British architect John Pawson has designed 26 luxury residences for developer Ian Schrager’s new property venture in Miami Beach. The apartments will occupy the top floors of Schrager’s Miami Beach Edition, a new hotel under development within the structure of the 1950s Seville Beach Hotel (which closed in 2006), and an 18-storey tower that has recently been built next to it, allowing for ocean views as well as vistas of the city and the bay.
The residences (which will have private entrances) will include living areas with floor-to-ceiling windows and bleached teak wood flooring throughout, including in the balconies and terraces. In addition, they will have private swimming pools and outdoor kitchens, dining areas, fireplaces and pergolas. Inside, kitchens are custom-designed with islands, and bathrooms will come with Italian white onyx translucent screens and custom-cast integral concrete bathtubs and sinks.
