Miami Beach tower penthouse apartment
August 4, 2021
Design: Mojo Stumer (MSA)
Location: Miami Beach, FL, United States of America
A recently-completed luxury Miami penthouse:
Luxury architecture firm Mojo Stumer (MSA) created the ultimate Miami lifestyle in this penthouse apartment in an iconic Norman Foster-designed Miami Beach tower (known as Faena House). The team meticulously customized every aspect of the architecture and interior design of the home – a four-bedroom, four-bath art-forward residence with incredible ocean views.

The project was a full interior renovation (space planning, relocated kitchen and master suites, full interiors and furniture and finishes.) The design of this Miami Beach penthouse was approached with a singular goal: creating a one-of-a-kind jewel-box apartment, one worthy of the world class panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean afforded throughout the space.
Some highlights of the penthouse include:
• MSA created a modern Miami home that has subtle industrial touches throughout, such as:
• Poured concrete flooring
• Large Porcelain panel walling by Florim that resemble concrete
• Hand-made light fixture from Milan
• MSA designed the home to properly display the owner’s already existing luxury art collection, along with new pieces that were hand selected. Some highlights:
• Four Andy Warhols (In the breakfast room)
• A vault art piece (kitchen)
• Master bedroom wall of art and bed
• The MSA team sourced amazing custom pieces throughout, including:
• The pool table by 11 Ravens
• Bar with Grey Onyx
• Rug in kitchen dining area
• Every door in the home is custom glass and metal
• The master bathroom features a wet room with a custom stainless-steel tub accompanied by an expansive Nero Anthracite wall
The Miami Penthouse was just awarded by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency in the 2021 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition, which annually honors North American architects and designers who use Italian ceramic and porcelain tile in creative ways.
In renovating the space, the design team at Mojo Stumer required a strong grounding element that would emphasize the height and significance of the space, support the open-plan living concept, and highlight panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean – all while satisfying the client’s modern, industrial design style. With each of these goals in mind, the designers selected large-format, concrete-effect tiles by Florim’s CEDIT brand to clad the walls. Incidentally, the large-format slabs also served as the perfect backdrop for a carefully-curated selection of furnishings and colorful artwork, which accent the space.
The design of this Miami Beach penthouse was approached with a singular goal: creating a one of a kind jewel-box apartment, one worthy of the world class panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean afforded throughout the space. From early planning, all options were on the table to reconfigure the space in any way necessary to maximize the livability of the home and emphasize the open-plan living concept the clients desired. The kitchen was relocated to have a more central presence in the living area, and the master suite repositioned in favor of a more distinct separation between public and private portions of the home.
Through oversized entry doors (a repeating motif of custom fabricated blackened stainless steel and bespoke wire glass) attention is drawn to the recessed art niche, a polished stainless-steel frame carved into the otherwise monolithic concrete wall panels of the entry hall. The plan is carefully and purposely aligned to carry visitors lineally into the home along this beautifully detailed entry hall, with an oversized picture window looking to the sea as a visual end point.
An intricate layering of ceiling planes and floating lacquer and stainless-steel beams bring down the scale of the hall, thus enhancing the transition into the higher-ceilinged primary living area. The simplicity of the monolithic concrete walls and accents of blackened steel and stained oak is continued throughout the space, with touches of saddle leather and pops of colorful art adding depth and character. The kitchen is raised, partly to facilitate building mechanics but also to enhance its presence in the space as a contrasting polished white box against the otherwise industrially inspired finishes. The bar, carefully crafted of wood, metal, stone, and glass, acts as the true center of this home, where the clean lines and detailing of true modern architecture are fully on display.
