design et al are delighted to announce that Meyer Davis have been shortlisted for a Hotel Suite Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2016
1 Hotel South Beach suites have been designed and furnish to look and feel like apartments on the water. A variety of room types offer open and airy spaces for lounging and entertaining, as well as
private bedrooms with perfect beach views. Keeping the same reclaimed and re purposed feeling as the guest rooms, suites take the luxury further with thoughtful custom table lamps, comfortable yet effortlessly luxurious fabric choices, and shoes off lived in finishes. Allowing guests to completely
spread out and make a home of their suite, these rooms offer unprecedented luxury for Miami Beach. Thoughtful details include the ever present Plant the Future terrariums, and tailored chaise
lounges that line bedroom windows.
The interior design team’s approach to selecting materials was one of the most important aspects of the design, each decision aimed to use materials in the most honest and natural way. These and more honest materials are carefully combined and thoughtfully contrasted through texture and colour. The cooperation and tension found in material relations reflect how they are experienced in nature. The environment created is casual, easy, and warm.
Immersion is instant – while it is an environment that is entirely new, it feels incredibly familiar and palatable. Earthy qualities in building materials are heightened, sharpened, and exaggerated to draw attention to them. For sustainability as well as a desired look and feel, finishes aren’t perfectly finished, finely sanded, or precisely mitred. Material decisions were made that preserved the scale of the existing space. The design team took time to determine which materials were appropriate to use at what dimension to strike the perfect balance architecturally.
