“Do you like what we have done to the place? was Richard´s greeting accompanied by a big grin”
When we first met on what felt like a disaster movie set a few weeks after the storm. Since then, its been surprisingly fun exploring Bitter End’s 64 acres as we envision the future. Almost fifty years of physical structures may have been destroyed but BEYC’s sense of place, spirit of fun and its essential beauty are absolutely intact. Our walks have given us a very clear picture of what is at the heart of Bitter End – and it certainly isn’t anything that Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma had in mind.
Our design approach at Simplemente Madera is focused on getting back to the basics of craft and simplicity. Rebuilding this special place is about creating the places and spaces where Bitter End can be Bitter End – not taking itself too seriously, in touch with its spectacular surroundings and quite serious about “messing around on the water”. It’s a fabulous mission to take the history and spirit and create an exciting new chapter. There are going to be things you will remember fondly and a lot of new architecture inspired by Bitter End’s spirit, but in the end it will feel incredibly fresh and sweetly familiar at the same time.”
