The swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron developed a new experience / object for retail, resident living, dining and parking. Miami Beach´s new designed space for all these is calling “1111″, and was created in November 2009. The idea was to upgrade the building, transforming it into a more civic-orientated space with a variety of retail as well as a parking structure.
The whole building appears rough but is still full of life and movement. With its natural light and simple design, each floor is gaining in vitality.I love this rough appearance and the handling of open spaces, in relation to use and aesthetic.
