Villa Allegra, Miami Beach by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design

 
February 21st, 2011 by Susan Smith

Chad Oppenheim of OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design’s designs, although not limited to Miami, are mainly concentrated in and around Miami. His influence is being felt most in the Design District and Uptown.

Architect:        OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design, Miami, Fla.

Scope: 9,000 SF private residence. Architecture/Interior design

Location: Miami Beach, Florida

Project Team: Chad Oppenheim, Juan Calvo, Giovana Henao, Leslie Abraham, Rodrigo Londoño, and Roger Placencia

Multiple rooms, both interior and exterior, have been added to a non-descript, one-story home transforming it into a receiver of Miami’s tropical climate. While the effect is striking, minimal alterations were made to the existing structure of Villa Allegra. The house is entered through a 20’x30’x30′ volume where a reflecting pool and oculus align to activate the space with reflection and luminance. A large room organizes the house into private and public realms.

A 60’x20’x20′ volume, at the rear of the home provides enclosure for outdoor living. A large circular column contains an outdoor shower open to the sky. The second floor contains a secluded courtyard garden, off the master bedroom, for private activities. The project provides a flexible infrastructure for the participation and enjoyment of the pleasures of life.

Tremendous spaces with oversized windows overlook the pool and canal.
