Re-envisioning a Bayfront Motel

The Marquis Halback team was challenged with the task of transforming a mid-century modern motel into a high-end boutique hotel. Positioned at an important gateway into the historic downtown of St. Augustine, the master planning effort highlighted the site's location along the bayfront and magnificent views of the downtown skyline. Through a series of intimate garden spaces, cantilevered boardwalks, and a new poolscape, the design seeks to activate the waterfront edge and create a relaxing, yet high-end experience for guests.The project is in the beginning stages of permitting!
