We really try to stay away from becoming another real estate site, with more homes for sale, in point of fact that kind of goes against what Brick and Cornice is all about. However, occasionally we come across some pretty fantastic homes, that we might even describe as being unique? that we feel are worth more than a passing fancy – to note, we have recently started covering new developments such as those from Zaha Hadid et al so maybe moving on to specific homes isn’t too much a stretch. For our opener, a home that’s been on and off the market for the past few years in Miami – 2999 Brickell Avenue, an almost 13,000 square foot home built in 1990 on the bay, just south of the Rickenbacker Casueway. The architecture firm is / was De la Guardia Victoria Architects & Urbanists – in their own words: “emblematic Venetian urban pattern with a residence in the Palladian manner and a great loggia defining a central quadrangular plaza paved in keystone. The building is a concrete block shell finished with lime integral stucco. The floors are Venetian terrazzo and the windows are bronze casements manufactured in the Veneto.” We would describe it as “Spanish Mediterranean and modern purist”.
