The Penthouse at Grove at Grand Bay
The conceptual design for the coveted penthouse at Grove at Grand Bay was commissioned by The Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman. This project showcases depth and character, all while fusing an organic touch with the endless views.
This penthouse by famed Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, consists of 10,118 square feet of interior space. The development by Terra Group is located in the highly-sought-after bayfront neighborhood of Coconut Grove in Miami.
The vision was to elevate this residence by combining natural elements and chic furnishings to create a sense of organic sophistication. The concept showcases the ample scale of the penthouse for buyer’s to visualize its maximum potential of the interior architecture and design.
The design style is contemporary and modern and incorporates symmetry and sleek lines for a timeless notion that transcends any trend. Inspired by art that ranges from conceptualism to surrealism, the curated work references these movements.
The home offers an impressive 360° view of Miami and evokes a sense of wonder as you walk through the open-plan layout. As you enter the main living room, a wooden sculpture defies gravity and enhances the Herringbone walnut flooring. The anchoring piece is a repose sofa by Adam Court for Studio Twentyseven and a Tumba coffee table by Niko Koronis. The wood veneer ceiling with cove lighting and beams emphasizes the dimensional millwork and adds depth. An oversized bronze door leads to a secluded office surrounded by French Oak paneling.
Cladded illuminated limestone dresses the dining room, adding an ethereal tone to the space, and blending in with the infinite ocean view. In the kitchen, refined bronze cabinet doors also serves as a backsplash and is complemented by dark taupe lacquered cabinets. Calacatta verde stone slabs cover the ovens and the kitchen island.
The master bedroom is best described as minimalist with an elegant twist: an unexpected combination of leather padded headboard and Rizo Cenere Terrazzo. Wood panels on each side of bed extend to the ceiling with indirect light. Furnishings by Minotti, Studio Twentyseven and lights by Flos bring the room together.
The master bathroom elicits a strong sense of mindfulness and stillness. The bathtub includes a wooden ledge and Athens silver limestone. The Lindsey Adelman lighting accompanies the bronze details on the doors and shower finishes.
