Stantec’s Zigzagging Tower in Miami

Solitair Brickell is a 50-storey residential tower in Miami, designed by our friends at Stantec and developed by ZOM Living. The building’s facade features a basket-weave pattern inspired by the bark of the Medjool date palm tree, common to South Florida. The tower’s 438 residences range from studios to penthouse suites, of which there are two, and feature amenities geared towards millennials, such as a a billiards lounge, cabanas, outdoor yoga space and a rooftop pool. There will also be 6,200 SqFt of retail space. In addition to its unique facade, the structure is characterized by a palette of disparate materials: wood, concrete and bright marble. Solitair Brickell is poised to receive Silver Certification by the National Green Building Standard: it features low-VOC paints, recycled glass, low-emitting adhesives and sealants. Additionally, its orientation avoids direct sunlight which minimizes solar gain.
