Arrowstreet designed a new luxury resort for Mirbeau Inn & Spa situated on the Village Green in the award-winning mixed-use residential community of The Pinehills in Plymouth, Massachusetts— minutes away from the town center and the beach. The 50-room inn, bistro restaurant, and full-service spa is the second of Mirbeau’s resorts delivering the elegant comforts and residential feel of a private estate. The architecture is reminiscent of a French countryside chateau, reinforcing the boutique hotel’s unique brand of old world warmth and comfort. The wood-and-stone manor house echoes the natural beauty of the inn’s rustic surroundings. The Inn and Spa buildings are clustered around the opulent Monet inspired pond gardens, with exterior architecture, interior décor, and landscape design reminiscent of an estate in the countryside near Paris.

The design team challenged themselves to provide an immersive experience that would transport a guest to the French countryside without channeling Disney architecture. For our design to be successful, we had to organize the buildings in a way that offered an intimate experience that kept guests from ever feeling the full scale of the property. The organization of the site plan and buildings focuses over half the rooms on the signature gardens that are decorated in both the winter and the summer. Iconic elements like the turret and the chapel restaurant create distinctive memorable moments that create a sense that the property is a unique place, while the architecture supports the Mirbeau brand.
