The TP Apartment was designed for a young couple moving to the iconic neighborhood of Miami – Brickell. The couple’s style served as inspiration for the project, focusing on a sleek but strong aesthetic. As requested, the project brings the powerful contrast of black and white to another level.
The material selection delivers balance to the composition juxtaposing the comfort of soft materials like velvet, silk, and linen, with the elegance of hard surfaces like marble, mirror, and stone. The integrated living room showcases a curated furniture selection that enhances dynamism with a curved sofa, rounded edges rug and dining, and organic shaped seating. The space planning build on an asymmetrical balance maximized the usable area on the chamfered floor plan. This asymmetrical arrangement also flows throughout the apartment with smoke mirrors, linen wallpaper, and lacquered wall panels. This combination of voids and solids aided to demark each area to bring balance and boldness. The master bedroom has an inverted headboard with cove lighting to highlight the metallic wallpaper, frosted glass nightstands and velvety drapery. Despite cold tones, every texture combined with organic shapes on furniture selection and custom lighting embrace each space in a warm, unique, and cozy environment.
To adapt the unit for client’s necessities, modifications were made in the original layout, changing the entrance of the guest bedroom to maximize the living room media wall, and converting a den into a walking closet for master bedroom. The angular shape of the living room windows was a challenge which limited the available space that were solved through and angular sofa and an asymmetrical layout. The exclusively black and white color palette requested by the client was balanced through the use of wallpaper and velvety textures bringing warmth and coziness to the project.
