CloudLake Resort | Malibu Master Planner

Resort Architect | Cloud Lake Resort | Malibu Master Planner | CloudLake, a riverfront resort with no lake in sight, is to be built as an “outside the gate” hospitality center to several adjacent theme and water parks. Brent ThompsonArchitects’s concept combines bold geometry and intimate human scale to create a place that has wide appeal to all sorts of people, a place that will extend their stays and encourage them to visit repeatedly. BTA based the project on San Antonio, Texas’ wildly successful Riverwalk, extensively researching that project to gain a thorough understanding of how it works and why people find it so attractive.

Riverwalk is a textbook example of a place people love, a place with the quality described by the latin phrase Genius Loci, a place with a magical quality that all recognize but few understand. The designers of BTA have spent their careers studying places with Genius Loci around the world in an effort to understand how that magical quality is achieved. Riverwalk achieves the magic, in part, by completely integrating water in the project. The water isn’t just something that can be seen, it is so close that people are immersed in its nearness. Riverwalk is all about the water: strolling by the water, dining by the water, enjoying music by the water, and riding boats on the water. The water is its magic.

CloudLake adopts this theme, fully integrating water with the space, and with the experience guests have when visiting CloudLake. CloudLake combines a Riverwalk like walk street with boutique hotels, a large five star hotel, shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues to create an ideal place for those visiting the neighboring theme parks to stay and to spend their evenings.

BTA achieves the magic of CloudLake by learning from Riverwalk. Observe, Analyze, Implement.
