Our First Year in Miami

As we all experienced, 2020 was certainly a year of many challenges for all of us. Nevertheless, our design workshop’s first expansion beyond its Washington D.C studio was worth all the dedication and efforts. Miami’s proximity to the Caribbean and projects centered around water have made the location irresistible and as the hospitality industry are making a comeback, Winstanley’s first year cannot be brighter.

We are proud to share that the Miami design studio is currently working on various projects. Alongside with that, we have also hosted The 2020 ULI/Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition finals here in the Miami design studio. Some of the many projects that we are very excited about are:

Projects in the Caribbean

Nisbet Plantation Resort in Nevis is located about 220 miles Southeast of Puerto Rico and 50 miles West of Antigua. It is a laid-back Caribbean island paradise. The Nisbet Plantation Resort is an intimate, beachfront resort hidden away in the beautiful Caribbean island of Nevis. Untouched by mass tourism, the location provides seclusion and tranquility, thus making it a beautiful island hideaway.

Indigo Bay in St. Maarten is a prime residential and commercial development located on the Dutch side of Saint Maarten. The community features 16.5 acres parcel with ocean view and consist of 100+ luxury homes equipped with solar energy, water recapture and green roof technology. Along with that, Indigo Bay features 1200 ft of exclusive coastline with pristine beach, and 3 man-made jetties, providing a true live, work and play experience for all the residence.

Projects in Miami

This include a concept design for a 60-story residential tower in the Edgewater area, located very close to Downtown Miami; Condominium in exclusive South of Fifth neighborhood, South Beach; and recently being shortlisted for the FIU Trish & Dan Bell Chapel project.

Projects in West Palm Beach

Development of the Northwood Art and Music Center, an up and coming artsy neighborhood where musician and artist cultivate immersive experience through music performances, art galleries and eye-catching murals.
