AvroKO’s luxury resort The Scott draws inspiration from Havana

Sep 18, 2018 / News

Scottsdale, Arizona’s The Scott, a resort formerly known as Firesky Resort & Spa, has been undergone a large-scale renovation by our friends at AvroKO. Located in that city’s Old Town district, the 190,K SqFt hotel features 204 guest rooms, public areas, three dining options, 14.5,K SqFt of indoor meeting space, and two pools. For the design the team drew inspiration from the modernist architecture of Havana. Through the use of custom furnishings in rattan and wicker, as well as wood accents throughout, the firm created what they call “A mash-up of Bauhaus’ian and Cuban details and layers,” the former influence present in a series of curved brass chandeliers, the latter in the use of amber-colored cane screens in a hexagonal design, used both as accents and partitions. One of three aforementioned dining options, the Canal Club restaurant, features Cuban-inspired cuisine. Additionally the revived resort features tons of plantings as well as paintings and wallpapers depicting tropical scenes.
