In order to stand out from other residential high-rises in Miami’s burgeoning Brickell area, the 50-story, luxury Solitair building needed to make a bold visual statement on the inside and out. Our job? Design a building with a seamless translation from architecture through interiors. We wanted to create urban elements that combined luxury modern design and created a stylish yet sophisticated environment.
Developed by ZOM Living, Solitair Brickell includes 438 residential units ranging from studios to one and two bedrooms units and two bedroom penthouse suites. The 50th floor amenity deck includes one of the highest rooftop resort style pools in Miami. It boasts luxury cabanas and sweeping views of the city and the Biscayne Bay. The top floor also features many millennial-friendly amenities such as the stylish Billiard lounge with TVs, wet bar, modern sectional sofas, and separate business center with two conference rooms and a buffet bar for catering functions . Solitair’s design distinguishes itself amongst the vibrant Brickell backdrop with a striking façade—a unique angular, basket-weave design inspired by the majestic Medjool palm tree. With environmental concerns in mind, the orientation of the building avoids direct sunlight and solar radiation, and incorporated wells capture and repurpose stormwater.
The stand-out features in the lobby are the intricate wood elements on the ceiling that create contrast against the classic marble and the urban feel of the concrete panels, and the interior materials (such as paint, carpets, adhesives, and sealants) are low-emitting to maintain optimum indoor air.
The vision for the building’s interior design is meant to seamlessly draw from the architectural concept and incorporate subtle interpretations throughout. Being an amenity-heavy project, Solitair was designed so that each space was unique but related. The result? Something notable.
