Caroline Giraud-Sukornyk, Arquitectonica renovate Nautilus South Beach, a SIXTY Hotel

SIXTY Hotels announced the latest addition to its collection, the Nautilus South Beach. Slated to open in the fourth quarter of the year, the Nautilus South Beach joins SIXTY Hotels' destinations in New York and Los Angeles, and will be the company's first Miami Beach location.

Originally built as the Nautilus Hotel, the 251-room, oceanfront property is located in the heart of Miami's Art Deco district at 1825 Collins Avenue. Designed by architect Morris Lapidus in the 1950s, the Nautilus South Beach will be renovated to pay homage to its original spirit, and updated with the inclusion of a new restaurant, lobby lounge, events and meeting room space, a pool bar and a fitness center. The Nautilus South Beach will have a design that emulates a luxury beach house with public spaces, rooms and suites that will have an international and residential feel.

There will be 251 guestrooms, including 29 suites and two signature penthouses, all with modern technology. All rooms have custom 400 thread-count SFERRA linens, gourmet mini bars and amenities by REN.

The hotel's lobby, where the reception and concierge desks will be located, will be outfitted with communal seating areas, providing space for guests and locals to "plug and play." Upon entering, guests will be met with a beach vibe with nautical accents and tufted grey linen sofas and metallic orange leather chairs at the concierge desk.

Furthering the beach home feel that the property brings as its design inspiration is the use of materials throughout the lobby area, such as grey concrete, glove leather, various stones and linen chairs and sofas, reminiscent of those found in beachfront estates.

In collaboration with Jeffrey Chodorow's China Grill Management and chefs Claude Troisgros and his son Thomas, the hotel will also reintroduce the Blue Door to the Miami dining scene. The newly re-imagined restaurant and bar will accommodate 210 seats including an alfresco dining patio.

Nautilus South Beach will also have over 16,500 square-feet of indoor and outdoor event space.

The Nautilus South Beach, a SIXTY Hotel, is being developed by InSite Group, a boutique real estate development and investment firm, which owns the hotel in a joint venture with Quadrum, a global private equity investment and advisory group focusing on real estate and asset-backed investment strategies. The project is designed by Florida-based designer Caroline Giraud-Sukornyk of CG Design, and architecture is by Arquitectonica.

SIXTY Hotels is a collection of luxury inns based in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami, with new venues debuting in the coming year. Among its properties are SIXTY SoHo, SIXTY Collective's flagship property; SIXTY Beverly Hills, fringing Rodeo Drive and featuring a rooftop pool-and-bar; and SIXTY Lower East Side, located on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
