Forrest Daniell is a Principal of Forrest Daniell & Associates, P.C., an architectural firm in business since 1997. He specializes in resort architecture, including high-rise condominiums, hotels, restaurants, and retail. Forrest has designed numerous high-rise condominiums along the Gulf Coast, including 18 completed towers stretching from Perdido Key, Florida, to Gulfport, Mississippi. During the time he has worked on the coast, he has carefully studied the effects of hurricanes, most notably Georges in 1998, Ivan in 2004, and Katrina in 2005.
Forrest is also experienced with various types of commercial architecture, including educational, medical, office, banking, municipal, and assisted living projects. He has built his firm through a mix of competence, listening, and being easy to work with.
Perhaps the best example of the unique design style that has culminated from these experiences is a high-rise condominium project in Orange Beach, Alabama, called Turquoise Place. The two luxury towers are the largest multi-family residential project in the state of Alabama, and has been featured on the cover of several publications including Condo Owner Magazine, U.S. Glass, and U.S. Architecture.
Forrest is a licensed architect in six states including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Wyoming. He received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Texas A&M University in 1986 and a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1995.
Forrest has been married to his wife, Emma, for 33 years and they have four children, Ethan, Josiah, Emalyn and Judson. His hobbies include cycling, kayaking and camping.
