Components

  • Custom  Willow Panels

Challenge

1 Hotel wants guests to experience nature in everything they see, touch, smell, and taste while visiting. Authentic materials and textures are a must for the proper ambiance. The designer provided a rendering of how they wanted the outdoor area to look. At that point the “cover” was undefined, but wanting a natural material theme, they asked for suggestions. They needed:

  • the final product to meet Miami-Dade County's wind and fire codes
  • amaZulu to work with the engineers as safety was the critical issue
  • a standout focal point for the outside entertainment area
  • a natural product but one with a long lifespan.

 

Strategy

We needed to work closely with the Architect, Engineer, and Ownership to customize a natural focal point. Weight was a factor as the frame was pre-engineered. This requirement necessitated a custom product.

amaZulu focused on creating something with a lot of texture, a natural product that was not solid to cause wind uplift but hardy enough to survive the elements.

Results

The owner was delighted with the final product. Our Willow Panels was hand-made with customized sizes to drop easily into the metal frame. Installation was easy and provided significant savings. Fire retardant was applied on-site to ensure compliance with fire codes.

The color and texture of the Willow Panels added a beautiful contrast to the hotel's straight contemporary lines. Customers continue to enjoy a natural environment that not only looks great but provides cool relief from the Miami sun.
