    The Lubner Group has recently completed the total renovation and installation of new furnishings for five “Old Conch” styled buildings with a storied past at the Coconut Beach Resort in Key West, Florida, positioning the resort to enter a new phase in its legendary history.Located at 1500 Alberta Street on the Atlantic side of Key West, the vacation ownership resort is set against lush gardens and quiet walkways with white verandahs and French doors opening to the sea. The design challenge was to blend existing Victorian gingerbread architecture – rich with living history – with a fresh lifestyle in an updated tropical design that invited guests to relax in serene tranquility. Amenities include a pool, Jacuzzi, and private beach. The resort has been named an Interval International Select Resort.

    The Group completed the six-month total interior renovation project in three phases. Work included the selection of all furnishings and energy-efficient appliances for 32 one- and two-bedroom/two bath units plus the resort’s lobby. An important requirement was to create a unified design package for each of the five buildings (two of which were previously single-family homes), with room sizes ranging from 800 to 1,150 square feet and different ceiling heights. The design firm ensured that work was completed with limited inconvenience to guests during continuous high occupancy levels at this popular hospitality destination property.
