Located two blocks from the ocean in Miami Beach, the 1927 historic structure was renovated to accommodate a decorative arts collection of objects, furniture and works on paper.
The Wolfsonian – FIU Museum houses a collection of over 100,000 objects, administrative offices, research center, library, auditorium and gallery spaces.
Modern climate control, lighting and security, all requiring extensive cabling and ducts that would normally raise visual havoc when left exposed, were all organized around structural framing. The project is disciplined in its detailing and rigorous in the coordination of the exposed operational systems.
