The Murano Penthouse is designed to capture cross views and breezes of Miami Beach and it is infused with warm tones, open spaces and lightness.
A teak wall, threads through these spaces and creates a warm backdrop. At the entry, the teak wall folds down to become a bench and continues as it folds onto the floor. The rest of the foyer’s skin is finished in suede panels which continue the teak pattern and tonality. Huge teak pivoting doors open up the foyer to the living spaces and create a sense of discovery upon entering.
The penthouse is at once embracing and open, warm and cool, intuitive and cerebral with an overall rhythm accentuated by fine-grained materials and carefully crafted details.
