Blueprint: Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences
Fort Lauderdale Beach can look forward to another glimmering addition to its skyline: the upcoming Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences, slated for completion in 2020. A design dream team has been assembled for the 22-story luxury destination. Miami-based architect Kobi Karp created a nautical-inspired building resembling the elegant bow of a luxury cruise liner, complete with an oceanfront pool terrace and plush cabanas.
Landscape architect Fernando Wong will cover a third of the property in palm trees and native plants. Inside, British interior designer Tara Bernerd reinterprets coastal living for the hotel’s 130 guest rooms and 90 private residences (both unfurnished and fully furnished offerings), with modern millwork and European midcentury-inspired furnishings. And designer Martin Brudnizki infuses classic yacht-club glamour into the hotel’s culinary attractions, which include interior and alfresco restaurants, lounges and an ocean-view outdoor cafe.
