Stantec has completed the interiors for the 43-story Muze at Met residential building in downtown Miami. Developed by ZOM Living and managed by ZRS Management, the 391-unit luxury high-rise is part of the Metropolitan Miami mixed-use complex located at 340 SE 3rd Street.
"We made the essence of the interiors come to life by merging urban elements with raw materials," said Maureen McLaine, interior designer with Stantec's Miami office. "Sleek metal and bold black accents were blended with stone, wood and leather, creating a natural, sophisticated design concept."
In the lobby, guests are drawn into the space by an undulating light fixture that cascades down to the white marble reception desk. A metal accent running through the dark wood lobby flooring ties the exterior to the interior, while a custom three-dimensional, floor-to-ceiling backlit metal panel screen serves as a focal point near the elevators.
The seventh-floor amenity level includes a relaxation lounge with plush white sofas, polished black petrified wood end tables and decorative wooden slabs anchored by lounge rooms with living green walls. The lounge is complemented by the adjacent two-story-high book-matched Calacatta Italian stone wall across the room. The fitness and wellness center offers a spa, sauna, steam room, yoga room and a fully-equipped gym with top-of-the-line Peloton treadmills and TechnoGym fitness equipment.
A floating wooden staircase connects to the eighth-floor amenity deck featuring a clubroom and entertainment area complete with designer lounge furniture, large screen TVs and a billiards table. Surrounded by glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, residents can enjoy the pool deck views while experiencing the resort-style pool with cabanas, outdoor lounge furniture, and wet bar. Large custom art pieces dispersed throughout the amenity levels cohesively tie in with the raw materials and furnishings.
In addition, the amenity deck features a 24-hour co-working and business center designed with wooden work pods and a separate conference room with glass doors. To appeal to dog owners, Stantec designed an indoor pet salon with grooming and washing stations, and a playground area decorated with custom dog-themed artwork.
The use of reclaimed wood, living green walls, and low VOC paints in the common areas signal the project's adherence to green elements.
The residences, which include studios, one-, two-, three-bedroom units and penthouses, have tile flooring throughout, European-style kitchen cabinetry and bathroom fixtures, a chef's island and stainless steel appliances, including dual zone wine fridges. The prominent 714,000 square-foot, mixed-use project also includes retail space, four restaurants, and an 18-screen Silverspot cinema.
