Famed practice Bjarke Ingels Group develops The Grove at Grand Bay Residences project, combining the true Miami style architecture with their own aesthetic.
From the Architects:
"Miami has developed a contemporary vernacular of condominiums that combines brise soleil style balconies shading floor-to-ceiling windows enjoying panoramic water views. We propose to take these elements and continue the evolution of the local condominium.
Coconut Grove’s identity is closely tied to its untamed jungle-like vegetation, yet the center has become practically clear-cut. We propose to “re-grove” the heart of Coconut Grove, and create a landscape in tune with the surroundings.
The two towers of the Grove at Grand Bay respond to the surroundings and to each other, to give optimum views at every level. The towers take off from the ground to capture the full breadth of panoramic views from Sailboat Bay and the marina to the Miami skyline. The dancing motion of the towers will create a new landmark in the community.”
