Brown Jordan Flagship – Interiors

Building Area: 8,900 SF
Building Status: Completed

Having once been populated by Dade County pine trees where the building sits, this 8,000 SF high-end luxury retail space incorporates the material, salvaged from a neighboring building, in a series of floating ceilings and details. By blurring the boundary between interior and exterior, interior spaces become garden-like in order to effectively exhibit Brown Jordan’s outdoor furniture. An expansive roof terrace above features the company’s line of outdoor kitchens and creates platform for unexpected views of the Design District.

2018 – Robb Report

As one of the most important rooms in a home, a good bathroom has always been a key selling point for any property.

Ransom SAP 1 & 2

Area : 13.8 acres
Status : Completed 2013-2016

As the local Architect, our role was to ensure the design from the planners (Bowie Gridley) fit into the rich history and legacy of the historic Ransom Campus. We did the historical research and developed the palette and character booklet for the property. Alongside the rest of the Ransom Everglades School Campus Master Plan Team, we assisted in the process associated with the development of the Special Area Plan and its submittal to the City of Miami. We worked collaboratively and successfully with Bowie Gridley who authored the Master Plan and program to get the necessary SAP approvals.

As advisors to the team on design, we also created a site BIM Model, all the site sections of the site, and the historical research and report. Touzet Studio photographed and assembled the documentation to help establish the palette of materials and lists of architectural characteristics that the City required be a part of the SAP. These SAP documents serve to act as a guideline for future development of the Ransom Site. For the SAP 2 of La Brisa, we participated in multiple meetings and advised on appropriate development sites and strategies as the local Architect.

Design District Retail “The Weave”

Building Area : 5,000 SF
Building Status : Unbuilt

This small retail infill building was designed to replace an existing carpet and rug shop in the Design District.

The design of the rainscreen concrete façade (unbuilt) was inspired by the weaving of the carpets and rugs that had been the client’s business for over 20 years. We thought it would be a nice way to weave in the stories of the past shop and the client with the new design.

Wynwood 2.0

Building Area : 12,830 SF
Building Status : Unbuilt

Wynwood 2.0 was our study of facades to move beyond murals and into architecture and urban space making. What are the possibilities when artists can shape architectural skins and spaces beyond street murals?

This design was for a client who wanted to study the renovation of their existing one-story building and adjacent parcels in Wynwood. They wanted us to add glazing and a coherent design to the assemblage of existing warehouse buildings. All the adjacent areas were studied as potential urban spaces for cafes and public art. We proposed that the roof area as a significant design opportunity: a fifth façade designed to be seen from above as a composition which also could serve as urban space with pop-up retailers and roof deck and garden in a neighborhood with very little green public space.

A rain screen was designed for part of the façade to play with light and shadow in the interior as well as another opportunity to integrate art into the architecture. The façade glazing pattern was designed to allow sufficient contiguous space for local Artist to do significant pieces of mural art. (Mural art in concept study renderings by Jane Stark)
