Opened in 1929, Arizona Biltmore still sparkles with the old Hollywood glamour of the Roaring Twenties. The influences of Wright, who consulted on the hotel, can be seen throughout the property, such as the signature Prairie-style design.
“The building is iconic and known for its Wright influences, so staying true to this without copying or emulating it was important to us,” says PHX Architecture’s Erik Peterson, the architect who led the project. “Everything new was done with an organic inspiration, but also done with today’s cutting-edge technology. That is how Wright did design in his day….Nothing is timid, but instead bold."
“Wright never wanted his buildings to become museums, but instead, they were to be lived in, modified, and adjusted to how life changes over time,” the architect Peterson adds. “That is what makes living architecture and organic design.”
When considering a coating for material exposed to the conditions of a super-sized water park, choosing the unsurpassed corrosion protection hot-dip galvanizing offers along with the ability to appoint a custom color two-part epoxy, perfectly complimenting the beautiful surroundings of the Arizona Biltmore, made choosing the duplex coating a very simple one.
Knowing the enhanced durability, in conjunction with infinite savings due to the protracted service life, made the decision a very accomplished one. One could presume it was a WRIGHT decision, Frank Lloyd Wright, that is.
