Miami Beach real estate isn’t usually synonymous with the word elusive, but the Herzog & de Meuron Residences at 11 11 are genuinely hidden gems located right off the busy Lincoln Road shopping and entertainment corridor.
The Pritzker-winning architects designed two ultra-private residences completed in 2017 that essentially float above South Beach. One of those units is currently on the market for $2.999M and Designing Miami got a private tour of the space described as impeccable, intelligent, and innovative.
Accessible via private elevator only, once you reach the top level you’re instantly transported to a Zen-like rooftop garden curated by Miami’s Raymond Jungles filled with Acadia trees and lush greenery. A wooden cantilevered awning casts shadows along the deck’s honed stone floors, and the city’s noise feels miles away.
Natural light floods the oak-floored living space with grand floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open to emphasize indoor-outdoor living. Inside, the stunning modern abode furnished by Meredith Bear Homes features two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. An additional bedroom and bathroom are accessible through a private entrance just off the central garden.
Ten-foot-tall ceilings provide a light-filled ambiance. In total, the floating abode measures 2,236 square feet of indoor space with an additional 1,800 square feet of private gardens – every room in the home boasts a private, enclosed terrace.
The residence is filled with carefully thought-out design features including circular skylights in the walk-in rain showers offering additional rays of natural light, and “floating” walls with no baseboard throughout.
The all-white eat-in kitchen’s sleek design is enhanced with touches of Calacatta marble and Subzero and Bosch appliances, and the bathrooms include high-end designer fixtures.
If you’re looking for something other than a flashy, crowded high-rise, this one-of-a-kind Herzog & de Meuron residence is a refreshing kind of luxury ideal for the in-the-know individual seeking an opulent hideaway in an urban setting.
