14-Story Tower in the Miami by Studio Gang Architects

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Studio Gang Architects is pleased to release its design for a 14-story tower that will rise in the vibrant Miami Design District. Supplemented by amenities such as a rooftop lounge and swimming pool, as well as retail at ground level, the tower’s 76 residential units are designed to take advantage of panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. The exterior of the building produces habitable spaces that function as a contemporary “Florida Room,” historic to the surrounding Buena Vista neighborhood. These shaded, open-air rooms provide both a thermal buffer for the interior and an outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining. The facade architecture demonstrates Studio Gang’s principle of exo-spatial high-rise design in which the inside extends to the outside in a dynamic spatial arrangement. Targeting LEED Gold, the project will incorporate performance features such as energy-saving solar shading and a rainwater collection system.

The design and creation of a whimsical and sophisticated environmental installation at the site of the entertainment venue Orchid.


The installation is an extension of the performance. A “Garden of Pleasure” starts at the initial view of the gateway location and continues to the peripheral fence. It culminates in the areas surrounding the “spiegeltent” and welcomes spectators before and after each performance. Several factors are considered in the design of the environmental installation of the Orchid venue. The aesthetics of the traditional “spiegeltent”, the iconic fences of nomadic circuses, and the essence of the venue, located in the celebrated Miami Design District, all contribute to the elegant and innovative installation.

Tent Pile in Miami by formlessfinder

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: formlessfinder 

Formlessfinder’s Tent Pile brings an intensely architectural intervention to Design Miami/, inventing a new building typology to provide shade, seating, cool air, and a space to play for the city’s public. The design practice, co-founded by Julian Rose and Garrett Ricciardi in 2010, approaches new projects with an interest in the specifics of geography — closely examining the spatial, social, and physical conditions of the location with which their structure will interact. They prioritize the use of available materials, committing to deploy them in ways that allow for reuse, an approach that produces what they refer to as “an architecture that can go from nothing to something and back again.

Coral Gables Residence in Miami, Florida by Touzet Studio

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Article source: Touzet Studio

The “City-side” façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the larger, main volume is clad in honed limestone. The mask is penetrated by only two openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Very little of the house is visible from the street – even the thrust of the sculptural roof is hidden from view.

Article source: Mellet & Human Architects

Mellet & Human Architects designed a previous house in South Africa for this client, who again asked the firm for a design on an exclusive waterfront lot in Bay Point, Miami. It is situated in a well-established gated community with easy waterway access to Biscayne Bay. Due to scarcity and of land here, the request was that full use be made of the development rights on the property. The design also had to conform to the strict hurricane and flood level building codes set by the City of Miami.

At the extension of the axis of the fifth avenue, pier museum becomes the ending of the urban space above the sea. The typology of building expresses the conversion and interaction of spatial energy. Simulating the natural growth, along the view toward the seascape in distance, the structure stretch from the beach end to the sea, converts the city space formed by street to a floating seascape terrace, planar pier evolutes to an organic structure, and provides the free path of promenade above the sea level.
