Background
Site DescriptionThe construction of this Mediterranean Revival style Bath & Tennis Club commenced around 1925. It sits on a spit of land in Palm Beach, FL, where the fabled Providencia ran aground in 1878, spilling 20,000 coconuts and inspiring the barrier island's name. Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Hutton formed the club, scouted its new location, and commissioned Austrian architect Joseph Urban, who gleaned inspiration from projects he had worked on in Austria, Russia, and Egypt. According to Mrs. Hutton, 'It is the first cabana club in this country.' The dedication of generations of prominent American families has and will continue to ensure the Bath & Tennis Club's importance in Palm Beach society and the island's architectural legacy.
Project DescriptionRestoration of the Bath & Tennis Club began in 2008 and was completed in 2011. That year, CyArk came and scanned the site with a Canon EOS 50D. Architect Keith Spina oversaw the restoration, which addressed structural deficiencies in the building itself and on the beach level. Kemble Interiors used Joseph Urban's original designs and color schemes as reference points for the decor. The Bath & Tennis Club received the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach's prestigious Ballinger Award in 2011 which commemorates a restoration or renovation that best exemplifies the traditions of Palm Beach's original houses and the architects who designed them.
