AMLI Miramar Park
2017 American Architecture Prize Honorable Mention project
The common area in AMLI Miramar Park rental community aspire to be more than just the transitional space between one’s apartment and one’s car. Landscape Design Workshop set up to create an outdoor environment that provides a quality of life typically associated with home ownership.
Located in the City of Miramar, the site contains garden apartment buildings and a clubhouse. Previously a commercial nursery, the site was already cleared and provided a carte blanche for the new development.
The common area is located in the open space nestled between the surrounding buildings. We created a series of distinct amenity spaces that are interconnect and seamlessly flow into each other. The garden spaces are more intimate and provide an opportunity for quiet contemplation whereas the clubhouse and the pool area offer the opportunity to socialize.
A nexus of walkways provide the transition between the garden rooms and the pool area. The clubhouse pool area is comprised of public and semi-public activity zones. Pool fountains provide unique view vistas as well as calming white noise effect.
The common area is developed in an environmentally responsible way. The landscape material is native and Florida friendly, and it is irrigated using reclaimed water with drip irrigation.
The client and Landscape Design Workshop worked closely together and collaborated throughout the project, relentlessly following the original concept with one goal in mind: using the built environment to enrich the residents’ quality of life.
