Soho Beach House
Described as the place where ‘grit meets glamour, hotel meets private club’ Soho Beach House is located on Collins Avenue in South Beach, Miami. Nick Jones requested Martin Brudnizki to work with him on this 80,000 square foot hotel and private member’s club with over 40 bedrooms, three rooftop suites, two large pools, beach cabanas, screening room, Cecconi’s restaurant, and an expansive Cowshed Spa. Drawing inspiration from Cuba and Latin America for the palette of weathered bright colours and patterns, materials used in the project include salvaged timber from Wyoming, encaustic floor tiles from a church in Spain, vintage barber chairs from upstate New York and many reclaimed fixtures throughout the space. Within the hotel suites, one-off vintage pieces were sourced from antique dealers on the West Coast of America, while the bathrooms were designed in a classic British style. The bars and restaurants were created to exude a rustic Latin charm through the use of aged, ‘roughed-up’ materials, dark timber elements and warm, passionate colours.
