Hospitality amenities across America are reimagining, remodeling, rebuilding, and redefining who they are in order to be relevant to future generations of patrons. Stayed tradition is giving way to new experiences. Key Largo Anglers Club rehabilitation and expansion prepares for the next storms coming, preserving, and telling the story of its past while preparing for a bright future.
The project’s guiding principles envision a vibrant and successful “Fishing Camp”, which maintains the history, heritage, and traditions of the past for generations to come. In order to keep the story alive and preserve its rich history, the perimeter of the clubhouse was fortified, protecting the original lodge much like the previous renovation did post-Hurricane Andrew. This current improvement plan finds the right balance of preservation and modernization, holding on to the past while moving forward to protect the future.
