Miami Sun Hotel Renovation


We are providing consulting services for a lobby space in a fantastic historic art deco building in Miami.


Working closely with the hotel's owner, we have imagined a fresh and playful space to welcome guests. We suggested that the owner remove a dreadful, rusty dropped ceiling, and install new exposed ductwork and light fixtures. This dramatically opened up the space.


We laid out a bold chevron pattern for the floor tile, and let this playful element serve as the centerpiece of an otherwise simple, clean space. Splashes of aqua color draw the visitor's attention to the reception desk, and classic seating by Le Corbusier offer a place to pause while waiting for a taxi to the beach.

We designed a turquoise chevron graphic pattern for the front facade to tie the exterior to the new interior design, and  celebrate the Art Deco history of the building

LC3 chairs designed by the great modernist architect Le Corbusier are featured in the new lobby

Stainless Steel tables are durable enough to double as seats in the busy lobby space
