richardmeierpartners Currently under construction in Miami Beach and expected to be completed next year, here is a rendering of the new Surf Club.

The main challenge of the project is to harmonize the relationship between the existing courtyard typology of the historic Surf Club and the new vertical buildings of the residential and hotel complex surrounding the Surf Club. This is achieved through the careful calibration of architectural proportions and of functional requirements. The unifying strategy for the whole project is the consistent introduction of natural light in to the old and new buildings, and the establishment of visual corridors connecting the old and the new buildings.
