The Shore Club Resort in Turks & Caicos was a large new build project with a challenging accelerated construction schedule to meet an open date for the 2017 Caribbean season. The design team was tasked with the challenge of designing and conceptualizing 5 large and distinctly different areas that all required their own personalities within the same unifying concept. All of these expansive spaces were to be interwoven together and all required interesting and luxurious outdoor materials throughout since the entire resort would be open-air and exposed to the Caribbean elements.
Rather than building architecture in conventional form, our intention was to start with the open space, to create a series of patios, a garden which happened to host a series of disparate functions. To bring what would usually be thought of as separate spaces together, to allow them to speak to each other in familiar, non-hierarchical terms.
We relied on fluidity of space to unify the experience. To create personalized environments, experientially rich interstitial spaces. By keeping it pure and reductive, mostly devoid of ornamentation yet rich in experience, we aimed to redefine the palace. By blending Architecture, Landscape and Interiors into a seamless experience we aimed to redefine the concept of what we ultimately seek in luxury.
The entire resort offers materials and furniture that are as outdoor-durable as they are luxurious and comfortable; it is a true Caribbean garden escape.
