MEMORABLE. HARMONIOUS. UNEXPECTED. Every landscape architecture firm will tell you they offer solutions, they provide sustainable design, they provide a sense of place. While it’s fair to say we do the same, it’s also true that we take it one step further. We look for the less obvious solution, the one that surprises, delights and draws every person who enters the space into an experience that touches all senses. It’s about design that interacts with the natural environment, the architecture, and the way in which light plays across the land. It’s vistas, small or large, at every turn, and a seamless merging of interior and exterior elements. At Forma Design Partners, there is no signature style, only a deep respect for our clients, their projects, and the culture, climate and resources of their site. We are committed to providing artistic, creative

outdoor spaces that linger in the minds of visitors long after they’ve left.

Anchored by a Michelin-starred restaurant, the hotel is perfectly situated among the finest vineyards in the region. A recent expansion and renovation of the property included the addition of nine new luxury suites and a full service farm-to-table spa. Extensive improvements were made to the grounds that carefully blend the new landscape features with the existing. Guests can stroll through the intimate gardens, relax among the many water features, or gather in the evenings at the pool-side fire pits for a glass of wine and roasted s’mores. The expanded restaurant terrace offers private dining under a custom iron trellis and the rustic stone walls interrupted by picket fences and vine covered trellises complete the casual farmhouse vibe.

The hotel aimed to provide the comforts and familiarity of visiting a wealthy friends urban loft. We collaborated with SkyLab Architecture to develop a roof amenity deck based upon their successful ‘Departure’ restaurant concept based in Portland, Oregon.

The concept, a sub-set manifested from the

Departure theme, was based upon ‘Flight’. Design geometries were influenced by the beauty and strength of aerodynamics and the vessels of the sky.

We were commissioned to design streetscape arrival, porte cochere plaza and a rooftop pool and restaurant amenity space.

The lobby program & materiality continued thru the space to invoke the one contiguous space idea. The rooftop was designed to incorporate a 25 meter stainless steel lap pool with a brimful edge that can double as a fashion show runway with the custom made plexi-glass stage insert. The space will be highlighted by a 20 ft. wide water veil that creates tranquil sounds of water while providing a vi eo and digital projection screen directly on the water.
