ROBERT TOWELL ARCHITECTure & Design LTD. Sleek, simple designs that are modern yet timeless are the hallmarks of Robert Towell’s architectural style. A great admirer of mid-20th century architecture, his preference is for streamlined, clean lines and an absence of intricate embellishments. Originally from Canada, Towell spent the early years of his career working on theatre, cinema and bank projects as well as upscale residential homes in Toronto, before moving to Bermuda in 1994. Having relocated to Grand Cayman 17 years ago, and now heading up his own firm with a large portfolio of residential and commercial projects, Towell can rightly claim to have played a part in shaping the Cayman Islands as they are today. Towell is the creative force behind the iconic designs such as the Crystal Cove development. The luxury contemporary homes illustrate the architect’s preference for sharp lines, and extensive use of glass and aluminium, integrated with tropical hardwoods and natural stone to create stylish but relaxed residences. In addition to having recently designed the newest phase of the Morritt’s resort in Grand Cayman’s East End, the firm is also involved in what will be a state-of-the-art ‘Minus 5 Ice Bar’ in George Town – the interior of which will be made almost entirely of ice and kept at sub-zero temperatures.
