Design Inspiration for St Regis Bermuda
The St. Regis Bermuda, a $120 million investment project in St George’s is designed as a gentle arch spanning the beautiful beach at Achilles Bay, sitting between Fort of St Catherine and Fort Albert. The project will include the renovation of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course and will complement St Georges’ UNESCO World Heritage Site designation.
Developed by Hotelco, an experienced international real estate, and hotel development group, the new five-star hotel will feature 122 beach and golf front rooms and 90 condominiums. Inspired in the Bermudian vernacular, the buildings are richly articulated and woven into the gently sloping site. The hotel will become a unique opportunity to experience Bermudian elegant living while providing a robust economic anchor for the local economy.
Designed by OBMI, Royal Gazette (RG) talked to the architects and owners about what drew them to Bermuda and their excitement about building the island’s newest hotel.
Was trying to capture the essence of Bermuda the driving force behind the finished design?
Absolutely! Staying loyal to the character and culture of the places where we design lies at the core of who we are as a master planning, architecture, and design firm. Particularly true in Bermuda, where OBMI have such a long and rich history designing cultural appropriate architectural designs.
