Miami Architecture Glamorous Environmental

Miami River Hosts a New Industrial Headquarters

The styles of architecture displayed by the buildings in Miami include the pristine examples in the eponymous Art Deco District, but aren’t at all limited to them. Miami and Art Deco seem synonymous. The city is known for this particular architectural style, especially in South Beach. Miami offers a wealth of interesting architecture to explore, and the buildings employ more than the familiar pastels and geometric lines.

The latest structure on the Miami River by Oppenheim Architecture reflects the vibe of its surrounding neighbor, which is pure 1980’s Miami Vice, with palm trees lining both sides of the river and speed boats filling the private quays. The design team states that they drew inspiration from the simple geometry of shipping containers. Most appropriate for the region and adds to the true vibe of Miami.

Miami Architecture Waterfront Stylish

 The building comprises various shared and private offices, conferences rooms, and various other spaces where one can enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine. The building is right on the water, so theoretically engineers working there could take a water taxi to work. Some might be skeptical of such a design inspiration. However, the interlocking concrete boxes creates inspiring spaces reflecting refinement and soothing appearances.

Today’s innovative thinking in architecture is demanding fresh thinking and vision to a new future. Impacts of population and conservation are forcing a new way of imagining the way we use space and build structures that are both functionally appealing and environmentally sound. This new design by Oppenheim Architecture hits all the marks.  Their design is elegant. Most of all, through a simple structure design, they have captured the essence of Miami and the waterfront lifestyle this glamorous city is best known for.         

Oppenheim Architecture is an award-winning architecture, planning, and interior design firm specializing in hospitality, commercial mixed-use, retail and residential buildings worldwide. The firm’s projects are crafted to establish the perfect balance between artistry and economics. They celebrate timeless architecture that is as beautiful as it is functional.

Many clients like to select a fixture and say – this is what I want. But the most distinctive elements on a project  are usually designed with effort and thought. The Team at ADG Lighting designs lighting fixtures to work with the architectural space.

A Spotlight of a Different Kind

While our daily work focuses on creating custom lighting and furnishings for our clients, we thought we’d take a different approach today, and create a different sort of spotlight if you will.

Today, we’ll focus our attention on those who make it happen everyday: the talent here at ADG.

At times we all review and look at lighting as an item you pluck off the shelf. At times we look at furniture as that item that you see when you walk into the showroom. It is selected, spec’d, and delivered to the customer, and we wait for the relaxed and wonderful smile that comes from the customer’s amazement.

“Wow, my design professional helped with that selection and it looks wonderful!” she says. However, what happens when the specialty side for designers, homeowners and hoteliers alike is customized? Teams like Architectural Detail Group and ADG Lighting take the pen and calipers in hand and begin the design process — because they hold the control with the fabrication that makes the process extra special.

What about the leap of faith to custom design and manufactured lighting and architectural furnishings? We all know the design studio of Charles and Ray Eames and furniture by the iconic Mies van der Rohe.

If you’ve seen the lighting and ornament work by Gerald Olesker and his team at ADG Eco Lighting, you know it is a sight to see. Many have likened their work to the works of Edward F. Caldwell & Co.

Here at ADG, we take pride in our work and craftsmanship. Our significant designs and inspired collections are developed from Olesker working with some of the finest and most prominent architects, designers and building owners around the globe. His works have been placed into homes designed by Marc Appleton, Gwathmey Siegel, and Robert Stern’s office.

Inspired by Michael Berman, Olesker got into the metal furniture industry when Michael suggested to Gerald that he make the MBL Shearboun table for himself. Olesker then began to fulfill orders for Berman and other designers in town for metal furniture. Each fixture and piece of furniture initially comes in a form developed by Olesker within a specific scope for the project. Certainly while designs are repeated, many of the original inspirations remain some of the most published and seen homes and projects today.

Diversity is key component of Olesker’s work. The above chandelier was a requested piece, developed for a homeowner and her prominent husband in the banking industry. Read up on what ADG customers have had to say about our work, and you’ll begin to see why Olesker and ADG are sought after in the industry. 

The below modern fixture was developed for a hospital in New Orleans. Joey Genarro, the industrial designer in charge of production at ADG, developed this fixture. It is quite the hit! ADG Lighting has had many orders for this and variations of this fixture. Eight phases of the hospital currently display this timeless piece.

Contrasting designs and fixtures are key to the successful following and modest studio approach by Olesker and Genarro. The Mid Century Mixx above and the classical iron light and copper lantern are additional examples of the pairings by ADG Lighting.
