Ponce de Leon Courtyard
St. Augustine, Florida
It was an honor to be selected for the renovation of the Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine, Florida. HFA’s design for the Courtyard embraces the tropical, exotic, and colorful character of the original 19th century Courtyard.
In addition to the strategically selected and placed landscape, lighting was introduced to reflect the “fairy lights (candles)” that once traced the outline of the Courtyard landscape in the early hotel days.
The Ponce de Leon Hotel is a National Historic Landmark being cared for by Flagler College. Flagler College converted the main hotel into administrative offices and a residence hall in 1968.
