CASACOR MIAMI’S VIRTUAL POST-PANDEMIC THEMED SHOWCASE FEATURES 'HEALING OASIS' DESIGN CONCEPT BY B+G DESIGN.
DESIGN FOR A POST-PANDEMIC WORLD
CASACOR MIAMI invited B+G Design to develop a tangible concept around a new way of living, in light of the global pandemic, and to design solutions and fresh inspiration to our current times.
We imagined a home intended to bring forth healing through biophilia, creating a sense of openness, zen and reflection, which blur the lines between interior and exterior, bringing with it a sense of connection to nature.
Comprised of four 8’-6”x20’ standard shipping containers, two of them sliced longitudinally and attached to the sides of the outer structures, is a completely reimagined living environment. Protected by an extended flat roof that creates additional living outdoor space, the u-shaped composition allows for privacy within the otherwise continuous space.
From the covered entry courtyard through the living areas and out to the terrace, earthy tones were utilized to bring a sense of calm throughout. A palette of teak, blackened steel, and stone flow continuously; complemented by carefully-curated, functional furniture and lighting, each working cohesively, like galleries in an art exhibit.
Clerestory windows just below the roofline allow for additional interior height, as well as providing views of the surrounding lush landscape and clear-blue Miami sky. The home is a refuge for the soul, inspiring creativity and well-being.
CASACOR MIAMI invited the most distinguished interior designers, including B+G Design’s Brett Sugerman & Giselle Loor Sugerman, to consider solutions to these questions, and to display their ideas in virtual “showcases” that allow them to express the reality of the new home, in a post-pandemic world.
CASACOR SHOWCASE projects reflect on the post-pandemic life and home, challenging some of the most relevant questions that are part of our new present:
What has changed in our lives and in our homes with the pandemic?
What are our new needs and wants?
Will everything become digital or is there still space for human interaction?
How have our daily living spaces been transformed?
