FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA
The Buena Vista Hotel, in Lauderdale by the Sea, is a re-adaptation of an existing hotel that contains a two story section to be demolished for an addition and a three story section to be reused with the addition of a fourth floor. The final design is a single, four story building with a rooftop pool deck and amenities. As a seaside site, nautical themes guided ODP in the selection of forms and materials. Wood decking, sunshades and sunscreens recall docks and maritime structures while railings and cables make connections to sailing vessels.
