A MODERN MIAMI HOME: The Site Before DKOR

So I want you to take a good look at these existing photos of the existing Presidential Estates Home because once we’re finished with this house it’ll be a completely different animal! We’re taking this typical South Floridian Mediterranean Revival home in Aventura, FL and transforming it into a beautiful Modern Miami Home.

Entry foyer where we are proposing the wood paneling and veneering the door in a macassar ebony

This is the main living area of the house where we are wrapping wood on the ceiling and then down along the wall (shown with the yellow art piece in the photo).

This room will be transformed into a loungy family room that incorporates a bar and a card table

We are extending the dining room until the columns beyond and are building up a wooden deck to accentuate the area from the rest of the space.

View of Living Area

We'll have an amazing landscape architect on board to recreate their backyard

The kitchen has been gutted and we are installing a brand new head - to - toe Italian kitchen and the space you see in the background will become a breakfast room

This awkward space will become a home office enclosed with sliding frosted glass doors

We're tearing out the stairs and bringing in a seamless design with individual risers supported by the adjacent walls

We're removing the existing half wall on the left (that looks down into the living space) and bringing in a clear star-fired glass to replace it. The opposite wall will be covered in long rectangular pieces of a gorgeous stone.

Master Bedroom

In this master bathroom we will bring new stone floors and tiles on all the walls, rain showerheads in the shower and new custom vanities

  1. Love the idea of wood on the ceiling and the glass railing instead of the halfwall- it will give more chance to view the art work.
    The areas appear to be light due to furniture and paint yet the rooms are not light. The darker furniture does pop but is harsh?
    The change in the stairs and the wood accents sound right.
    They seem to be very family oriented by photos displayed but…still lacks the family feel in the rooms-maybe a shot of color here or there? There is much stuff-edit and simplify?
    The house is beautiful, just needs your touch:)

    • Hi Debbie! You’re points are exactly what we thought. There was not a blank spot on a wall in this house and although it was filled with lots of family photos and contemporary furniture there was nothing contemporary about it. Lots of clutter did not allow you to appreciate the space.

      Check out of concept photos and tell us what you think!

      Follow us on FB and check out sneak peeks on the construction process. I personally enjoy all the demo pictures. hehe!

      Thanks for sharing. -Ivonne.
