The Florida Keys have been infamous for their laissez-faire attitude,the lesser known fact is that The Keys have long been seen as the Mecca of sport fishing. Yet with Key West being the jewel in the crown of The Keys, this emporium creates a new sports fishing hub for all things fishing and food related and converge the character of the area in a new home on Stock Key. Local vernaculars utilise passive systems to help minimise the effects of the oppressive Floridian heat and humidity. A developed study through the Cracker Style heavy shaded typology, the development of the Spanish Eclectic style of Spanish origins, and the Key West archetype allowed the materiality and composition of my project to arise and thus create a building that combines the theatre of the fishing with the pastiche cherry picking of a Disneyland-esque architecture.
