coconut grove is a special place with a well-defined soul, so it was important that grove at grand bay respond to its community through a design that was respectful and distinctive,’ explains architect bjarke ingels. ‘by creating twisting towers that rise side-by-side but never cross paths, we were able to optimize views, outdoor spaces and the flexibility of our floor plans while allowing the buildings to interact with one another.’
