Studio Gang Architects has released designs for a 14-story residential tower in the Miami Design District. Anchored by ground floor retail and topped with a resident lounge and swimming pool, the tower will, as the architects describe, “demonstrate Studio Gang’s principle of exo-spatial high-rise design in which the inside extends to the outside in a dynamic spatial arrangement.”

Each of the building’s 76 residential units will frame panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and surrounding Buena Vista neighborhood with Studio Gang’s contemporary reinterpretation of a “Florida Room.”

“The exterior of the building produces habitable spaces that function as a contemporary Florida Room,” Studio Gang explains. “These shaded, open-air rooms provide both a thermal buffer for the interior and an outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining.”

The tower will target LEED Gold upon completion in 2016. Solar shading and rainwater collection will be integrated into the tower’s design.
