During its inaugural year, the office handled projects such as Compass Pointe (Seagrove Beach, Fla.), Destin Commons (Destin, Fla.), Summer House (Ft. Walton Beach, Fla.), Beach Colony Resort (Navarre Beach, Fla.), Palms Resort (Destin, Fla.) and Evangeline Downs Hotel & Event Center (Lafayette, La.).
