The Saint Hotel

Interior and Exterior Renovation  |  St. Petersburg Beach, FL  |  13,500 SQ FT  |  Completed in 2021

The Saint Hotel is a 1950s landmark that has undergone a redesign process incorporating retro elements to evoke the nostalgia of its glory days. The objective was to create a modern yet vintage aesthetic, that combines the laid-back feel of the nearby beach with the beguiling artistic nature of the adjacent city. EMPAD conceptualized and executed a design that conveyed a playful beach vibe while also paying homage to the culture of the area and its past. The exterior incorporates large-format murals that capture the boutique feel and essence of the era in which the hotel was established.
