Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

Location: Orlando, Florida
Client: Universal Studios

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, became reality when the design team observed the property sat at the terminus to the Universal Resort water canal system; and more than twenty feet above the canal water level. This led to creating a real waterfall to maximize the drama inherent in the topographic variation, in a geography which virtually has none. The Sapphire Falls spill into the canal leading to other Universal resorts, City walk and themed attractions.

Site Size: 35 acres
