Designed by Achille Salvagni, an Italian designer and architect who has done some incredible yacht interiors but also has a flair for midcentury Italian design, this 7,400 square foot new-build in Mid-Beach was designed almost like a superyacht itself. The house has curvilinear lines and fabulous materials, creating custom elements like a kitchen that looks more like a sculptural art installation than a place to make food, and a bronze and gold grand staircase. It's also got a pool that, at 90 feet in length, spans almost the entire 111-foot width of the property itself. Originally listed for $21 million in March, it got a price cut to $19 million, according to the MLS, in May.
Built in 1845, this classic conch house in the heart of old Key West has been through a lot. Apparently owned by one of Key West's founding families, the house is built with Dade County Pine, which can still be seen in the stair hall, living room, and master bedroom, has bright green shutters opening out to the front verandah, and is surrounded by a white picket fence. It's also got a freeform pool, and an interior decor job that is just so Martha-Stewart-comes-to-Key-West perfect it's insane.
A rather psychedelic new gym designed by one of Miami's boldest young architects has just opened on Lincoln Road. Manuel Clavel Rojo of Clavel Arquitectos, perhaps best known locally for designing part of the surreal Museum Garage in the Design District (the section with the cars suspended off the side), has designed the brand-new Miami incarnation of Gymage, a Madrid-based gym and "lifestyle resort."
This lavish spread on Fisher Island, which has been completely done up by Italian designer Augusto Busnelli, is currently on the market for an impressive $14.5 million. The unit features an octagonal atrium entry, and an absolutely humungous terrace, called a Lanai. Yes, it's just like the Lanai on the Golden Girls, but huge, and it includes a full-size private swimming pool.
This home and studio, located in Phipp's Plaza, a residential and commercial plaza with central green space in the center of Palm Beach, is the home and studio of modern-day interior designer Scott Snyder, and was the home and studio of Marion Sims Wyeth, an architect who designed many notable projects around South Florida in the freewheeling 1920s.
One of Miami's most anticipated new residential projects, Park Grove, has been completed. Well, two thirds of it is done at least. Construction of Two Park Grove and Park Grove Club Residences has just wrapped up and been unveiled, while One Park Grove, the tower closest to the bay, remains under construction. It will be done next year.
The dearly departed grand dame of contemporary architecture, Zaha Hadid, was a big fan of Miami. The internationally renowned architect of the currently-under-construction One Thousand Museum in Downtown Miami loved Miami so much she had a vacation home here, where she spent a lot of time before her untimely death at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach (yes, she even died here).
The Junior League of Miami debuted its 2018 showhouse at the Deering Estate in Culter, giving a slew of talented interior designers free reign to redecorate the interiors of the historic structure. Debuting with a gala opening, the showhouse was open to visitors from April 25th to 29th.
