bar sits against the windowed backdrop of silhouetted palm trees and boasts a monolithic bar and a glimmering interpretation of the city’s Banyan tree made from glass and twisted metal. Cool tones and clean lines are “de rigueur” in the guestrooms. Custom vintage-inspired wallcoverings, plush area rugs, thickly-upholstered headboards, and mid-century style soft seating create a perfectly collected look.
