The building’s entrance sets the tone, with natural light, water elements, and materials that reference the visual effect of waves lapping the shore.
The pool level is, fittingly, all about water, with unobstructed views of the Atlantic. A mesmerizing video installation showing patterns of light underwater animates the ceiling of the pool lobby.
Exclusive lush landscaped pool deck
Ascending in the elevator continues the experience, with an interactive installation by artist Ivan Toth Depeña symbolic of the transition from water to sky. And these are only a few of countless examples

“Architecture is both a reflection and an extension of a specific location the result is a place that feels soulful. The idea is to develop a deep and meaningful relationship between people and their built environment.”– Rene Gonzalez Architect
Rene Gonzalez The Architect
Rene Gonzalez Architect creates buildings that actively engage in a ‘design conversation’ with their surroundings. Founded in 1997 in Miami, Florida, the award winning firm believes that a building is inexorably linked to the cultural and natural environment beyond its physical boundaries.
The firm’s designs are influenced by external factors, both ethereal and earthly, including sky, water, vegetation and the bustle of human activity. Often in their work, there’s a deliberate ambiguity between the inside and the outside, bringing elements of each into the other.
By intentionally blurring the lines between constructed and innate landscapes, Rene Gonzalez Architect (RGA) synthesizes elements, making it difficult to discern exactly where their work ends and the ambient surroundings begin.
The Landscape Architect
Raymond Jungles Inc. The Landscape Architect
Raymond Jungles, Inc. (RJI) is a dynamic, creative and ecologically sensitive landscape architecture firm practicing from its studio on the banks of the Miami River in downtown Miami.
The South Florida firm has maintained a local and international presence since 1981, completing many award-winning projects of varying complexities. RJI has created gardens in eleven countries including Antigua, Anguilla, the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, China, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and St. Kitts and Nevis.
Our gardens are expressive of their region and the time in which they were created. We endeavor to provide as much supportive habitat on each project, as is appropriate, to put back some of what has been lost to the local and migratory fauna. The recurring comment, “it looks like it has always been here,” is a direct result of our goal to strive for timelessness and beauty.
The initial focus is on the experiences that the spaces we conceive will ultimately provide. Through sound ecological practices, we ensure that the spaces will be as inspirational as possible. They will educate one on the benefits of human coexistence with the natural world.
Terra Group formed in 2001, with the ambition to evolve the Miami landscape – and by extension, the lives of the people within it. Terra Group’s founder, Pedro Martin, has spent his entire professional life in South Florida, subsequently recognizing the opportunity to enrich and invigorate Miami by creating truly original, exceptional spaces in unexpected places. Together with his son, David, Terra Group has made it their mission to refine (and redefine) the way people could and should live, beyond the norm.
With an in-house team of the very best people in their field – architects, builders, lawyers, designers – David and Pedro have quickly gained a reputation for creating highly original, high-end residential, commercial and mixed-used projects. However, unlike other developers – and as Miami residents themselves – Pedro and David do not simply buy up unwanted pieces of real estate with the hope of giving them a facelift. (After all, that is not progress).
Instead, they choose only to work on projects that speak to their imaginations, and to their vision of a new Miami: one which helps people, and places to unlock or realize their full potential.
As each project is carefully selected with an individual plan in mind, Terra Group ensures that their work makes a lasting contribution, not just to the landscape, but to the culture of Miami as a whole.
By following their evolutionary instinct to this day, Pedro and David continue to find new opportunities, creating enriching (not to mention award-winning) connections between people and places. With an active involvement in South Florida’s charitable, civic, arts and cultural organizations, Terra Group remain acutely aware of how our environment defines us, as much as we define it.
