Finding ourselves well into spring, what could be better than a refresh, whether by cleaning or rearranging your space, or going so far as to completely remodel and renovate, or even start again from scratch? With brighter, longer days upon us, we are finding renewed motivation and perspective when it comes to the possibilities within this industry.

In this issue of BUILD magazine, we’re excited to be celebrating our award-winning businesses who are no stranger to fabricating the perfect space. This even goes beyond the design and construction of a building, extending from the hardware and software that aids in the fruition of each project; to the adorning of each room in bespoke décor; to the green energy solutions that enable sustainability into the future; to the products and services that ensure safety and security; and to the real estate agents who assist with the buying and the selling.

BUILD Q2 2023 4 News istoric Jack’s Bay to include championship course by Nicklaus Design in addition to Par 3 course designed by Tiger Woods and TGR Design Nicklaus Design—the world’s leading golf course design company— announced today they have commenced work on an 18-hole championship layout at Jack’s Bay, the one-ofa-kind exclusive resort club and residential community that features four miles of magnificent white sand beaches on the Atlantic coastline on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. Jack’s Bay will be the first Nicklaus Heritage® course in the world, as well as include the rare Nicklaus real estate branding rights as a Nicklaus Community—a distinction afforded to only a very select collection of developments around the world and the very first in the Caribbean. This new Nicklaus Heritage brand of original golf course designs will showcase the senior designers from Nicklaus Design who have been personally trained by Jack Nicklaus over several decades. Nicklaus Heritage designs incorporate the design philosophies and values imparted to Nicklaus designers over their careers working with Jack on world famous golf courses under Nicklaus Design’s Jack Nicklaus Signature® brand. The championship course at Jack’s Bay will highlight characteristics unique to the region, combining the best of golf with authentic local features. Jack’s Bay is home to a separate, 10-hole Playground designed by Tiger Woods and TGR Design, which was completed in March 2020. Completion of the Nicklaus Heritage championship course is scheduled for 2025, making Jack’s Bay the first property in the world to feature an 18-hole golf course by Nicklaus Design coupled with a Tiger Woods and TGR Design. According to Howard Milstein, Executive Chairman of the Nicklaus Companies, Jack’s Bay will be one of the world’s most remarkable golf destinations and exclusive high-end communities. “The principals of Jack’s Bay Resort Development Limited have a remarkable vision to make their community the destination of choice for the most discerning golfer in The Bahamas and throughout the Caribbean. From my very first meeting, I committed all of our Nicklaus, IMI, and 8AM Golf assets to ensure the greatest golf experience imaginable,” Milstein said. “With the history of the island, stunning ocean views for golf and real estate, and access to world-class fishing and other amenities, Jack’s Bay rivals any destination in The Bahamas,” Milstein added. “Nicklaus Design is proud to have been selected to create a world-class golf course on this property.” First Nicklaus Heritage Course Breaks Ground In The Bahamas H The golf course design team will be led by Chad Goetz, Senior Design Associate at Nicklaus Design, who will be on-site to oversee all aspects of the design process. “It’s going to be spectacular,” Goetz said. “A number of holes stretch directly along on the ocean and even the land off the ocean has remarkable topography, featuring a rolling terrain of elevation changes, lakes, deep water “blue holes” to the ocean, and caves. What Mother Nature has provided us is rare and we plan to preserve the natural integrity and enhance the beauty of the island.” The Tiger Woods and TGR Design dubbed “The Playground,” is a 10-hole short course tracing the adjacent, stunning shoreline and provides a playing experience that perfectly complements the natural beauty of Jack’s Bay. The Playground features a flexible layout, with holes that range from 71 to 163 yards and offers a variety of shots and playing scenarios, challenging seasoned players while also being fun and welcoming for new golfers. “Jack’s Bay is destined to become the next great family destination and draw people from all over the world to Eleuthera,” said Tiger Woods. “The future is bright for Jack’s Bay.” Exclusive real estate offerings at Jack’s Bay will soon be available through its Founder’s Program and will include a

Overlooking the breath-taking beaches that frame the Atlantic Ocean, this stunning hotel plays host to a whole array of guests, each looking to experience a touch of beach relaxation from the comfort of their expertly crafted suites.

