Another mega project from Arquitectonica and Related Group that is set to be completed in 2019 One Brickell takes luxury living in Miami to a whole new level with three giant towers that will contain 1400 residential units and 249 hotel units! Nestled on the bank of the Miami River and in the heart of downtown Miami this trio of towers is like a mini-city in itself offering you everything one could dream of. Residents at these futuristic towers will have access to everything ranging from private beach frontage to 24-hour concierge services and access to the very best that Miami has to offer.
Designed by Oleg Drozdov the house is broadly divided into three individual units with each one having its own series of balconies and private terraces that melt into the common social zone at the heart of it all. The central living zone flows into the semi-open terrace and pool area that overlooks the generous garden outside. This ingeniously crafted terrace allows the homeowners to enjoy ‘outdoor living’ throughout the year and allows the adults in the house to keep an eye on the kids as they spend time in the garden.
A series of skylights courtyards and gardens along with the photovoltaic panels ensure that the home has a minimal carbon footprint by cutting down its dependence on artificial energy. Built to last the test of time a tight budget and time constraint forced the architects to come up with innovative solutions that cut back both on construction time and cost. The structure of the house itself acts as a pergola for the outdoor dining and barbeque area even as the garden and the small pool become an extension of the interior.
Draped in wood and stone the street façade of the house offers complete privacy even as the beautifully-lit ponds create an inviting and enchanting setting in the garden. The open plan living area with kitchen and dining plays second fiddle to the view outside as one is drawn in by the magnetism and ingenuity of this urban cabin!
The wooden staircase acts as a spatial feature by separating the kids’ wing of the home from the adult bedroom on the top level while adding sculptural beauty to the open living area on the ground floor. The stairwell also brings natural light to the basement level and acts as a common connecting thread between the various floors.
A series of sliding glass doors connect these large living spaces with the outdoors and with each home comprising three individual structures that separate the public areas from the private ones there is ample privacy for the homeowners. A second volume contains three bedrooms on the ground floor and the master suit on the top level while a third volume holds the utility areas kitchen and pantry.
Designed by paints a striking picture with its stone and glass lower level and a top level that is draped in wood. Clean straight lines and minimal aesthetics create a sense of refinement throughout the family residence with glass walls blurring the line between the interior and the garden.
