SAN DIEGO, CA (April 4, 2013) — Architectural Concepts, Inc. (ACI) a San Diego firm regarded as one of the Southwest’s top hospitality-oriented architectural and interior design firms announced its new contract to work with Star Resort Group & John Howton on the design of Seahorse Estates Beach Club. The Beach Club will be the focal point of a 108 acre master planned resort community which includes wholly-owned homes and fractional properties.
Architectural Concepts is creating a spectacular “country-club type” facility with full amenities to service the Follets Island project. Located between Surfside and Galveston Texas, with unobstructed views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Drum Bay, Seahorse Beach Club is an hour’s drive from Houston.
Included in the nearly 10,000 square ft. Beach Club will be three hotel suites, a sales center, recreation and game room, movie room, luxury spa, and fitness studio. The bar/lounge will have indoor and outdoor dining for 100. . Outside there will be an enormous activity pool with an infinity edge falling to a fire pit below, and a “not so small” kid’s pool.
“Our primary goal is to provide a fun, multi-purpose amenity for the fractional property owners, as well as a sales center for Star Resort Group. Our concept interior style of “YACHT CLUB” is based on the abundant water activities and culture of the beachfront locale. The idea is that this exclusive Beach Club will be the social scene for owners and their guests,” said Margit Whitlock, Principal of Architectural Concepts.
According to Carl G. Berry, President and CEO of Arizona-based Star Resort Group, Architectural Concepts was selected for its expertise in the shared ownership arena, as well as its “well-known reputation for creating exceptional themed resorts that fit a particular niche. We have known Margit Whitlock and her company for a number of years, and are thrilled that we finally have the opportunity to work with her and her talented group.”