PSA aims to deliver results that exceed excellence, and will do whatever it takes to present perfection in a way that’ll achieve the highest standard possible. This devotion to its craft is shown particularly well in Aethos Ericeira. Though there were constraints going into the project, with PSA looking to restore an abandoned hotel, the team didn’t let this hinder their creative flair, and went on to be grateful for the challenges they faced. PSA had the chance to prove it was worthy of its award-winning title through its seamless marrying of traditional and modern, a technique that had been neglected prior to its involvement with the project. Its location was far too good to refuse, leading to PSA’s overwhelming commitment to seeing that this project was an awe-inspiring success. The team narrowed down the essential aspects that they sought to maintain, such as the traditional arches from the original architecture, and proceeded to develop solutions that would combine their ideas with the original foundations to create something spectacular. Now, Aethos Ericeira is a hotel that boasts stunning views, gorgeous interior design, and holds an overall aesthetic that’s both cohesive and contemporary. Every ounce of Aethos Ericeira shines with an astounding artistic flair, with a theming that perfectly honours its unique position. PSA carefully considered how best to take advantage of the area to produce a project that’s truly special, and has accomplished an unmatched feat in the completion of Aethos Ericeira. Thanks to the team’s innovation and quick thinking, no obstacles were given the chance to emerge during the project. PSA C approached the design from a problem-solving perspective, utilising forward-thinking and intuition to concoct a design that would be aesthetically appealing, all whilst conforming to the environment. The result is a hotel that’s really a cut above the rest, inviting a whole manner of guests from across the globe into its midst to enjoy a luxurious seaside getaway. And none of its intrinsic beauty could’ve been presented without the help of the talented professionals behind PSA. PSA, at its core, is an architectural studio that aims to impress. Regardless of the client, or the difficulties potentially posed by a project, PSA’s diligent team will eagerly accept any opportunity to further hone their creative prowess. This has led to it being heralded as the Most Innovative Contemporary Architecture Studio 2023 – Portugal, and we’re eager to see where its next project takes it.

The Up Studio wholeheartedly believes that thoughtful design can enhance people’s lives, all whilst operating in tandem with the environment, and this is effortlessly demonstrated by its two latest projects. Standing as the product of a young family’s desire to appreciate the sights of the sea, The Up Studio constructed the Harbor Hideaway. With its contemporary, custom design that encapsulates the meaning of modernity, the Harbor Hideaway presents The Up Studio’s avid dedication in a way that’s utterly undeniable. The team demonstrates their client-focused mindset through the implementation of a living area on the roof of the home, allowing the family to appreciate the views, without having to sacrifice functionality. It strikes the perfect balance between aesthetic and utility, something that The Up Studio strives to accomplish with every project. The Inside Out Cabana, a poolside living area, is yet another example of the team’s meticulous planning and inspired ideas. With a limited space available to them, the team was challenged with creating an area that not only fits into the small footprint, but does so with a combination of flair and E functionality. The solution was to utilise wall panels to allow for an indoor changing area, whilst keeping the external factors of the build accessible and full of social potential. Its compact but effective design lends itself to the astounding skillsets presented by every member of The Up Studio’s team. It seems there’s no project that The Up Studio wouldn’t be eager to tackle. And with an enthusiasm for the craft, in addition to a love for modern home architecture, The Up Studio has proven again and again that it’s the leading design studio for New York modern homes and northeast architecture. And with such an imaginative team ready to create projects that’ll last a lifetime, it’s clear that the only way is up for this superb design studio.

BUILD Q2 2023 10 Mar23018 ulia Milner, owner of ESSARC East Side Studio Architects, has loved the process of creation since she was a child. In adulthood, she pursued this passion and worked hard to obtain a bachelor’s degree in French and visual studies from Dartmouth College, as well as a master’s degree in architecture from Yale. Following this, Julia worked at award-winning design firms in Connecticut, New York, and Boston. As an adventurous spirit, Julia was keen to travel. She embarked on a bike trip through Europe to sketch and photograph inspiring places across the continent, which helped her realise her favourite aspects of architecture. On the ESSARC website, Julia is quoted as saying, “I realised how vital a sense of place is to our psyche – European towns are layered with culture and history that add meaning to our lives and inform the design of new buildings.” Shortly after she returned, Julia was encouraged to open her own office. Later, she travelled to Greece and Turkey to study classical and Middle Eastern architecture and was struck with the inspiration to write her first book, The Shepherd’s Song. Following her return from this trip, she moved to Arizona, where she worked on architectural projects, books, and paintings from a studio in a historic house with views of a pristine desert. After a decade, Julia returned to Massachusetts, where she began working in a beautiful studio with east-facing windows, flooding the room in light every morning and evoking creative thought. The morning has come to hold significant meaning Historic Preservation Architecture and Interior Design Based in Massachusetts, ESSARC East Side Studio Architects is an award-winning, servicefocused architectural design firm owned by Julia Milner, an experienced architect and landscape painter who collaborates with clients to create exceptional spaces. In the Homebuilder Awards 2023, ESSARC has won Best Historic Preservation Architecture and Interior Design Firm thanks to its impressive portfolio. In the wake of this success, we take a look at Julia’s experience and the services ESSARC offers. J

