The new-build, 501-room Omni PGA Frisco Resort, mixed-use development in Frisco, Texas, has broken ground.
Inspired by Texas Modernism, the architecture is timeless, contemporary but signature to the area, to reflect the future-thinking approach of the development. Arranged in a campus-style format, SB Architects, in collaboration with Robert Glazier Architects, has developed an amenity-driven site-plan that focuses on maximizing views and capturing the look and feel of a destination golf resort.
To help create a human scale for the architecture, SB Architects created a direct connection to the outdoors, drew natural light and ventilation into each space, and used grading, trees, and the landscape to break down the scale and reflect an intimate ambience with all the perks of a larger, resort hotel. The landscape and use of local materials are indispensable within the design. The built environment is broken down into a series of courtyards, and an infrastructure of trails and networks respectfully lead guests through the development. A promenade connects the entire development, linking Omni’s resort lobby, all-day dining restaurant and spa and fitness facility and creating a pedestrian-orientated, walkable environment.
Elegant architectural forms and natural materials are utilized to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The use of stone, both horizontally and vertically, large overhangs, wood detailing and ironwork all work together to create a modern contemporary feel that is layered, textured and accessible.
The resort is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
