Our project at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach, Florida is a 6k sqft penthouse that sits atop an adaptive reuse building & provides captivating views. We have created a design for our clients that is modern & elegant, honoring Piero Lissoni’s architectural vision for the building. Adapting the former hospital to our clients’ needs has posed interesting challenges & opportunities for our team.

We dropped the 15’ ceilings to 12’ to hide the mechanicals & provide a homier atmosphere. To bring “Miami modern” to the space, we are using exquisite woods & stones & are incorporating custom millwork throughout. The neutral color palette frames 360 views of water & sky & is warmed with layers of texture including custom rugs, custom headboards, upholstered furniture, book matched marble, & accessories. Our clients are truly dream clients & have said yes to some of the industry’s best including Minotti, ARCA, Holly Hunt, Atelier, KREON, Ornare, Boffi, & more. The tech is fully integrated & a home theater will feature 16 screens. We've furnished the generous outdoor spaces & are coordinating with a landscaping co. to create a vegetable garden & gardenia plantings on 3 terraces.
