There’s a reason people congregate in Miami each winter. The global culturati peruse the booths of the Art Basel festival. Furniture aficionados hobnob at Design Miami events. But additionally, it’s appropriate, even expected, to lounge poolside in December, and these are bragging rights in which the city clearly revels.
Enter this Miami Beach showpiece. It’s an oasis nestled on the private Sunset Island enclave, boasting more than 10,000 square feet, seven bedrooms, and prime positioning on the glistening Biscayne Bay. Completed in 2013 by Miami’s acclaimed architect Kobi Karp, every room was conceived to celebrate exactly what makes South Florida so spectacular this time of year.
The sun bathes the crisp concrete, aluminum, and glass façade. Swaying palms caress the perimeter. The bay licks the edges of the backyard and private dock. And the estate’s sheer scale beckons impromptu dinners with neighbors, leisurely brunches with weekend guests, and, as seen in the following pages, the most over-the-top pool parties.
Through a series of tableaus, each of the home’s gathering spots — from kitchen to cabana to courtyard — is envisioned by the season’s most Instagrammable experience architects and executed by the influential stylists of Zio & Sons (70k followers and counting).
Heed their warm welcome and join us, won’t you? It’s time to get into a Sunshine State of mind.
