Mixed-Use and Retail
Influenced by Texas modernism, SB Architects’ design for the development created an exciting golf and resort experience for advanced players and those new to the game, and everyone in between, through the introduction of “boutique experiences” located throughout the 50-acre resort development.
Throughout the pedestrian-focused property, the architectural design is warm, approachable, and contemporary to reflect the future-thinking approach of the development. Distinctive massing, courtyards, and layered natural materials were utilized to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The use of stone, large overhangs, wood detailing, and ironwork all work together to create a modern contemporary feel.
Guests are welcomed into the lobby lounge, which features the front desk/concierge, a grand stone fireplace, and specialty golf retail, before moving through to the lobby lounge bar, which is bookended by a library bar at one end, and a small coffee bar at the other.
The pedestrian-friendly environment is centered around the sport of golf but thoughtfully programmed as the Texas version of a boardwalk, with activities and events along the retail corridor that are designed to be equally engaging to non-golfers.
The resort is slated to become a leading destination for golf, providing an unparalleled experience for all visitors. In addition to the luxurious guest rooms, the property offers private golf villas with dramatic views of two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by legendary designers, Beau Welling and Gil Hanse.
Additionally, the resort features a lighted 10-hole short course and two-acre putting green, a Lounge by Topgolf, PGA Frisco Coaching Center, and a practice facility anchored by a clubhouse and entertainment district. The result is a development that provides a full deck of offerings, providing multiple layers of different experiences — ones that can last for an evening out or for a 10-day stay.
“We set out to create an environment and destination that not only caters to the world-class golf aficionados, but also to the general public to whom golf might not be the draw. The Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) region is thriving with innovation and optimism, this portfolio-defining project galvanized SB Architects to launch our Dallas office. With a marquee set of clients in Texas, we’re excited to continue to pursue local opportunities.”
With golf as the focus of the design, the rooms at the Omni PGA Frisco Resort are positioned to prioritize views of the championship courses.
