The Streamsong Resort in Bowling Green, Florida, USA was designed in 2014 by the Alfonso Architects practice with a design that is inspired by the paleontological history of the place featuring a vertical stacking program.

The lodge has four layers: the Submersion, below the water, the Bank where the water and land come together, the Canopy, in the shape of a sheltered aviary home above the trees, and the Sky. The Submersion hosts the AcquaPietra spa, the SottoTerra fine dining venue and the Breezeway with tree columns emerging to connect the three spaces.

There are seven therapeutic pools in the grotto spa and the other areas feature environments suitable for intimacy as well as discovery. The Bank contains the public spaces and the main lobby built with reclaimed materials to evoke the flora of the land.

The Canopy contains 216 guest rooms and suites with paintings created by the architect, while the Sky is a patio with a roof lounge called Fragmentary Blue as the Robert Frost poem.
