Besides its prime seafront place in Miami Beach, the value of this residence is also given by its pure but sumptuous design. Sumptuousness is not necessarily about excess, it is about style, elegance and balance in this case. Created by rGlobe Architecture, the residence is erected on two floors and consists of two intersecting wings. The major wing is oriented parallel to the sea, in order to create sea views for all the rooms. In front of this wing there is an infinity pool which seems to be overflowing straight into the sea. The second wing intersects the main one generating two distinct structures. The greatest component is at the back of the property, on the street side. The other, which appears to push its way to the beach, cantilevers towards the front of the residence generating a spectacular master bedroom. The ground floor of this wing is detached from the rest of the home and it represents the garage and a technical space. The second floor that sits on best is connected to the principal wing by a bridge with glass balustrades.
The facades are treated in 3 main components. The garage box and the entrance gate are made in a see-through wood structure, even though the major property is concrete and glass. The white painted concrete creates mainly boxes and frames that are then filled with glazed walls, doors and windows.
We see extremely clearly the concrete frames at the front facade. Inside the principal concrete frames we have secondary black metal frames that create the dynamic and rhythm of the house.
The wing at the back of the home is connected to the main residence by a covered bridge protected by glass balustrades. This a bit far more isolated space creates an independent guest suite,with its personal kitchenette.
The wonderful kitchen overlooks the sea. The mat white cabinets are dressed up in a thick layer of greyish marble. The suspended hood is a marble black developing out of the ceiling. Its heaviness disappears due to its suspended position, which makes it appear like floating in the air.
The carved out wooden staircase is the masterpiece of the house. It spirals up filtering the light at the prime and making a visual partition in between the entrance gallery and the rest of the open space.
Stained white marble is the material of selection for the master bathroom as nicely. It panels the walls full-height, making a precious background for the classical freestanding bathtub. The vanity block is produced of two washbasins that face each other and that share the identical double-faced ceiling suspended mirror.
