THE VILLAGES, Fla. (August 26, 2020) – When guests walk into the newly opened Brownwood Hotel & Spa in The Villages, they might not even believe they’re in Florida anymore.
The hotel transports guests on arrival with rich woodwork, pops of luxe color and pattern and rustic touches, all inspired by the Florida cowboy era. JK2 Scenic, a specialty contractor with deep experience at Florida’s theme parks, added the “wow” detailed features throughout the hotel that helped bring this unique vision to life.
“What makes this project so special are the details,” said Julie Holmes, president and principal of JK2 Scenic. “That’s what we specialize in at JK2 Scenic. From decorative paneling with herringbone features to soaring chandelier crowns, we love adding all the intricate details that make a project stand out. We are proud that visitors of all ages will get to experience this property, while making memories with their friends and family.”
JK2 Scenic’s “wow” work started where guests themselves start—at the lobby entrance. The company built out the space with expansive wood paneling, trim and gorgeous ceiling details, as well as added the custom millwork check-in desks and cabinets.
In the lobby bar, JK2 Scenic fabricated the luxe walnut bar with cowhide inserts, the intricate bar back with cabinet doors featuring the Brownwood Hotel’s metal insignia, and the wooden accents, including the ceiling, trim and paneling.
JK2 Scenic was also responsible for the wood detailing in all common area hallways, meeting spaces, the gym, spa, treatment rooms and more. This includes all the detailed columns throughout the hotel that are trimmed and inset with a variety of materials; imposing, 20-foot Eastern White Pine doors to the ballroom; striking blue and white test kitchen cabinetry; and gorgeous decorative ceiling details throughout.
DPR Construction served as the general contractor for the project, which opened in March. The Brownwood Hotel & Spa project builds on JK2 Scenic’s expertise. The company has completed extensive work at large resorts in the Orlando tourism district, including the common area spaces of the Margaritaville Resort Orlando and the Loews Royal Pacific Resort.
