SoFi is home to one of one the the latest projectsof Britto Charette: Portofino. “The sought-after South Beach location, also known as South of Fifth, is a fantastic blend of Art Deco buildings, contemporary residential architecture, and gleaming high rises.”
“Our clients wanted a sophisticated design and tasked us with completely gutting and transforming their 2700 square foot space.”
Specialized in a style that is hard to define, today we’ll try to show you how the company did its best with this contemporary residence. Contemporary means ‘at the moment’, which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics.
In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design. At the end, it means that contemporary style is always evolving, and the team does its best to be always updated with the latest design trends. Nowadays, it can be defined by neutral colors, clean an curved lines and minimalism. Open spaces are also a strong architecture feature, that we can see here!
“Our team loves a challenge and we found a fun one in Portofino: our clients are tall but the ceilings are short. What to do? With the help of our fantastic construction specialists, we were able to raise the ceilings, providing the perfect solution for our clients.”
Kitchen islands are a great idea to create the sense of barrier between the kitchen and dining room. It is also a way to foster socialization, and, simultaneously, create a private cocktail bar look.
“Our team remodeled the kitchen, dining room, living room, three bedrooms, and three bathrooms. We installed wood floors in the bedrooms and white marble in the common areas. The clients were after a sophisticated space, so we used a clean color palette with accents of oak and lots of wood wall paneling. Britto Charette also designed custom headboards, feature walls, and unique storage solutions that will help our clients really maximize the use of their space.”
