Florida, the atmosphere was one of "graciousness, so we

terracotta roof and exterior scalloped balcony railings are among

the updated components) led the team to design from a singular

Like the Bradley Park era, the outdoor courtyard, now expanded
with a pool acting as a privacy-inducing buffer from the street, is
the centerpiece of the 32-room retreat. Through a door carved from
reclaimed wood is the lobby, with its series of arches mirroring the
façade, the recreated original fireplace, and artwork from the likes
of Ghada Amer, Bernhard Buhmann, Orit Fuchs, and Sue Williams.

define the lobby's main pathway.
