Glass Miami Beach

Glass Miami Beach. Ultra-luxury beachfront condos on Miami Beach for saleGlass Miami Beach is one of South Beach’s new iconic condo towers. This boutique, six-star luxury building offering only ten finely-appointed residences over the 18 floors; including a stunning three-story penthouse. Each apartment is a glass-enclosed home, occupying its own, private floor, with views in 360 degrees. Glass Miami sits on Ocean Drive, in the South-of-Fifth neighborhood, directly across the street from the world-famous beaches of Miami Beach.

Glass Miami has been designed in direct response to its location, context and environment. The tower is designed to dematerialize as it rises, with its exterior, almost entirely disappearing  into the atmosphere due to its composition of patterned glass.

Glass Miami reflects, captures and abstracts the natural landscape of sand, sea and sky whilst retaining the essence of place through its architectural design, its materials, surface textures and tonal color.

Experiences make us see things in different ways, which is why the gradient colors of Glass Miami shift thematically from deep to shallow waters as your eyes travel upward from the horizontal line. Inside the building, the elevator contains an interactive installation, designed by artist Ivan Toth Depeña along with architect, Rene Gonzalez, which mimics the transition from water to sky.

The mirrored walls at each entry at Glass Miami were put there to reflect the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Whilst each foyer also contains a custom ceiling combining a latex surface and a programmable lighting system designed to evoke the star-lit canopy of both urban and rural skies.

A special draw will be the full-floor layouts at Glass Miami that will give residents panoramic views of the ocean, Miami Beach, the bay and downtown Miami and the flexibility to customize their floor plans. The architects and developers decided against building three times as many units and opted for a less is more solution. It has paid off!

South of Fifth

Sky, sand and sea are the backdrop for South of Fifth’s unique melding of the natural world and urbanity. The beach, marina park and port are magnets for spending time outdoors. The location is just blocks from the heart of ‘SoBe’ and the Art Deco District and makes for easy access to Miami Beach’s rich cultural offerings, the symphony, ballet, the world-class shopping, art galleries and award winning restaurants. It is hard to imagine a better place.

Architect - Rene Gonzalez Architect

There’s a good chance you’ve already heard of Rene Gonzalez and his firm, Rene Gonzalez Architect. If that’s the case, then you may well share his taste for subtle contemporary details. Or the way he intentionally blurs the boundaries between the man-made and the natural landscape (what he describes as a ‘design conversation’). Or maybe you enjoy the tactility of his work and how his surprising choice of materials heightens your senses and makes you think about places in new and exciting ways. Perhaps you’ve seen him mentioned in Wallpaper* magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest… Or maybe you own a copy of the contemporary design book, Four Florida Moderns, and love the examples of the firm’s work that you saw. What you may not realize is that Rene has been included in more than 150 national and international publications, receiving Metropolitan Home magazine’s Home of the Year Award for design excellence in addition to being honored by Conde Nast’s House & Garden as one of 50 international designers that represent the future of design. His unique approach has certainly not gone unnoticed by his peers: Rene is the only Miami architect to receive a National American Institute of Architecture Design Award in the last 10 years for a project in South Florida. He is also the first architect in 50 years to be twice honored for Miami projects (in 2011 for Alchemist and in 2006 for Karla). Then there are his two National AIA Honor Awards, a Florida AIA Award, and a total of ten Miami AIA Awards, including the H. Samuel Kruse Silver Medal for Design in 2012 and the Firm of the Year award in 2011. If that wasn’t praise enough, he was twice nominated for the Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s National Design Award in Architecture.

Then again, it is possible that you have never heard of Rene at all. You might not know that his team was responsible for the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation building (a jewel in the urban landscape, with lush vegetation depicted on its glistening glass tile facade), or the two Alchemist boutiques on Lincoln Road (one perched in the sky like a floating glass cloud, the other an insulated box nestled into the ground floor). You might not have seen the home on Indian Creek that captures, filters and reflects the water, radiant sun and meditative moon, but you may well have heard that it subsequently became Miami’s most expensive residence.

Whether you’re aware of Rene’s work or not, the whole of Miami has been consciously or unconsciously drawn into his ‘design conversations’ – engaging our senses, and prompting us to think differently about our surroundings.

Ray Jungles – Landscape Architect

Words can’t really do justice to Raymond’s work. You have to see it for yourself. You have to feel it for yourself. After all, that is the plan. Or rather, the design

From their loft-style studio overlooking the Miami River, Raymond Jungles Inc. has been meticulously bringing their sensuous outdoor spaces to life since 1981. In that time, their work has earned them 35 different design awards.

During his time at the University of Florida, Raymond’s vision was awakened by the work of Brazilian landscape architect, Roberto Burle Marx. And whilst Marx went on to become Raymond’s friend and mentor, RJI have continued to push the boundaries of landscape design, creating timeless, inspirational places that bring us all closer to the natural world. By posing the question “What should it be?” rather than “What could it be?” Raymond exploits (and capitalizes on) the sculptural potential of nature, allowing his elements to define spaces through their innate shapes and forms. In other words, he gives nature a platform to surprise and inspire us.
