About this project

Four separate units at The Residences at The Miami Beach Edition were gutted and combined to create a residence perfect for entertaining. The minimalist expression of interior design serves as the backdrop for a stunning and idiosyncratic contemporary art and design furniture collection that conveys the Client’s distinct personality.

The Client, who is an avid music lover, asked SLI to incorporate the best quality sound system into the design of the home. With a minimalist approach to the interior design, we wanted to give the client the ability to listen to music and watch TV in the public great room area but keep the AV equipment concealed when not in use. Taking advantage of the 16’ ceiling height, we designed an enclosure for the AV equipment with an 8.5’ tall and 14.5’ wide door which raises up to expose a 98” TV and a world class Steinway speaker system with a click of a button.

Custom metal chain drapery, designed by SLI, was installed throughout the public great room area.

The master suite is paneled with custom lacquered millwork.

“They are to be admired for their good business sense as well as their exceptional design sense.”

—Client, San Francisco

“They have the highest expectations of themselves, the contractors, their clients and the final product. While some probably cannot appreciate this exacting methodology, I could not be satisfied any other way.”


—Client, Manhattan

“Innovation, as it happens, is at the heart of Lovell’s design ethos.”
