Faena Versailles Classic - “My first encounter with Roy F. France and South Beach was in the early 1980s. I will never forget the silhouette of the derelict St. Moritz, the warm breeze, the electric night sky. It was full of expectation of all the beauty and personality that modern America could imagine, and a nod to an exotic European heritage.
With the Versailles I’ve been offered the opportunity to recapture that moment. It’s not enough to mine and regurgitate Art Deco. Built of cinder concrete and endless terraces, the materiality of the building in no way does justice to the air of fantasy and the embrace of a modern, hopeful future that is the true legacy of Roy F. France and the era of the original Versailles.“
- WILLIAM SOFIELD -
