Well Brickell Heights just might be the answer to your dream Miami condo that combines work party and relaxation in an effortless manner. Located at 850 South Miami Avenue this skyscraper is set to take shape by early 2017 and promises much more than comfortable living and amazing views.
As is the norm in most contemporary homes it is the ground level that holds the open living area kitchen dining room and the home office while the basement contains the wine room bedroom and other utility areas. The master bedroom and bathroom along with three additional bedrooms sit on the top level and enjoy lovely views of the garden and the landscape beyond.
The idea behind the extension was to enlarge the living space and alter the existing floor plan of the house and to move the dining area and family room into the new structure. Concrete and glass were the materials used to shape this seemingly minimal and polished new addition with the sliding glass doors and large floor-to-ceiling windows inviting the landscape indoors.
The 200-year-old Spanish country house is nestled on a small mountain on the scenic northern shore of the island and the revamped structure makes the most of its location by offering unabated views of the landscape distant coastline and beyond. On the outside it is fruit trees and a lush green garden that drape you in a cloak of natural goodness and offer complete privacy while the interior brings together contrasting textures and finishes that create a unique relaxing setting.
The house moves away from the usual form of stylish contemporary residences and uses a series of large wooden decks terraces bridges and walkways to create an interior that is as much outdoorsy as it is sheltered and cozy! One feels both connected with the elements and protected from them at the same time with the beautiful indoor-outdoor interplay of the structure crafted from wood metal and glass. It is the lower level that contains the living area dining space and kitchen along with a single bedroom and storage area. It is the open top level that holds the master bedroom along with additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
The idea of the simple and uncomplicated cube is the image that most contemporary homes exude. With clean lines and rigid geometry there is not much to write home about as you look at many of these mundane structures.
The dashing home is essentially a window into two different natural ecosystems and its designers Benjamin Garcia Saxe did their best in trying to create a breezy residence that invites in both of these lovely backdrops.
