This project for the Miami Design District provides adaptable spaces for coliving and coworking in a mid-rise tower.
Courts, passageways, arcades and stairways give the Miami Design District its character, but they are deployed here as an inherent critique of the Design District’s low-rise urbanism which lacks the programmatic diversity of a rich urban fabric.
The project stacks this language into a vertical mat urbanism that approximates the public and semi-public spatial sequences of the Design District. Large apertures appear around the perimeter of the towers as abstractions of the pervasive balcony typology of Miami Beach high-rises.
