As well as being home to incredible sunshine and breathtaking beach-side scenery, Miami, Florida is also the centre of an art and design scene that is frequently pushing boundaries progressively forward. The glamorous concepts of Miami architecture and design are often the result of Latin-American and Cuban influences meeting North American and European ideas of style and class. With British architect John Pawson’s stunning work on a new leisure complex on Miami Beach this is all firmly in effect.

Including 26 unique apartments, known as ‘homes in the sky’, Pawson’s designs will reside on the top floors of the Edition hotel. Making use of the glorious Miami weather, the apartments include ‘outdoor rooms’ with more than enough space for pools and outdoor kitchens, dining areas, fireplaces and pergolas.

Many of the homes include wide views of both the city and the bay, while those on the top floors of the hotel have terrific ocean views.

For those after some Miami adventure, this could be a great place to start!
