An Urban Oasis in Brickell

ZAG recently upgraded a 27 year old high rise apartment for a family of 4 in the heart of the Miami Financial District. Living in an apartment has spatial limitations. For this project we were able to satisfy the functional needs of a family that likes to cook and entertain.

The design challenge was to
accommodate a large number of appliances and equipment yet provide a clean and uncluttered look and maximize the work areas. Black granite counter-tops and back-splash, combined with zebra wood, white lacquered paneling and bamboo patterned porcelain floor tiles create an elegant yet functional atmosphere.

Green design creates peaceful bathroom.
To create a Zen atmosphere in the guest bathroom, a careful balance of colors, textures & lighting was required. Using earth color materials such as river stones, tile and sand based paint we created a sophisticated and soothing environment.

Thinking of how nature interacts, "Simplicity, clean lines, fluidity and
functionality.", were the guiding design principles.
