300 units / 360,000 sq. ft
The Helix at Lake Mary, located in Lake Mary, Florida is a 300 unit luxury community that encompasses a delicate balance between its owner's modern design preference and the more traditional nature of its anticipated demographic. Due to its central Florida location, this project’s design took cues from a lakeside resort theme, whilst maintaining a boutique hotel look. The nearly 15,000 sq ft of amenity space focuses on a color scheme of cool blues and whites (reminiscent of sky and water) which are brightened with sunshine yellow. Warm stained wood tones are influenced by wooden plank docks and high-end boat decks. The geometry of sails and shade umbrellas is reflected in the patterns and shapes of interior finish materials, artwork, fabrics, and lighting. Large scale art pieces installed on crisp sail white walls gives the space a gallery effect as staff and residents move between the operational and social zones. Double volume spaces with full height storefront glass amplify the grandeur and bring the literal sunshine into the gathering spaces, creating an atmosphere of hospitality for prospective tenants and existing residents alike.
