design et al are delighted to announce that Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Global Award in The International Hotel & Property Awards 2019.
A 250 seat full-service restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating area and a Lounge Bar on the second floor.
This classy and sleek indoor/outdoor dining destination effortlessly combines modern chic cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. Kobi Karp specified on the first level, a full-service restaurant, including kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining areas, bar and incidental back of house areas.
The restaurant is situated in the heart of Miami Design District, a redeveloped area containing Luxury fashion stores like Tom Ford and Givenchy, 130 art galleries, antique dealers, eateries, bars, and many more cultural destinations. Swan Restaurant and Bar Bevy were happily welcomed into the neighbourhood for its fusion menu using local and sustainably sourced ingredients; allowing visitors to relax, take a bite, all while absorbing the outdoor environment and tropical weather of Miami, Florida. The space also invites guests to enjoy themselves after working hours to socialise, dance, and eat in a beautiful setting.
Subtle nods to Miami’s vibrant and legendary Art Deco landscape can be found in the building’s pink, creamy opal and jade green colour scheme and pink-onyx bar. Magic City fashion is evident throughout giving diners incomparable vistas to enjoy with their meals.
The restaurant’s discreet upstairs lounge has an electrifying feel and ambience in bold reds, blues and animal prints, with velvet seating, brass accents and tapestry-like wallpaper, guests are transported to an exhilarating after-dinner experience.
The supremely comfortable outdoor garden is within touching distance for those wanting fresh air. Welcoming tree-lined seating areas simply add to the experience along with the rooftop lounge. On the ground floor the overlapping spaces provide different options to guests; indoor seating areas with views to the outside, outdoor shaded or unshaded seating areas all with exceptional views.
The collaboration of designers makes the aesthetic and performance of the space work wonderfully in all its different aspects. The L-shape building block sitting on a square lot allows for a shaded courtyard space which is used for an outdoor dining area. The programmatic layout provides for the everyday activities to flow smoothly throughout the space while the interior design and landscape bring lush greenery, colours, and textures that accentuate the environment’s character.
