Mirror-like water surfaces merge with breathtaking ocean views to set the tone for the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Singer Island, Florida.
The landscape architect used water surfaces and lush seaside planting to connect the resort residences with the surrounding coastal environment. A terraced pool deck design abstracts the notion of an island surrounded by ocean.
The project was developed on a 9-acre ocean front site. A podium level connects two 27-story towers built over a parking garage. This podium level accommodates the porte cochere arrival area, a 50,000 square feet resort amenity deck and a restaurant. The site also includes five ocean-side bungalows and a beach access walkway meandering through restored coastal dunes.
Provided landscape architecture and planning services for the entire project including site planning, pool and water feature design, entry design, planting, hardscape, lighting & irrigation. Landscape Design Workshop also provided project coordination throughout the lengthy entitlement process.
