Nike – Flagship Lincoln Road

Building Area : 30,000 SF
Building Status : Completed 2017

Touzet Studio designed almost an entire city block in Lincoln Road, one of the most successful pedestrian malls in our region. We were engaged by several global brands (Apple, Nike and Gap) to help them devise a language which would fit within the local context and the historical district of Miami Beach.

In each case, we carefully researched their individual brands and married their corporate DNA to an architecture that better reflected our Miami culture, climate and materiality. We drew inspiration from Miami Beach’s history and architecture. Our work is also influenced by the Florida Sarasota School and Latin American Modernism, which share similar climates.

When Nike decided to open a flagship store on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, they came to our studio to better understand the local Miami Beach culture, context and the unique context of Lincoln Road. The City had asked for a “Lincoln Road” store, not a generic role out or repeat of other flagship store designs. Touzet Studio was engaged to make the connection between the global design brand and the local culture and materials and integrate seamlessly into the historic fabric of the block.

Grove Central

Building Area : 1,132,423 SF
Building Status : Under Construction
Role: Design Architects and Interior Designers

Grove Central is a mixed-use multi-modal project that seeks to destigmatize mass transit in Miami and to weave together the conveniences of 21st century urban living and shopping, while keeping the indoor/outdoor tree canopy and some of the palette that defines Coconut Grove. Whether it’s getting a cafecito, picking up groceries or taking the train downtown from your Grove apartment – the idea was to weave in the urban fabric and Underline together to create an active, safe and engaging linear plaza of retail to tie the project together and to increase ridership.

The project is planned to house one of the first microgrid solar roofs in the South Florida region, with battery back-up to power the Metro Rail Station and maintain essential services functional in the case that a storm event should disrupt the general grid. This resiliency features is a huge advantage for retailers, residents and transit riders.

Coral Gables Residence

Building Area: 6,091 SF
Building Status: Completed

Inspiration for this house was taken from nature, the tropical hammock of Coral Gables, and Biscayne Bay beyond. The house transitions from two engaged, stone-clad volumes on the street to a primarily crystalline facade on the bay side. The interiors balance a warm, neutral palette with moments of intense color, using terrazzo floors and natural wood to give the residence a very Florida tropical feeling. The blues and grey of the carpets and custom light fixtures pick up on the shades of the ocean. Bright bursts of color recall the vibrant tones typically found in tropical garden landscapes. The furniture layout takes full advantage of the crystalline facade and beautiful bay views, while also meeting the client’s programmatic needs.
