The Morris

The MorrisMiami Beach, Florida

The Morris is a visionary 24-unit mid-rise rental apartment building in Miami Beach’s urban core. The project seamlessly blends mid-century influences with contemporary living in the heart of the Palm View Historic District. Adapting to the surrounding environment and historical context, The Morris proposes a U-shape building massing that reinforces the continuous street line on 17th Street while being porous towards the residential neighborhood in the back. Strong continuous horizontal lines determined by the exterior balconies, planters, and trellises are facade-defining features, along with bronze-colored vertical railing, screens, and window mullions.

The Morris incorporates lush landscaping, gardens, and seating areas to provide additional privacy and buffering toward the neighboring properties. The building’s lobby fronts the main road, 17th Street; parking is concealed behind an active liner of uses. The design intends to create a welcoming ground floor environment for all residents that pedestrians, cars, or bicycles can easily access.

The units range from studios to 2 bedrooms, each with exterior balconies. Each unit is designed with ample natural light in mind, incorporating verdant vegetation to support biophilia. Each 4th-floor unit has private roof terraces connected. The project incorporates sea-level rise, sustainability, and resiliency criteria such as passive cooling, trellises and overhangs, resilient landscape, ground floor raised above flood elevation, and minimizing heat island effect.

The Mia Workforce Housing is located in the Normandy Isle district in Miami Beach. It was approved by the Design Review Board in October 22 and when completed will include 60 studio apartments organized in 3 floors as well as retail and parking on the ground floor. There is a dire need of workforce housing in Miami-Dade County that the pandemic has exacerbate. Mia will be the first project of its kind targeting dwellers with an income between 60% and 140% of the area’s median income. The project is targeted to be LEED Gold Certified. In terms of design, the ground floor sets-back the retail liner from the street expanding the walkways to engage street life while hiding the car parking spaces behind. Ample bicycle parking further invites engagement, and the small-scale shop are geared towards fulfilling the neighborhood needs. The architectural aesthetic is industrial in nature recalling containerized structures, this is further emphasized using painted metal cladding. On the upper levels, the repetitive nature of the units is broken in the façade by staggering the exterior balconies. The industrial aesthetic is carried through but with a different wall finish. The roof has a terrace to be used by the dwellers. The vibrant color scheme of the catwalks and retail buildings adds a local flair to the architectural ensemble recalling Miami Beach residential buildings and motels of the 50’s.

Coral Gables Addition

Coral Gables AdditionMiami, USA

The project entails an addition to an existing waterfront residence at the Sunrise Harbor neighborhood in Coral Gables. The existing residence is located in a 27,000-sf lot and includes 4-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom and ancillary outdoor and indoor spaces that add to approximately 4,237 sf.

The Sunrise Harbor neighborhood has undergone many changes in the last few years, becoming very eclectic in it styles as 60 and 70 modern homes with pitched roofs are intertwined with Mediterranean revival residences an also more contemporary homes with flat roofs and defined frontal arrangements. In fact, there are at least 4 prominent houses with flat roofs within a couple of blocks of the waterfront residence. These tend to have large glazing panels facing the street oftentimes double height, balconies and finishes either in stucco, stone, wood or painted metal. Landscape playing a prominent role in screening and providing privacy.

Our approach was to generate an interplay between old and new, taking the garage one story volume to establish an axis of symmetry to what happens on each side of it, existing to the right and new addition on the left. The addition respects the portico height establishing a strong horizontal line (datum) on the second story that visually carries through both volumes. To further emphasize the visual connection, the four portico columns are replicated in the addition, framing the new main entrance. The mass of the existing house is reproduced in the addition to act as a counterbalance in the symmetrical composition.

Sofi House

Sofi HouseMiami, USA

SoFi House is a mid-size residential project in the prestigious South of Fifth neighborhood, Miami Beach. It features four beach houses distributed along a lot fronting Washington Avenue. The Historic Preservation Board approved the project as it included the complete renovation and relocation of one of the last remaining wood cottages in the city. Each house, of approximately 2,600 sf, has living and dining areas, a kitchen, a pantry, three bedrooms, three or four bathrooms, two parking spaces, a roof-top garden, and terraces with individual pools. The design skillfully sets back from the street the four-story building massing to minimize its visual impact and carve a space for the cottage, which is adjoined to one of the units. While the south façade has strategically placed windows, the north side is defined by sliding glass walls from floor to ceiling and long balconies to take advantage of the indirect natural light. Natural materials such as white oak wood floors, stone countertops, and tropical landscapes further accentuate an environment prioritizing comfort and luxury in each unit.

Meridian Residence

Meridian ResidenceMiami Beach, USA

The single-family residence is located in a quiet section of Meridian Avenue, directly across Miami Beach’s Golf Club. The ground floor is designed as a large garden, while the residential program is on the second floor. Elevating the house has several advantages, providing uninterrupted golf course views above the tree-tops, allowing for better cross ventilation as it takes advantage of the natural breezes at a higher elevation, and providing large terraces that serve as extensions of the rooms to entertain guests or relax. Florida’s mid-century modern architecture inspires the design with its generous overhangs and exterior window louvers to filter the direct sun, clean horizontal lines, and operable walls. Elevating the residence provided an opportunity to design a continuous garden experience at ground level, planned with lush vegetation, terraces, and water features that develop partly under cover. It is a residence designed to entertain and enjoy the unique setting in Miami Beach.
