House remodeling on Miami Beach by United Architects featured on HGTV

TRANSFORMING A MIAMI BEACH HOME:
A FEATURED HGTV REMODEL

From Bungalow to Modern Home: The Architectural Vision

The journey of transforming a dilapidated Miami Beach house into a contemporary, livable space began with a vision by United Architects. This old bungalow, partly built without permits and suffering from structural issues, was reimagined through demolition, strategic redesign, and the addition of modern elements, including a front extension and a reconfigured entrance adorned with trellis beams.

Overcoming Design Challenges: Creating a Cohesive Space

The original layout presented numerous challenges: a remotely located kitchen, cramped bathrooms, and inefficient use of space. By relocating the kitchen closer to the pool and reorganizing living areas, United Architects optimized the home's flow and functionality. The transformation included converting wasted spaces into valuable living areas, demonstrating a keen ability to navigate and rectify awkward designs.

Strategic Additions: Enhancing Living Areas

Addressing the Florida room's underutilization and the need for additional bedrooms, a comprehensive redesign and extension were undertaken. This included the creation of a fifth bedroom, an inviting foyer, and a hallway, significantly improving the home's entrance and aesthetic appeal. These strategic additions not only expanded the living space but also elevated the property's overall charm and utility.

A Modern Oasis: The Final Transformation

The final design unfolds over almost 2,500 square feet, featuring a rooftop terrace with views of Biscayne Bay. Emphasizing sustainable design, bamboo flooring was chosen for its environmental benefits and aesthetic appeal. The result is a seamless flow throughout the public areas, achieving a modern residence that fulfills the clients' vision and expectations.
