321 Ocean Drive is a residential oceanfront development at the southern end of Miami Beach. It consists of two residential buildings with an elevated courtyard in between. The western building is comprised of 6 units and the eastern building of 16. The first level houses the main lobby for the project on the street-front, as well as 50 parking spaces and a pool terrace on the beachfront.
Units in the west tower are organized in a pinwheel parti of intersecting volumes. These take advantage of different urban and natural views offered by the project with projected balconies. The intersection of these volumes terminates in a penthouse with a private terrace with views of downtown Miami.
The eastern volume is organized perpendicular to the oceanfront; balconies flank the interior side of the building facing the courtyard, and the exterior side of the building on the ocean side. The penthouse level has access to a full rooftop terrace with panoramic urban and ocean views. Typical floors have two 3 bedroom units accessed through an elevator with a private foyer.
The project is clad in window wall, louver, metal screens and solid wall portions, articulating volumetric and programmatic organization of the building.
