Los Angeles-based sbe has opened the SLS Brickell, its second SLS Miami hotel. The property is sbe’s first hotel and residence project in partnership with Related Group, and reportedly cost $400 million to create.
Arquitectonica designed the 55-story tower that has a faceted bas relief pattern aiming to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. The property has 124 Philippe Starck-designed rooms and suites and 450 condo residences.
Key elements in the design include Markus Linnenbrink’s mural and a lobby sculpture by Bernardi Roig.
Amenities at the SLS Brickell include a fitness center and the Ciel Spa. There's also the private SLS screening room and party room, as well as The Sky Roof, featuring a pool with city views. For events, the property has 10,000 square feet of ballroom and business space, among other outdoor spaces overlooking Miami.
The SLS Brickell aims to connect the building’s activities to the sidewalk, with access to the lobbies and restaurants from the street, according to Carlos Rosso, president of the Related Group’s condominium division. For example, the valet area has a mirrored wall and circular LED video displays on the ceiling.
