On the westernmost tip of Galveston Island, the Pointe West Resort is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and the salt marshes and inlets of Galveston Bay on the other. Phil Pokorny has designed The Yacht Club, a centerpiece and landmark amenity for the community.
The raised base of the 25,000 s.f. building provides convenient covered parking while elevating the structure above hurricane storm-surge levels. The inland side stairway is designed as a lighthouse element, providing a landmark for both resort guests and the boating community.