Q2 2023 BUILD 11 for Julia. She believes that the early hours of daylight are synonymous with clarity, regeneration, light, and collaboration. Now, Julia owns ESSARC East Side Studio Architects, named after east-facing windows and the associated morning sunlight. Specialising in high-end residential, senior living, and hospitality projects, the studio offers services encompassing several aspects of project completion, including planning, architecture, interior design, and historic preservation. For example, ESSARC offers clients pre-design guides and services to assist with the first steps of a project. With appropriate planning in these early stages, clients can ensure works do not stray from the set timelines and budgets. Good preparation is necessary for the execution of any architectural project, especially complex historic renovations and extensions. Planning ensures the best design is created, which is crucial for making sure the finished product meets expectations. Despite this, many professionals are eager to initiate the design process, so they skip the planning stage. Without planning, there is an increased likelihood that challenges will arise further down the line, when changes in direction are much more expensive. The studio provides a number of complimentary documents that guide clients through the process of selecting an architect, budgeting, and preparing for their project. Additionally, ESSARC specialises in the provision of a pre-design feasibility study called the “Story Board Needs Options and Review”. The study assesses the unique “story” of the project and determines any potential constraints before commitment is made. As part of this service, Julia conducts a thorough site visit and creates a comprehensive written report, including photos, planning/zoning reviews, and budget considerations. This allows clients to understand their options before they begin the expensive phases of the project, reducing risk. Working closely with clients, Julia loves to create sketches that bring ideas and dreams to life. By combining these unique visions with local context, she aims to celebrate The Poetry of Place™, which is the energy in the built environment that results from generations of people responding to the climate, materials, and culture of the local area. To infuse this into all of its project, ESSARC incorporates local materials and methods into its architectural designs, diminishing its carbon footprint. Whether renovating a historic building or creating a concept for a new structure, ESSARC maintains the belief that all buildings tell a story. The firm creates uplifting designs that seamlessly integrate into their surroundings. Julia explains, “As a landscape painter, I bring an interdisciplinary approach to siting a building harmoniously, thoughtfully creating indoor/outdoor relationships.” Detailed customer testimony online suggests a high level of satisfaction with Julia’s planning and design services. In their reviews, clients frequently refer to her friendly, personable, and helpful services, as well as her keen eye for colour. Additionally, many are impressed with her careful consideration of their desires and needs, through which she delivers designs that fit their visions and exceed their expectations. Furthermore, clients note that Julia is adept at addressing a variety of issues and challenges as they arise, coming up with innovative solutions in a timely manner. As well as this, in renovation projects, clients emphasise her remarkable ability to maintain the charm of the original properties while creating new spaces that suit the current needs of the occupants. A recent project that ESSARC has been involved in is the design of a senior living residence for assisted and memory care. The client, Benchmark Senior Living, was impressed with the design method used by the firm. The building was developed to convey a sense of wellbeing and belonging by incorporating stories and images from the town’s history into the details, décor, and art. Using architectural features, ESSARC infused the facility with life-giving intention through soaring ceilings, curved shapes, and bright colours chosen to bring vitality and joy. Furthermore, studies have shown that nature contributes to health and longevity, so ESSARC aimed to incorporate nature into the design. With large windows and an abundance of natural light, the building was designed to bring the outside into the building. The presence of circadian lighting encourages daytime alertness and restful sleep at night, decreasing the risk of residents falling over. The rapidly increasing number of inhabitants as well as the positive comments of residents and their families are a testament to ESSARC’s success with this project: “This doesn’t feel like assisted living, it feels like a boutique hotel!” As a result of its impressive portfolio of designs and the high level of customer satisfaction it delivers, ESSARC East Side Studio Architects has won Best Historic Preservation Architecture and Interior Design Firm, Massachusetts, in the Homebuilder Awards 2023. The firm continues to bring ideas and inspiration to life through the art of architecture, providing clients with beautiful residential spaces that suit their needs.
