Renzo Piano’s first residential building in Miami, called Eighty Seven Park, has just been completed. The building is designed to look like a floating oval-shaped structure above the ocean and park.
The project’s construction is elevated on white pillars.
“The language we wanted to use for Eighty Seven Park is the language of lightness, a sense of a lack of gravity,” explains Renzo Piano.
The Eighty Seven Park includes 68 units and a two acres private park for residents. The complex also features two pools with cabanas, a spa with a hammam, a juice bar and café, a wine bar, and a library. A penthouse rooftop contains infinity swimming pools at an elevation of 200’, with associated pool decks, taking advantage of a 360-degree view.
The residential units’ design is inspired by the natural surrounding landscape of Miami’s North Beach. The large terraces create for the tenants a direct relation with the surrounding environment.
The interior is designed by RDAI and the landscape by West 8.
Renzo Piano also says, “The quality of architecture is about poetry and beauty but it’s also about detail and perfection.”
