Situated on a challenging sloped lot, an elegant and modern home was achieved with a focus on warm walnut, stainless steel, glass and concrete. Each floor, named Sand, Sea, Surf and Sky, is connected by a floating walnut staircase and an elevator concealed by walnut paneling in the entrance. The home captures the expansive and serene views of the ocean, with spaces outdoors that incorporate water and fire elements. Ease of maintenance and efficiency was paramount in finishes and systems within the home. Accents of Swarovski crystals illuminate the corridor leading to the master suite and add sparkle to the lighting throughout. A sleek and functional kitchen was achieved featuring black walnut and charcoal gloss millwork, also incorporating a concealed pantry and quartz surfaces. An impressive wine cooler displays bottles horizontally over steel and walnut, spanning from floor to ceiling. Features were integrated that capture the fluid motion of a wave and can be seen in the flexible slate on the contoured fireplace, Modular Arts wall panels, and stainless steel accents. The foyer and outer decks also display this sense of movement. At only 22 feet in width, and 4300 square feet of dramatic finishes, a four car garage that includes additional space for the client's motorcycle, the Wave House was a productive and rewarding collaboration between the client and KBC Developments.

Ocean front, Luxury home in Miami Beach - Living Room. Projects by J Design Group, Your friendly Interior designers firm in Miami, FL. at your service. AVENTURA MAGAZINE selected our client’s luxury 5000 Sf ocean front apartment in Miami Beach, to publish it in their issue and they Said: Story by Linda Marx, Photography by Daniel Newcomb Light & Bright New York snowbirds redesigned their Miami Beach apartment to take advantage of the tropical lifestyle. New York snowbirds redesigned their Miami Beach apartment to take advantage of the tropical lifestyle. WHEN INTERIOR DESIGNER JENNIFER CORREDOR was asked to recreate a four-bedroom, six-bath condominium at The Bath Club in Miami Beach, she seized the opportunity to open the rooms and better utilize the vast ocean views. In five months last year, the designer transformed a dark and closed 5,000-square-foot unit located on a high floor into a series of sweeping waterfront spaces and updated the well located apartment into a light and airy retreat for a sports-loving family of five. “They come down from New York every other weekend and wanted to make their waterfront home a series of grand open spaces,” says Jennifer Corrredor, of the J. Design Group in Miami, a firm specializing in modern and contemporary interiors. “Since many of the rooms face the ocean, it made sense to open and lighten up the home, taking advantage of the awesome views of the sea and the bay.” The designer used 40 x 40 all white tile throughout the apartment as a clean base. This way, her sophisticated use of color would stand out and bring the outdoors in. The close-knit family members—two parents and three boys in college—like to do things together. But there were situations to overcome in the process of modernizing and opening the space. When Jennifer Corredor was briefed on their desires, nothing seemed too daunting. The confident designer was ready to delve in. For example, she fixed an area at the front door that was curved. “The wood was concave so I straightened it out,” she explains of a request from the clients. “It was an obstacle that I overcame as part of what I do in a redesign. I don’t consider it a difficult challenge. Improving what I see is part of the process.” She also tackled the kitchen with gusto by demolishing a wall. The kitchen had formerly been enclosed, which was a waste of space and poor use of available waterfront ambience. To create a grand space linking the kitchen to the living room and dining room area, something had to go. Once the wall was yesterday’s news, she relocated the refrigerator and freezer (two separate appliances) to the other side of the room. This change was a natural functionality in the new open space. “By tearing out the wall, the family has a better view of the kitchen from the living and dining rooms,” says Jennifer Corredor, who also made it easier to walk in and out of one area and into the other. “The views of the larger public space and the surrounding water are breathtaking. Opening it up changed everything.” They clients can now see the kitchen from the living and dining areas, and at the same time, dwell in an airy and open space instead of feeling stuck in a dark enclosed series of rooms. In fact, the high-top bar stools that Jennifer Corredor selected for the kitchen can be twirled around to use for watching TV in the living room. In keeping with the theme of moving seamlessly from one room to the other, Corredor designed a subtle wall of glass in the living room along with lots of comfortable seating. This way, all family members feel at ease while relaxing, talking, or watching sporting events on the large flat screen television. “For this room, I wanted more open space, light and a supreme airy feeling,” she says. “With the glass design making a statement, it quickly became the star of the show.”