Luxury condos designed in a tropical interpretation of Dutch West Indies architecture fit perfectly into a master-planned community.
The Georgetown, nestled in the heart of Rosemary Beach, Florida, is a thoughtfully-designed mixed-use building that serves as the finishing touch of the community\'s downtown district. This four-story structure is comprised of nine residences and over 4,000 square feet of prime retail space. Designed in a tropical interpretation of Dutch West Indies architecture, these luxury condominiums seamlessly integrate into the meticulously planned urban landscape.
The architectural vocabulary of The Georgetown adheres to stringent guidelines, ensuring it harmonizes flawlessly with its neighbors. The building overlooks a public square, and an intriguing challenge lay in its height: it needed to appear as a three-story structure when, in fact, it stretches to four. Our solution utilizes a false roof line below the fourth-floor windows, along with large sections of unbroken exterior wall planes spanning the bottom three floors. These elements combined create the intended appearance, maintaining the public square’s aesthetic continuity.
The Georgetown is artfully blended into Rosemary Beach, the intricately-planned community designed by Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, FAIA of DPZ CoDesign. The 107-acre site along the Gulf of Mexico combines New Urbanism principles, emphasizing walkability and design at the human scale. Rosemary Beach is known for its brick-lined sidewalks, expansive verdant spaces, inspired architecture, boardwalks, cobblestone streets, and walkable town center.
