Una Residences, a new 47-story condominium tower, designed for OKO Group, in Miami’s South Brickell neighborhood, have spectacular views of Florida’s coastline including Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island, and the Biscayne Islands.The tower will be an iconic new vision that will help reinvent South Brickell, the 1970s birthplace of modern high-rise living in Miami. Brickell Avenue, named for early Miami founders William and Mary Brickell, is known by insiders as Miami’s “Park Avenue.”
The formal aspects of the building are sculptural in nature. It’s fluid, organic form speaks to the water, and to Miami’s climate, with large flowing terraces that wrap around the building. A sweeping cantilever at the south end of the tower overlooks the amenity spaces on the podium. By placing the amenities on the podium levels, the grounds around the tower are liberated, opening the space for public access to the waterfront. The public access points allow the design a more inviting opening sequence so that the landscaping of the building flows into the landscaping of the park.
AS+GG will also lead the interior design efforts for the tower, ensuring a seamless exterior and interior aesthetic. The interior design was inspired by the RIva yacht, a highly crafted wooden sport boat made in Italy. Natural materials like leather, wood, and stone, are featured in warm colors that contrast with the cool tones of chrome and stainless steel. The palette generates a timeless, classic mood.