……. ….. To add texture and depth, Jennifer Corredor custom created wood doors here, and in other areas of the home. They provide a nice contrast to the open Florida tropical feel. “I added character to the openness by using exotic cherry wood,” she says. “I repeated this throughout the home and it works well.” Known for capturing the client’s vision while adding her own innovative twists, Jennifer Corredor lightened the family room, giving it a contemporary and modern edge with colorful art and matching throw pillows on the sofas. She added a large beige leather ottoman as the center coffee table in the room. This round piece was punctuated with a bold-toned flowering plant atop. It effortlessly matches the pillows and colors of the contemporary canvas. Jennifer Corredor also gutted all of the bathrooms, resulting in a major redesign of the master. She jettisoned the whirlpool and created the dazzling illusion of a floating tub. From an area where there were two toilets, she eliminated one to make a grand rectangular shower, which became an overall showpiece. The master bath went from being just a functional water closet to a sophisticated spa-like space. “The client said I was ‘delicious’ after seeing the change,” laughed Jennifer Corredor, who emphasized that her clients love their part-time life in South Florida more each time they come down. Even when the husband has to work from their Miami Beach digs, he is surrounded by tropical beauty. For instance, there are times when the master bedroom must double as the husband’s home office. The room had to be large enough to accommodate a working space for this purpose. So Jennifer Corredor placed an appropriate table near the window and across from the king-size bed. “No blocking of the amazing water view was necessary,” she says. “I kept an open space with a lot of white so It functions well and the work space fits right in.” She repeated the bold modern art in the room as well as in the guest bedroom, which also has a workspace for the sons when they are home from school and need to study. The designer is still happy and glowing with the results of her toil in this apartment. She gets a “spiritual feeling” when she walks inside. “It is so peaceful and serene, with subtle hints of explosive statements,” she says. “The entire space is open, yet anchored by the warmth of the exotic woods.” The client wrote Jennifer Corredor a letter at the end of the project congratulating her on a job well done. She revealed that owning a Miami Beach home was her husband’s dream 30 years ago. “Now we have a quality perfect yet practical home,” she wrote to the designer. “You solved the challenges, and the end result far exceeds our expectations. We love it.” Thanks for your interest in our Contemporary Interior Design projects and if you have any question please do not hesitate to ask us. http://www.JDesignGroup.com 305.444.4611 Modern Interior designer Miami.

This project restored a Renaissance Revival lobby in an apartment building, facing Gramercy Park, designed by Emery Roth in 1928. Roth designed two 17 story buildings, one facing Gramercy Park and the other facing 22nd street and connected them at the ground floor with a 200 foot long lobby articulated by a rotunda in the middle of the block. The integrity of the decorative and lighting scheme had been lost, the rotunda was cluttered by free standing mailboxes, the original travertine plaster (a new material in the 1920s) was hidden under multiple layers of high gloss paint and the leaded glass in the steel windows was fragile. Ceiling lights and sconces were glaring and the "colonial" fixtures were inappropriate. Our approach was to restore the original finishes and colors based on a meticulous campaign of tests and mock-ups, to recover the wholeness of the rotunda by recessing mailboxes in the perimeter walls and to make the air conditioning elements "disappear". We decided to design new lights to enhance the "mood" of the spaces. We designed brass and "hammered-glass" light fixtures after looking at fixtures of the period "in the flesh". The design proceeded from drawings through architect's models to working manufacturer's mock up to ensure that the scale and functioning were right. Finally we selected and positioned new furniture to give focus to the restored spaces. The restored lobby has increased apartment values and acts again as a luxurious entry and meeting space for residents and visitors.

