Sustainability

Inspired by the 600-foot stretch of pristine beach just outside our doors, the design and ethos behind 1 Hotel South Beach push beyond the typical Art Deco aesthetic. This sustainable oasis emulates that natural world through the intentional use of reclaimed woods and recovered materials. Every design detail deeply aims to honor the ocean along with the native surfers who pioneered unassuming shacks in this seaside community.
