THE ART OF ARCHITECTURE
By : MÁRIO DE CASTRO
Interview Scott Lee President SB Architects
Notoriously famous and based in San Francisco, SB Architects has spread its multiple talents around the world based on serious reflections on hospitality, architecture, design, innovation and high technology but always facing the Eco sustainable world we are living in. With offices in San Francisco, Miami, London and Shenzhen, SB Architects has gained reputation for award-wining signature projects around the world.
Projects embrace private island resorts, skyline exotic buildings, golf’s, spa’s, award-winning luxury hospitality hotels…
We can play a game of dropping names for the most prestigious hospitality brands around the world, but SB Architects is seriously revamping a brand-new world of building to measure having in mind a whole future in permanent evolution. From Amara Hotel and Residences in Cyprus to Andaz San Diego in California; Dorado Beach-A Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico to Fisher Island, Miami; from Hilton Cancun, Mexico to Las Vegas, Egypt, Spain, Portugal, Albania, Xiamen, China, Hanoi, Vietnam, Frisco, Texas…there are endless engaging places around the globe not to mention the numerous private homes that SB Architects builds for a very accurate clientele.
As our planet is facing a pandemic for almost two years, the work-from-home phenomenon has brought many new interrogation points to the residential design moving forward movement.
Hotels are being obliged to adapt and respond to a new segment of “bleisure” travelers, including design elements and experiential programming that can help developers and operators distinguish their offerings.
There is a rise of the urban resort and increasing importance of experiential hospitality; integrating alternative stays/glamping into resort destinations is the ultimate trend.
Most hotels are already adapting F&B offerings in response to the era of COVID-19.
On the waiting list upcoming SB Architects projects, we like Calistoga Ranch, an Infinite Explorer Wellness Experience, Zomes and exciting new venues in Albania…we already unveiled too much…just wait and you will see.
There is a feeling about SB Architects that you may meet their talents at any corner of the planet
