brandon haw plans miami beach parking garage topped with private residences

 

located in miami’s south of fifth district, ‘400 collins’ is a mixed-use development, which, upon completion, will be the city’s only luxury multi-residence car park. designed by new york-based practice brandon haw architecture, the property features four private-access residences in addition to a ground-floor hospitality space accessible to the public. adding to the region’s history of architecturally innovative car garages, the scheme provides restaurant and private residential parking at ground level, with four storeys of public and valet parking above.

brandon haw’s design comprises an ever-changing façade, conceived to interact and engage with passersby. an outer layer of white vertical fins shade an inner skin of vibrant color. this reflects light between interior and exterior. irregularly spaced, the tubular shades form a changing chromatic wave from one floor to the next. the experience also varies according to vantage point, seasonal weather fluctuations, and the time of day.

 

the project intends to respect the character, scale, and spirit of the district, creating a parking garage that takes cues from the neighborhood’s art deco residential buildings. in compliance with the ocean beach preservation district, the design team was mandated to ensure that no cars or their headlights would be visible from the street or from neighboring buildings, and that noise emanating from within would be mitigated. the scheme is being developed by allied partners.
