A soaring new skyscraper dubbed the "Brickell Flatiron" is set to rise 213 meters above the skyline in Brickell, Miami. Designed by Luis Revuelta, the tower features an organic floorplate profile with wide elliptical terraces, maximizing sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami.

These curvilinear, flowing lines are complemented by the interiors, designed by acclaimed Italian architect and designer Massimo Iosa Ghini of Iosa Ghini Associati. The Italian craftsmanship and renaissance-revival air of Iosa Ghini's design together with the clean functionality of Revuelta's architecture, presenting two harmonious elements of design in Miami; old school glamor, and contemporary luxury.

Sitting at the epicenter of the downtown Miami financial district, the project will provide 548 residential units and 39,344 square feet of ground level retail. Its central location places it within walking distance to Mary Brickell Village and Brickell City Center, allowing users to take advantage of the lively cafe and restaurant scene in Miami's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. The distinct shape of the building will differentiate it from the Brickell skyline, hinting at the sinuous architectural elements which also lie within.

Massimo Iosa Ghini is renowned for his industrial design as much as his architecture. The holistic awareness of the two is apparent within his vision for Brickell Flatiron, which incorporates bold furnishings and premium Italian finishes within carefully considered spatial layouts. Each of his interior spaces, which aside from the residential apartments include a sky spa, gym, theatre, library lounge, and children's center utilizes "clear surfaces, rich textures, fine raw materials, and bright natural light."

My approach to design is to envision a single object, conceptualizing "full" architecture in which the exterior and interior are as one. When designing the interior spaces of Brickell Flatiron, I wanted to honor and incorporate the fluid aesthetics of the building’s exterior created by Revuelta Architecture International. – Massimo Iosa Ghini

The premium ground floor retail and dining are accentuated by the inclusion of specialty artworks in the grand lobby. Large scale paintings from New York artist Julian Schnabel, produced exclusively for Brickell Flatiron, will create a culturally rich and visually interesting art gallery for residents and visitors as they enter the building.
