Design offices including Esrawe Studio and Rojkind Arquitectos have unveiled plans for Asbury Beach Club, a resort in New Jersey. that will feature sand-coloured concrete sunshades.
The club is located on the Atlantic Ocean in Asbury Park, a seaside town on the Jersey Shore coastal strip of New Jersey in the USA.
The project is a collaboration between Mexican studios Rojkind Arquitestos, Esrawe Studio and Cadena Concept Design plus American firms Anda Andrei Design, which is headed by Ian Schrager's former designer Anda Andrei, and New York firm Slade Architecture.
Asbury Beach Club will include two sites on the beach, a public lot on the north side and a private lot on the south side.
Due to the beach club being built on a floodplain with a zoning height limit, the building has been designed to be low-rise.
Held up by umbrella-shaped concrete columns, the development's roof doubles as an elevated pool deck reached via various staircases.
Changing rooms, exclusive cabanas and an outdoor sand gym will be housed on the private lot's lower level.
"This enclosed lower level is [going to be] clad in reclaimed wood to match the original boardwalk," said Esrawe Studio, which was named interior design studio of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020.
The concrete columns will extend to the public north side of the club, where a cluster of them will form a shade canopy.
Underneath the canopy, there will be seating and other public amenities, including showers and restrooms.
