OMA has finalized the first phase of ‘park grove’, a luxury residential scheme in miami overlooking biscayne bay. the first two of the development’s three towers are now complete, with work on the final tower set to wrap up in 2019. new photographs detail the scale of the project, which seeks to blend the site’s architecture with art pieces by jaume plensa and michele oka doner, among others. the complex boasts a host of amenities, including a rooftop pool deck, an outdoor amphitheater, and a 28-seat private screening room.

park grove, which is being developed by terra and the related group, comprises three structures: ‘one park grove’, ‘two park grove’, and the ‘club residences tower’. the project’s architectural design has been led by shohei shigematsu of OMA, with meyer davis responsible for the project’s interiors — which feature kitchens and baths by william sofield. meanwhile, landscape architecture firm enea has designed two-acres of private gardens that contain a host of on-site amenities in addition to the artworks.

‘sculptural perimeter columns bound each tower, directing views toward the bay and providing column-free living,’ explains OMA. ‘the spacing of these columns addresses privacy requirements between towers, while the orientation of columns mitigates solar exposure. the tapering column profile creates a destabilizing, mirage-like effect from afar, while maximizing their connection to the faceted glass façade on a construction detail level.’ see designboom’s previous coverage of the project under construction here.
