This project was designed to evoke the more festive feel of Miami and South beach and to inspire artists and others who may want to live in a community focused on art and a Florida Bohemian flare for life. The buildings are modestly adorned with prime colors of an artist paint palette, red, yellow and blue painted onto the bright canvas of the stucco building. This provides a powerful iconic design with an impact on the street view, making the project stand out from all the rest. This color scheme is a playful expression of the “Primary Colors” and points towards Miami’s historic Art Deco District’s colorizations of the South Beach buildings. This unique Architecture is influenced by many styles besides Art Deco such as the International and Constructivist architecture seen all around South Florida along with the simplicities of the European Bauhaus style. Within the site a grand public park is created for the commune of artists and patrons during art, music and food festivals as well as passive moments with small groups of artists discussing their passions in the beautiful “Compo” under the shade of the palms creating a genuine Bohemian Vibe of the community that will draw folds to the retail and artists studios surrounding it.
