BOULDERS RESORT

Resort renovation and expansion

Scottsdale, AZ

2008

The expansion of a 1970s classic golf resort includes 50 new guest rooms in linear strands folded into the contours of the Sonora desert landscape. The loft-like rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling glass with large outdoor areas, including plunge pools that juxtapose luxury with the rugged, arid terrain. Indoor and outdoor life is contiguous. Interventions into the existing resort may include a renovation of the lodge and restaurant, and a new pool with a swim-up bar and an inclined beach-like structure that dives into the water at one end and cantilevers over the café at the other, providing a screen from the elements.
