The Ritz Carlton Hotel on Key Biscayne is one of the most iconic hotels on the barrier island of Miami. It is located just 20 minutes from Miami International Airport, yet is worlds away from the bustle of downtown Miami.
When the hotel needed renovations to their Coastal Boutique Gift Shop, they turned to an established design/build construction company for the project. According to the contractor, “We are a full service firm with design, construction and fixtures divisions. We have been working with the Marriott and Ritz Carlton group for 28 years mostly on their retail space and lobbies.
“In this particular project on Key Biscayne in South Florida, we provided design service themed by the coastal atmosphere and subtropical climate. We chose an American manufacturer for the tile after visiting their plant and noting their attention to detail and overall quality control. They were also recognized for their use of recycled products in their line of tile. We specified a light wood-look tile that incorporated a weathered look to fit the area. We have worked with our tile distributor for more than 15 years and carry samples of their products in our own showroom for our customers to see.”
The Coastal Boutique emanates bright airy light with beaming glass displays and clean, white-washed walls. Touches of coastal blues and greens are reminiscent of the lush, tropical landscape and island waters just outside the door, complementing the chic, modern design of the shop’s interior and emphasized with their new wood-look tile floor.
