Renzo Piano, NA Building Workshop’s first residential project in the United States is coming up in Miami, on the city’s North Beach. Pritzker Prize winning Italian architect Renzo Piano has collaborated with interior architects Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI) and landscape firm West 8 to design the luxury condominium “Eighty Seven Park.” The architects conceptualized the project as a “coastal sanctuary” floating above North Shore Park’s lush landscape featuring a fluid design to “blur the line between imagination and craftsmanship.” The building appears simple in form and motif, with an emphasis on intricate attention to detail, noted ArchDaily.
“Eighty Seven Park” offers 66 residences in the configuration of one bedroom to five bedroom units. Wrap-around balconies and large glass doors frame the panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean, North Shore Park, and Miami skyline. A variety of amenities including two swimming pools, a relaxation spa, and a wine cellar complement the residential scheme.
Shells, pebbles, leaves, and grasses find their way in the nature-inspired palette for the interiors. Venetian terrazzo floors and light oak flooring evoke the white sand of Miami beaches and the aged sea grape leaves respectively.
Denis Montel, Artistic Director of RDAI, says: “The palette created for this project was inspired by the surrounding natural elements of North Beach. Capitalizing on the architectural vision of Renzo Piano Building Workshop, we wanted owners of this building to feel that they were one with nature from their first step inside.”
A two-acre private park with gardens, terraces, lounges, and an outdoor pavilion along with a series of public and semi-public spaces designed by West 8 add a touch of lush to the residences.
