Missoni 101 and So Much MorePosted 09.29.2020
Missoni Baia took its residents-focused initiatives into the digital space this spring and summer, bringing members of the design team together with future residents to start building a sense of community at the forthcoming collection of Edgewater condos. Via a series of webinars, people have been learning about the inspiration behind the tower’s striking facade, following along with the landscape architect’s creative process, and even getting a headstart on filing next year’s taxes in the Sunshine State. This way, residents will arrive at the building with a vested sense of ownership and community.
Asymptote Architecture’s Hani Rashid joined residents for a webinar in May, where he spoke at length about his design philosophy and how he applied his experiences in the art and architecture worlds to designing the glass jewel that is Missoni Baia. Rashid’s process began with probing what he called Miami’s “DNA of place,” which includes everything from the weather and the people to the surrounding buildings. In the end, his design for Missoni Baia was a foil to and an elevation of Miami’s usual high-rise style, serving as a pure expression of waterfront luxury.
Residents got an additional look into the inner workings of Missoni Baia’s design with another webinar in June, when two of Enea Garden Design’s Miami leads took time out of their day to talk through the process that produced the landscaping around Missoni Baia. The Enea team accepted the baton from Asymptote and carried it to the finish line, completing spaces like the grand lawn and the amenities deck with carefully chosen greenery and local plants. Ultimately, they created a singular expanse that will feel to residents like “their own private yard” and provide joy even when they are experiencing the Enea team’s contributions passively—for example, when they are simply standing beneath a palm tree and looking out at the unbroken expanse of Biscayne Bay.
Not all the webinars were about the beauty of Missoni Baia. The presentation by Robert Moore and Ceci Hassan of Baker McKenzie, which was a bit more pragmatic, focused on helping future residents make the transition to living in tax-friendly Florida. The details may seem daunting at first, but Moore and Hassan thoughtfully broke down the process by which residents of other states become Florida taxpayers and reap the benefits of the Sunshine State’s low tax burden.
From design appreciation to tax preparation, the Missoni Baia team is helping future residents make the most of the time between now and when they can move into the waterfront tower.
