To execute this task, sfa focused on the seamless transition between indoor and outdoor space, using bold, yet minimalistic fixtures to accentuate the architectural lines based on the ideas of Luis Barragan, who has worked to give the Mexican hacienda a fresh up-to-date design.

  13. 13. HOTEL INDIGO New York, New York The vision for Hotel Indigo, a chain of cutting-edge, urban hotels is to offer modern, transcendental interiors, while using green practices to generate luxury ambience. sfa design created the Hotel Indigo Manhattan prototype to showcase a space that is as innovative as it is inviting - a warmer, more welcoming version of the uber-chic boutique.

  15. 15. VENEZIA TOWER Venetian Hotel Resort & Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada For the Venezia Tower, sfa design created a hideaway within the hotel that builds upon the Venetian’s existing Italian Renaissance theme, while evoking the ambiance of a private palazzo.

Scope: New Build Condo Hotel – 286 Guest Units, Public Spaces and Executive
  18. 18. DISNEY’S BOARDWALK INN Lake Buena Vista, Florida With nearly 400 guestrooms, suites and duplex cottages Disney’s Boardwalk Inn is a traditional resort set on the coast of Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Inspired by the early- 20th century seaside resorts, the hotel is located on a lively boardwalk of shops and restaurants. The spirit of the space is romanticized beach house elegance. Like most Disney designs, the theme for the Boardwalk Inn possesses elements of fantasy with motion picture- esque characteristics. Its impressive outcome won the project the cover of Hospitality Design Magazine. The nautical vibe is created using antiquated furniture, light patterned prints and wicker details. A world traveler’s collection of art and artifacts decorates every cabinet, cupboard and surface, giving the space a personalized quality, as if it is someone’s beachside retreat. A casual elegance is evoked with graceful chandeliers and floral and striped fabrics that set a mood of joyful relaxation. Whimsical statues like that of a glass elephant atop the fireplace and a stone horse holding a large floral arrangement enhance the whimsical feel of the space. Colorful pillows and couches carefully mismatch with seashell printed armchairs to further a mood of eclectic comfort. The result is a joyful atmosphere that evokes an elegant image of a 1900s beach resort, with a touch of playful imagination unique to the world of Disney. Scope: New Build - 378 Guestrooms & Presidential Suite, 532 Vacation Villas & Member’s Lounge, All Public Spaces including Lobby, Lobby Lounge, Dining, Pre- Function and Ballroom/Meeting Space

  21. 21. MONTECITO RESIDENCE Private Estate – Montecito, California Stepping away from the cold sparseness and narrow lines of modern minimalism, the design for a recently renovated 5,000-square-foot Montecito estate fuses valley richness with contemporary refinement.

  22. 22. MONTECITO RESIDENCE Private Estate – Montecito, California
  23. 23. ITALIAN VILLA Private Residence – Southern California Paying homage to old-world graciousness and elegant, ultra-livable homes, sfa’s design for this 12,000-square-foot Montecito estate was inspired by a famous Pompeian villa.

  24. 24. ITALIAN VILLA Private Residence – Southern California

  28. 28. LOS ALTOS Private Residence – Los Altos Hills, California Inspired by the serene, lush landscaping of this 8,000-square-foot Bay Area home, sfa design created a harmonious retreat by marrying rich Italian decor with clean neoclassical architecture. The consistency of color combined with the devotion to the Italian Rococo influence creates a symbiotic flow within all spaces of this residence. The gentle grandeur in each detail allows the classical Italian design to gracefully fuse with the home’s natural Californian setting.
  29. 29. MONTECITO Private Residence – Montecito, California Dramatic architecture by Richard Landry and elegant interior design come together to create an inviting and enchanting space in this 6,000-square-foot Spanish-style home. sfa established a tone of sophistication by merging deep umber patterned wood flooring with delicate fabrics and rich tapestries that generate an air of lavishness within the rustic atmosphere.
  30. 30. BEL AIR Private Residence – Bel Air, California To invent an innovative, yet elegant design for this Bel Air residence, sfa employed the simple element of sleek, uncomplicated surfaces in the clean lines of furniture, art, walls and flooring. Unadorned spaces and a palette of cream and auburn woods give a quiet modesty to the design, as the open layout, influx of light from floor length windows and the use of fireplaces warm up the hip, contemporary environment.
  31. 31. BEL AIR Private Residence – Bel Air, California
  32. 32. SAILING YACHT TAMSEN Via Reggio, Italy The primary goal in designing the 174-foot private yacht, Tamsen, was to combine the exquisite elements of a classic Italian Perini Navi with the warmth, functionality and modern sensibility of a contemporary living space for the owner’s extended family. Balancing a traditional nautical backdrop, with an innovative contemporary design, sfa enlivened the rich teak interiors with vibrant digitized artwork. Every aspect of the ship’s design pays tribute to the owners’ love of sailing and sailboats while infusing their personal appreciation of modern artistry.
