Inkanta Design Store in Miami Beach, Florida by NC-Office Architecture designed using AutoCAD

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

The project is a retail interior located at the 1111 Building on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. The space is defined by two walls which contain the display cases. The walls are inflected to engage the customer from the exterior and to provide an integrated display at the storefront. The kink within the walls increases the display surface area while at the same time making every portion of the store visible to the sales-person. The sales area is defined by stainless steel panels which are perforated in order to reduce the weight of the heavy steel as well as to create a pixilated light pattern.

Cafe Bustelo Gansevoort Hotel in Miami, Florida by NC Office Architect

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

The project is an interior build-out at the Gansevoort Hotel South in Miami Beach. The design seeks to emphasize the proportions of the shell by juxtaposing two distinct volumes. The space is divided longitudinally into a compressed mezzanine which contains the service areas, and a double-height volume which is defined by a wall of metal coffee cans. This strategy generates additional leasable square footage, while engaging the party wall condition through the use of side-diffused, artificial illumination.
