Located along Collins avenue in Miami Beach, this apartment boasts beautiful views of the sea, which the design aimed to frame and use as an integral part of each space. The client requested a design that married beauty with comfort and functionality; a residence that was modern but also warm, cozy and welcoming.

The layout was completely modified to create a more open concept with the intent of making the interiors feel larger and lighter. Service areas such as kitchen and bathrooms were placed towards the inside, leaving dwelling areas such as living room and bedrooms with direct access to the balconies and views. The relocation of the kitchen opened up the entry perspective; allowing one to experience the entire space as one enters; with the ocean as a backdrop. A perimeter ceiling with cove lighting and strategically placed recessed lighting allowed the illumination of the interior while maintaining as much height as possible, and also provided a nice accent. The combination of the lighting, higher ceilings and a new, more open concept allows the residence to feel bigger and lighter. Complementing the use of espresso and rich wood tones, the furniture throughout feels sophisticated yet inviting. The living room is refined in muted tones where iconic furniture pieces, custom cabinetry, and architectural furnishings give way to the striking art in blue and green tones. The dining room feels like a private setting off the main living room where custom millwork adds storage and display area meeting halfway with a mirrored wall. The dining table and surrounding dining chairs in contrasting leather envelop the intimate setting. The open kitchen features contemporary counter seating adding additional places to sit, gather, and entertain. Neutral tones, natural elements, soft textures and layers of plush fabrics compose the design of the primary suite that overlooks the ocean. A spa-like experience was designed for the primary bath, where a floating tub is semi-enclosed in a glass shower with wood framing.
