First opened in 2008, Miami Beach’s Mondrian South Beach has announced a $20 million dollar property-wide transformation. The renovation is being led by hotel partners Russell Galbut of Crescent Heights and chairman of Norwegian Cruise Line and Michael S. Liebowitz, CEO and founder of Harbor Group Consulting.
Originally designed by Marcel Wanders, the revamp will introduce a completely refreshed design. Brought to life by local Miami-based designers Peter Oleck and Danny Cubes of OS Design Group, Mondrian South Beach’s renovation embodies the spirit of an oceanfront oasis by combining imported natural materials. OS Design Group took inspiration from great coasts like the Greek Islands, Balearic Islands, Amalfi Coast, Sicily, and Tulum to create a new design vocabulary: tropical, raw, organic, visceral, authentic, and laidback but still sophisticated.
The lobby (shown) will feature two-toned marble patterned floors, flanked by fluted natural coral columns that give way to an open reception clad with woodwork, wood reception desks, artisanal handcrafted artwork, and a custom wind-flowing linen chandelier. The lounge features tambour ribbed concave and convex marine blue woodworking, contrasted by dark smoked oak, and Italian pink Quartzite.
The focal point of the property will be its new bayfront destination, Baia Beach Club, led by boutique restaurant group LDV Hospitality. Embodying a Mediterranean coastal flair, Baia (Italian for bay) Beach Club will be an open-air living room space where members can drift through the property’s relaxed design mixed with accents of raw timber, airy shades, handmade macramé fixtures, Belgian linens, and curated bespoke furnishings.
