Miami Penthouse

The design of this Miami Beach penthouse was approached with a singular goal:  creating a one of a kind jewel-box apartment, one worthy of the world class panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean afforded throughout the space.  From early planning, all options were on the table to reconfigure the space in any way necessary to maximize the livability and emphasize the open-plan living concept. The kitchen was relocated to have a more central presence in the living area, and the master suite repositioned in favor of a more distinct separation between public and private portions of the home. Through oversized entry doors (a repeating motif of custom fabricated blackened stainless steel and bespoke wire glass) attention is drawn to the recessed art niche, a polished stainless-steel frame carved into the otherwise monolithic concrete wall panels of the entry hall.  The plan is carefully and purposely aligned to carry visitors lineally into the home along this beautifully detailed entry hall, with an oversized picture window looking to the sea as a visual end point.