In 2008 an extension was added to this small country home thus allowing the clients to redesign the main floor with a larger master suite, housing a separate vanity, and a bathroom filled with technology, elegance and luxury. Although the existing space was acceptable, it did not reflect the charismatic character of the clients, and lacked breathing space. By borrowing the ineffective space from their existing “entrance court” and removing all closets thus permitting for a private space to accommodate a large vanity with Jack and Jill sinks, a separate bathroom area housing a deep sculptural tub with air massage and hydrotherapy combination, set in a perfect symmetrical fashion to allow the beautiful views of the outdoor landscape, a thin 30” LCD TV, and incorporating a large niche wall for artful accessories and spa products, as well as a private entrance to the large well organized dressing room with a make-up counter. A peaceful, elegant yet highly functional on-suite was created by this young couple’s dream of having a contemporary hotel chic palette inspired by their travels in Paris. Using the classic black and white color combination, a touch of glam, the warm natural color of cherry wood and the technology and innovation brought this retreat to a new level of relaxation. CLIENTS NEEDS Better flow, Space to blend with surrounding open area – yet still have a “wow effect” Create more organized and functional storage and take in consideration client’s mobility handicap. A large shower, an elongated tall boy toilette ,a bidet, a TV, a deep bathtub and a space to incorporate art. Designate an area to house a vanity with 2 sinks, separate from toilette and bathing area. OBJECTIVES Remove existing surrounding walls and closets, incorporated same flooring material throughout adding texture and pattern to blend with each surrounding areas. Use contrasting elements, but control with tone on tone textured materials such as wall tile. Use warm natural materials such as; solid cherry shaker style pocket doors. Enhance architectural details. Plan for custom storage using ergonomics solutions for easy access. Increase storage at entry to house all winter and summer apparel yet leave space for guest belongings. Create a fully organized and functional dressing room. Design the bathroom using a large shower but taking in consideration client’s height differences, incorporate client’s flair for modern technology yet keeping with architectural bones of existing country home design. Create a separate room that fits the desired hotel chic design and add classic contemporary glam without being trendy. DESIGN SOLUTIONS By removing most walls and re-dividing the space to fit the client’s needs, this improves the traffic flow and beautifies the line of sight. A feature wall using rich materials such as white carrara marble basket weave pattern on wall and a practical bench platform made out of Staron-pebble frost, back-lit with a well concealed LED strip light. The glow of two warm white spot lights, highlight the rich marble wall and ties this luxuriant practical element inviting guests to the enticing journey of the on-suite. Incorporate pot-lights in ceiling for general lighting. Add crystal chandeliers as focal point in the vanity area and bathroom to create balance and symmetry within the space. Highlight areas such as wall niches, vanity counter and feature wall sections. Blend architectural elements with a cool white LED strip lighting for decorative-mood accents. Integrate a large seamless shower so as to not overpower the main attraction of the bathroom, insert a shower head tower with adjustable shower heads, The addition of a state of the art electronic bidet seat fitted on to an elongated tall boy toilette. Special features of this bidet include; heated seat, gentle washing ,cleaning and drying functions, which not only looks great but is more functional than your average bidet that takes up too much valuable space. SPECIAL FEATURES The contrasting materials using classic black and white elements and the use of warm tone materials such as natural cherry for the pocket doors is the key element to the space, thus balances the light colors and creates a richness in the area. The feature wall elements with its richness and textures ties in the surrounding spaces and welcomes the individual into the space . The aesthetically pleasing bidet seat is not only practical but comforting as well. The Parisian Philippe Starck Baccarat inspired bathroom has it’s many charms and elegance as well as it’s form and function. Loads of storage neatly concealed in the design space without appearing too dominant yet is the aspect of the success of this design and it’s practicality.

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.
