26 opulent new apartments planned for The Miami Beach EDITION by John Pawson 

The Residences at The Miami Beach EDITION are 26 limited edition private units set apart from anything else in Miami Beach. “There is simply nothing else like them currently in the marketplace. We tried to capture the details of life in the details of the architecture,” says Ian Schrager, the developer behind Miami’s latest residential scheme. All with commanding panoramic views, each of these sophisticated and stylish ‘Homes in the Sky’ is a one-of-a-kind, custom one-off and different from the other.

Designed by world-renowned architect John Pawson, the residences will sit on the top floors of the existing, landmarked 1950s building that will be the Miami Beach EDITION hotel, as well as in an adjacent, newly constructed 18-storey tower. Dedicated to the ‘Good Life’, The Residences offer the privacy and individuality of a custom, one-of-a-kind home and exclusive access to all the services, privileges and amenities of a unique world-class urban resort, including a myriad of food, beverage and entertainment options. Although part of The Miami Beach EDITION, The Residences will have their own dedicated private entrance as well as an anonymous ‘celebrity’ entrance, for ultimate privacy.

Taking into consideration that people come to Miami to be outside, the outdoor spaces at The Residences have been designed for ultimate luxury and relaxation with expansive ‘Outdoor Rooms’ inviting effortless continuity between indoor and outdoor living. Gardens in the sky are akin to those found in private residential homes. These outdoor spaces feature private lap pools and plunge pools, outdoor kitchens, dining areas, fireplaces and pergolas designed by John Pawson. There is enough space for a private outdoor gym or to enjoy yoga, along with soaring panoramic views of both the ocean and the bay. Additionally, many of the homes in the new building feature expansive views of both the city and the bay while those on the top floors of the hotel have vast ocean views.

Pawson uses a high level of finishes and details to create interiors of maximum comfort, functionality and aesthetic pleasure. Generous living areas are light-filled with floor-to-ceiling windows and bleached teak wood flooring throughout, including the balconies and terraces. Each residence has Pawson’s touch with custom-designed, open Bulthaup kitchens with islands as well as master bathrooms with Italian white onyx translucent screens and custom-cast integral concrete bathtubs and sinks.
