Description:
Design for Half Moon Bay Hotel on Montego Bay in Jamaica. Low structure sweeps across width of illustration board: main volume runs almost perpendicular to viewer and has shallow-sloped roof whose over at right supported by wood beams and tresses. From this volume extends a covered carport with similar roof, possibly in glass or other translucent material, and supported by slender inverted tripods. To the left of this, a retaining wall extends to the edge of the picture plane, half-concealing a perpendicular wing with lower, similar roof and no overhang at front. At center, a more interior garden wall with regular, diamond-like apertures. Landscape is lush with sod, shrubbery, palms, and deciduous trees. Circular driveway. Signed “S C Reese” in graphite at lower right.
