Entry Description

The lobby of this boutique hotel is on the sight of a former gas station on your way to the Florida Keys. The building, though new has a modicum of GOOGI architecture meant to evoke a road trip escape as you pull up. Located directly on the Pacific, this fishing resort was meant to preserve its historic roots from the 60’s through today and beyond. The ceiling is repurposed drift wood that was salvaged from the sights previous tenant. The light fixtures are representative of the crab and lobster pots that generations of men fed their families as Florida Key’s pioneers. The Center core of the space is the herringbone and sand cement tile surrounded by oversize concrete natural tiles. The intention was to bring the water and sand
as a ripple directly into the lobby as you enter. The focal point is the reception desk.
