Villa Tyra - Miami Beach

Project: Villa Tyra
Location: Miami Beach
Product: Listone Giordano Natural Genius Slide Tortora
Year: 2020


Who has not turned his head to look at the Venetian Island when driving along the causeways in between Downtown and South Beach? This group of artificial islands, built at the beginning of the 20th century acts like a magnet with its unique waterfront and the many villas hidden in a very colorful and flourishing vegetation.

Although the Venetian Islands may not be as glamorous as Star Island or Fisher Island, they are definitely one of the most desirable places where to live in Miami: they offer a high quality level of life in a very convenient location plus an amazing view over Downtown and the Bay of Biscayne.

Hidden there, popping up among all the roofs surrounded by fabulous secular trees, there is Villa Tyra, a stunning brand new design house of around 5.500 sqft listed for rent at 75.000USD/month.

Built in 1937 and remodeled in 1987, the villa has now five Bedrooms, six Bathrooms, Eat-in Kitchen, Cinema, Steam Room, Hamman and, of course, automated smart-tech in every area. Many are also the external features such as an oversized pool, hot tub, lounge, covered dining, fire pit and an extended dock where to enjoy endless sunsets over Miami’s skyline.

A special mention for the Master Bedroom: it is a very wide-open space with a walk in washroom. It occupies completely the western corridor and boasts the best view of both Downtown and the Bay of Biscayne through the large glass sliding windows surrounded by very fine bronze frames.

Here, in the Master Bedroom, one of the main features is Slide by Daniele Lago from the Listone Giordano Natural Genius collection.

The unique geometrical pattern in Tortora covers not only the floors of all the bedrooms but climbs with its shapes over the walls behind the headboards noting the continuity of the design with the flooring.

In the master bathroom Slide finds his noticeable position among Honey Onyx and custom made Hermes cabinets.

The endless and mutable pattern of Slide recalls the many lives of the site itself. It enhances the story of this charming location, which has passed under three refurbishment since 1937 and has just now found a new temporary shape: both are never replicating themselves.
