ADD Inc redesigns Berkeley Shore Hotel

Architectural and design firm ADD Inc, known for hotel renovation projects in South Florida, is redesigning Berkeley Shore Hotel.  Located at 1610 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Fla., the hotel is expected to be completed in late 2015.

First designed by Art Deco architect Albert Anis, ADD Inc will renovate 64 hotel units, a ground floor restaurant and upper and lower rooftop decks. A new 10-story tower with 33 rooms and a rooftop garden and pool will be added.

The interiors were inspired by Miami Beach’s natural elements, with warm neutrals, pops of color throughout and the use of wood, stone, textural and tactile elements. Meanwhile, guestroom layouts are open and contemporary.
