Beach House 8
Beach House 8 is an exclusive building featuring one residence per floor, flow through finished residences with gourmet boffo kitchens and gorgeous direct ocean views.
Beach House 8 consists of a series of shifted frames, expressing a series of houses in a very pure and abstract way…
…the dynamic movement of Miami, all the energy of the ocean waves
In shared outdoor and lobby areas, elements from wood-panelled drawing rooms to decking finished in Mauritian Teak, from natural-fiber banquettes to dark-blue mosaic tiling in the pool, from the garden waterfall to the airy 14-foot ceilings at the entry—combined with a full suite of concierge services appropriate for cosmopolitan living—all create an atmosphere of both understated elegance and contemporary informality. Just right for where the city meets the beach.

Beach House 8 spectacular Penthouse
While each residence at Beach House 8 has its special qualities, the duplex penthouse is very special indeed. With some 6000 square feet of outdoor living space over two levels, this unique home includes elements like a master guest suite and a landscaped private plunge pool—perfect for both gracious entertaining and intimately secluded living.
The master suite and private terrace at the rooftop level, (whose singular bathtub offers ocean views across a sweeping private deck), recalls the commanding proportions of the personal cabins on a yacht’s quarterdeck, with the same gracious yet adventurous maritime feeling to be found in everything from the crisply-detailed cable-railings to the horizon-deep views of sea and sky.

Beach House 8 Kitchens
Each kitchen in Beach House 8 combines clean lines with crisp detailing. Informed by modern European traditions of refined industrial design, they feature professional-grade stainless-steel gas ranges and double-ovens by Miele—along with graceful extras from a dish-warmer to a built-in espresso machine.
Generous refrigerators, freezers, and wine-coolers are scaled for entertaining—but disappear behind bleached oak panels that match the rest of the Boffi cabinetry. Substantial countertops and backsplashes in large- scale slabs of Calacatta Gold stone, quarried in Italy, add both durability and character. The result is sophistication with a touch of luxury appropriate for its setting and its open-plan adjacency to living and dining areas, combined with an informal ease perfect for the beach.
Beach House 8 Bathrooms
Bathrooms in each residence of Beach House 8 share a generosity of scale and a feeling of relaxation—down to the dual ceiling and wall rain-shower heads in each master bathroom—along with architectural detailing that welcomes in natural daylight while ensuring privacy.
Yet, thanks to distinctive fixtures and finishes, each bathroom has its own unique character. Substantial, 2-inch- deep slabs of Italian-quarried Travertine, Carrara marble, and other stone surfaces for flooring, walls and countertops—some incised with a delicate light-catching texture that recalls the play of sunshine on water—bring a natural beauty to bathroom interiors that recalls the nearby beauty of sea and sand. Cabinetry and fixtures from Boffi, Duravit, and Dornbracht ensure enduring quality and comfort.
