Floorplan Spotlight

01/02/2018

As more discerning Miami home-seekers choose loft-like luxury condominiums over traditional houses, architects and designers are responding in kind, creating more flexible and open floor plans. In addition to offering sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, the Downtown Miami skyline, and an array of amenities, Brickell Flatiron’s luxury homes feature interiors by designer Massimo Iosa Ghini. Each unit enjoys open floor plans, allowing residents creative freedom in customizing their living space—a rarity.

One particular home at Brickell Flatiron exemplifies Iosa Ghini’s commitment to gracious high-rise living: Penthouse 04. On entry, the sightline stretches from the foyer to the living and dining space and all the way to the window, which looks out onto a private terrace. At over 500 square feet, this terrace offers a substantial addition to the living area of this residence.

Inside, the oversized living and dining area is adjacent to the kitchen, lending an ease of movement for entertaining and day-to-day meals alike. With a thoughtful design, Penthouse 04’s kitchen combines the luxurious old-world materials of Italian-made Snaidero cabinets, Caesarstone counters, and Miele appliances with the warmth and openness of a contemporary design, along with plenty of workspace and room to dine or enjoy a glass of wine at the counter.

This unique penthouse has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and one powder room. To the left of the foyer, three generously proportioned bedrooms are ideally situated to enjoy bay views—each one overlooks the terrace. Two of them are well-sized at 12' 7" x 11' and have their own bathrooms and closets, one of which is a walk-in. The third bedroom is a generous 12' x 13' 8" and has an adjacent walk-in closet, next to which is a spacious full bath.

Across the hall from the bedrooms, there’s a 12' 3" x 6' den, which could be used as an office or as a place to entertain and relax. The powder room is to the immediate left of the entryway. The laundry center is just to the left of the powder room, but you’d never know it because the Bosch washer and dryer are equipped with noise suppression technology.

The entire right side of the penthouse is devoted to the master suite. The 13' 5" x 13' 8" master bedroom overlooks the terrace and the bay and has an en-suite 16' 9" x 9' 8" master bathroom with an oversized tub, a shower, and double sinks. Therapeutic lighting and luxurious finishes give the bathroom a spa-like atmosphere: there are Duravit fixtures and custom-designed cabinets, Dornbracht hardware, and polished Italian marble floors. The bedroom has two spacious walk-in closets. Like the rest of the penthouse, the master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows, offering breathtaking views of the bay and natural light from dawn to dusk.

For buyers seeking the space and feel of a traditional house, but with a contemporary and cutting-edge design, Brickell Flatiron’s Penthouse 04 is a perfect fit.
