Sea or forest, Jersey Shore or Aegean Island, these four hospitality projects reflect the beauty of their natural surroundings.
Project: Asbury Ocean Club Surfside Resort & Residences
Site: Asbury Park, New Jersey
Standout: Most of the team behind the Asbury Hotel—as well as the revival of the shore town that originally put Bruce Springsteen on the map—is back at it again with a luxury building composed of a 17-story residential tower and a 54-room boutique hotel, all overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
“The pristine building has all the comforts—light, air, sun, chic materials—without ever being pretentious.” —Anda Andrei

Project: Mr. C Coconut Grove
Standout: A nautical meets Italian 1950’s aesthetic permeates the 100-key Florida debut of the Cipriani brothers’ boutique-hotel chain, from the yachtlike glossy afrormosia millwork and smaller-scaled furnishings to the palm-patterned carpet and leather-upholstered headboards in a Biscayne Bay–inspired palette.
“The carefully layered style of mid-century Italy is evident throughout.” —Martin Brudnizki

Firm: Continuation Studio
Project: Yule Mountain Boutique Hotel
Site: Hangzhou, China
Standout: To give each guest room a forest view, the architects cut the number of them in the existing hotel structure from 30 to 15, and then outfitted the expanded interiors in lauan, the Southeast Asian wood that also forms the slatted screens obscuring the third- and fourth-floor bathrooms.
“Reuniting with the landscape was the goal of this project.”

Site: Kolympithres, Greece
Standout: With a name derived from parhelion, a sunlike optical illusion in the form of a luminous ring, and architecture inspired by the Aegean archipelago’s famous white-block dwellings, the resort’s six plaster buildings contain 33 suites featuring textiles and ceramics by artisans from Morocco and Crete.
“The design is influenced by the island’s traditional houses and fortresslike monasteries.”
