The EDITION Miami Beach, which is owned and developed by Marriott International and Ian Schrager and opened for Art Basel Miami Beach. The project is a stunning testament to Nichols’s design philosophy of blending modern sophistication with historic charm, which has been carried through all of their landmark restoration projects including the Morris Lapidus-designed Fontainebleau, Eden Roc, Loews/St. Moritz, and DiLido (now Ritz-Carlton, South Beach).

Located at 2901 Collins Avenue, on the grounds of the former Seville Hotel, the EDITION Miami Beach is comprised of three intricately-linked structures. Nichols Architects is the architect for the entire project, which includes a 294-luxury hotel situated within the original 1950’s tower, 25 luxury residences set on the top floors of the hotel, as well as in an adjacent, newly-built 18-story glass clad condominium tower, and a curved five-story building that houses 28 bungalow hotel suites and several amenities. Thoughtfully designed, Nichols Architects paid homage to the historic elements of the property, while adding contemporary touches and whimsical details to restore and refresh the mid-century modern condo/hotel.

Serving as the architect for the EDITION Miami Beach, Nichols Architects worked closely with an all-star team of industry experts to execute the project. The team included general contractor Coastal Construction, hotel interior designer Yabu Pushelberg, interior designer of the residences John Pawson Limited, and landscape design companies Madison Cox and EDSA.

Inspired by the gentle yet precise motion of a golf swing

“Architecture must reflect its environment and context, while paying respect to the history of its surroundings, We drew inspiration from the property’s original architect, Melvin Grossman, in order to rekindle the spirit of this iconic building, while infusing it with textures and finishes for the 21st century and beyond.”

Historial tower in contrast with the minimal hotel expansion

Historic lock was restored to its original condition of its iconic Art Deco Miami Beach style.

The new tower is intentionaly hyper reflective in order not to compete with the historical elements of the existing Seville Hotel. The extruded cube pure form is only modified by the carved balconies at the upper Residential floors.
