After reinventing Miami’s Surf Club into a stunning Four Seasons, Fort Partners is working its magic on the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach. The developers tapped Martin Brudnizki to design its new pastel palette and beachier finishes such as terrazzo and rattan, as well as local landscape designer Fernando Wong for the grounds. Wong, who also worked on the Surf Club project, was able to locate a mature tropical tree again to install as the lush garden’s focal point. Within 209 suites and rooms total, the hotel adds a new category of first-floor accommodations with personal, spacious outdoor areas around the pool. A two Michelin-starred chef helms onsite restaurant Florie’s, when the resort re-opens in November; Mauro Colagreco gained fame for his Mirazur on the France and Italy border.
