KGD reworked this duplex with a new kitchen, master and powder baths and designed anopen floating staircase. The kitchen was redesigned for optimum space and opened the entrance area to see the spectacular views upon entering. A bar area was added with a backsplash of mirrors to reflect Miami Beach sunrise and sunsets. Vintage mid-century classics accents, a Milo Baumann coffee table, Murano glass, African masks and a “Bretoia “wall sculpture enhance the beauty of the duplex. The staircase was partially relocated to allow room for a desk area. Architectural glass panels were anchored with chrome bolts all up the staircase to the master bedroom area . The master bathroom was gutted and all doors removed and replaced with frosted glass pocket doors. The shower was enlarged by taking air space and creating a shower seat with a wall of glass tiles flanked by white thassos granite.
The ceilings were raised from 8 to 9 1/2 feet. The soaring 20 Foot living room was anchored with a dark rug to absorb the light and a leather sectional with a pair of swivel chairs provides a comfortable conversation area to living and terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay. My clients from East Hampton originally wanted a snow bird’s nest for winter months, but find themselves here off and on year-round.
