Stunning Sand Piper Resort by Hughes Umbanhowar Architects

A redesigned breathtaking resortLocated in beautiful Port St. Lucie, Florida, the Sand Piper Resort is a whopping 400,000 square foot area.

Hughes Umbanhowar Architects renewed and renovated the existing property at the Club Med resort. The original resort had a one “trident” rating. After the project is completed, the resort will have a ranking of four “tridents,” which makes it an exclusive destination for vacationers to visit.

The resort was originally built in the 1960s. Since that time, there have been numerous additions and renovations to keep the facility presentable for the guests. However, none of those projects can compare to the most current plan.

At the center of the resort, the architect is creating a village. The centralized village will accommodate the guests dining needs and recreational activities. There is a beautiful and large swimming pool where guests can relax and get some sun by the water. They will also have options for relaxing in the shade with easy access to taking a swim in the refreshing pool water.

In addition to dining and swimming, the resort also has a tennis facility. The architects are redesigning and expanding the existing tennis area. On the outskirts of the tennis courts, guests can make their way over to the golf course. Nearby the golf there is a beautiful waterway that is getting restored during this construction phase.

The resort project renovation will take place over multiple phases. Doing this restoration in stages allows the resort to stay open during construction. It will take over a year to redo the buildings with guest rooms. All of the public areas are getting renovated at the same time to minimize closed periods for the visitors.

Another goal of the project is to be an environmentally friendly and sustainable resort. They want to get ranked by the Green Globe rating system with a minimum of three Green Globes.

The majority of the primary components are stucco, which fit in with the surrounding Florida themes. Stucco is great for areas with prolonged periods of sun exposure and heat. The architect is also using wood structures, patterned ceramic tile, and Ferrari fabric for this project.

Overall, the multiple phase project will create a breathtaking resort. It will provide a new look for a vacation spot that’s been around for over fifty years. The San Piper Resort in Port St. Lucie, Florida will be the epitome of luxury when it’s finally complete.
