Ventana Big Sur Big Sur, California

Ventana Big Sur

Ventana Big Sur, the renowned five-star resort on 160 forested acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean, underwent a large-scale renovation before formally reopening in the fall of 2017. BFS Landscape Architects was brought on-board to reconfigure and modernize a variety of their exterior spaces. The expanded ocean-view patio at The Sur House Bar accentuates breathtaking views of the Pacific and surrounding forest for diners, and also improves circulation and functionality for restaurant staff. The natural materials palette and contemporary planting design complements Big Sur’s storied meeting of land and sea.

BFS also reworked the pool deck space with an infinity edge spa looking toward the hills of Big Sur and a terraced organic garden that allows kitchen staff to grow produce onsite. The transformation of a parking lot into a sweeping lawn space provides the perfect setting for weddings and other large-scale gatherings.
