Project Description

Gran Destino at Disney’s Coronado Springs

Custom aluminum architectural accent facade, interior metal detail

The Gran Destino Tower is a hotel at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. The project is located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and is the product of a reimagined collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali from the 1940s.

The building’s exterior features Poma value-engineered and manufactured metalwork which enhances the primary façades’ fenestration. This metal feature is described endearingly by Poma engineers and fabricators as the Linguine Wall.

The exterior metalwork by Poma also includes massive arched metal overlays at the ground floor windows. The architectural metals were painted using PPG Duranar technology in a custom copper finish to endure the humid, salty air and high-UV climate in Florida.

The interior features interior laser-cut perforated metal designs throughout the lobby, individual floors and includes the metal accents for the building’s top-floor 5-star restaurant and bar.

The motifs and patterns used throughout the new building reference the collaborative artwork began by Walt Disney and Salvador Dali in 1945, which was completed in 2003.
