Sanctuary MimoMiami, USA

Sanctuary Mimo is an adaptive reuse project in Miami’s vibrant MIMO District. This significant project by BBAmiami revitalizes the historic Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, converting it into a dynamic office and event venue for Front of the House (FOH). Preserving the church’s Sub-Tropical modernist architectural elements, including the tower’s stone treatment and façade fenestration, were considered and balanced against the new program’s needs of a 14,000 sf event space and support and office spaces. A new outdoor courtyard surrounded by a lush landscape creates an inviting environment for guests to enjoy. The harmonious blend of a historic structure with contemporary uses transforms the place into a compelling urban sanctuary.
