312,213 sf

TThe Spinnaker Group provided LEED Consulting, Building Commissioning and Energy Modeling on this state-of-the-art, 312,213 sf convention center hotel, which achieved LEED Silver in 2016. A 5-minute walk from Rosemary Square and the Palm Beach County Convention Center, this 4-Star hotel is also only 0.6 mi from Clematis Street and 5.3 mi from the Port of Palm Beach. The entire development team embraced an energy efficient-design early in the design phase of the project to ensure that sustainability was at the forefront of building planning. The result -- a strikingly beautiful, truly "green" urban resort and Florida destination. The building was designed to blend the interior to exterior experience and bring in light and air, with light flooding the public areas through oversized windows, a broad light-filled entry court created by angling the main façade of the hotel away from the street grid, and an expansive pool deck open to the sky for both the hotel and the convention center to enjoy. Sustainable concepts included glazing with a Low E coating. Building insulation and an SBS Modified Bitumen roofing system with a high SRI rating were employed to maximize energy efficiency. LED light fixtures and low-flow plumbing fixtures were selected and contribute to energy and water efficiencies, as does sustainable planting and irrigation techniques. The quality of the interior spaces was addressed through the use of low-emitting materials, monitoring of ventilation systems, and controllability of lighting and thermal comfort.

The South Beach retreat has 428 hotel rooms and is inspired by 600-feet of Atlantic Ocean beach. Vanity Fair described the venue as one "that oozes eco-friendly cool". The project consisted of renovating every aspect of 240 guestrooms, corridors, and 87 multi-room guest suites -- averaging 625 square feet each -- on seven floors of a 17-story landmark hotel/condominium complex in South Beach. From the overall design, to every detail of each guestroom and suite, the design team rigorously developed the essence of the hotel; enveloping each guest in the beauty found in nature, while also emphasizing the need to nurture the environment. To achieve this, guestrooms were designed with natural materials and fabrics that brought elements of nature into every space.

NBWW / Marriott / Coastal Construction
422,710  sf

Located at 2901 Collins Avenue on the grounds of the former Seville Hotel, the EDITION Miami Beach has proven itself to be the go-to destination to "stay and play" in the heart of South Beach (and not just during Art Basel) thanks to both its physical location and distinctive culture. The property, a luxurious restoration of the Seville Hotel circa 1955, is comprised of three intricately linked structures. NBWW was the architect for the 422,710 sf project, which includes a 294-room luxury hotel situated within the original 1950s tower, 25 luxury residences set on the top floors of the hotel, as well as an adjacent, newly built 18-story glass-clad condominium tower, and a curved five-story building that houses 28 bungalow hotel suites and several amenities, including meeting spaces, ice rink, bowling alley, night club, lounge bars and cabana roofs with private plunge pools. The Spinnaker Group provided LEED Consulting, Building Commissioning, and Energy Modeling for the project, which achieved LEED certification in July 2015. Thoughtfully designed, NBWW paid homage to the historic elements of the property while adding contemporary touches and whimsical details to restore and refresh the mid-century modern condo/hotel..
