The Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Florida has revealed a new lounge-like lobby featuring a library, cafe, resort shop and expanded Promenade bar. The team at Leo A Daly, an award-winning architecture and interior design firm, developed a color palette reflective of St. Pete’s distinctive culture with rich vibrant colors to mirror the thriving arts scene and soothing blues, gold and warmer tones echoing the natural surroundings. The resort’s iconic Mediterranean Revival architecture were carefully preserved while adding new works of art such as a custom Renee Dinauer sculpture at the entry and one-of-a-kind Chihuly pieces.
To encourage a more social atmosphere, furniture was carefully placed to allow plenty of room for guests to gather with friends at the bar while the new library is warm and inviting flanked by two large millwork pieces and a central fireplace. Perfect for those looking for a quick bite to eat or light snack, the new St. Petersburg, Florida restaurant and cafe offers a grab-and-go style menu and specialty coffee drinks. The resort’s iconic veranda has become a popular hangout thanks to added seating and a fire pit on the patio level.
