Palm Beach conjures up vivid images of beautiful beaches, extravagant shopping, sprawling mansions, beautiful people, and historic architecture, but it would not be as iconic without John Volk’s architecture. Volk is one of Palm Beach’s premier “Society Architects”.  He is the architect behind some of Palm Beach’s most notable landmarks including the Royal Poinciana Plaza, the Beach Club, and the 1944 renovation of the Bath and Tennis Club.  Volk also designed homes for such notable families as Ford, Dodge, DuPont, Pulitzer, and Vanderbilt.

The Royal Poinciana Plaza is classic John Volk architecture, and is a charming example of his signature Palm Beach style. Built in the late 1950s, today the property stands a landmarked property. Arranged around two beautiful courtyards with outdoor furniture, palm trees and gardens, The Royal Poinciana Plaza provides a destination for guests to enjoy events, read the paper, sip a coffee, shop, or dine.
