Quiksilver Palm Desert Resort

Palm Desert, California

Embodying the essence of sports apparel giant Quiksilver’s brand, this unique, immersive sport resort has been designed to bring the surf culture to the masses. This property comprises a 650-key resort hotel, 144-unit Residence Club, action sports camp, amphitheater, retail and entertainment district, and an extensive surf and watersports facility. The design is fluid in its form, taking inspiration from natural erosion patterns created by water runoff from desert foothills. Structures resemble a series of landforms, with pools and resort amenities envisioned as protected oases adjacent to canyon walls.
