Florida Hotel

  • Project Type:  Commercial
  • Collaboration:  Ian Schrager Company
No other tree recaptures the glamour, reclaims the grandeur of 1950’s Miami Beach like the palm. Fanned and feathered leaves, once a symbol of victory and peace, now suggest a rare coalescence of splendor, intimacy and relaxation. Florida Royal, Sabel, Coconut, Chinese Fan, and Cardboard palms… …Framing custom teak lounge chairs, hemming low-lying beds, flanking cabanas, pools and period diving platforms, suspending hammocks. The vegetation is lush with Birds of Paradise, Green Island Ficus, Split Philodendron, Bravo Crotons, Bougainvillea. A tropical threshold of legendary significance between hotel and a 70,000 sq.ft. Miami beachfront.
