News - Mark Davison on Icon Brickell
In 2008, hot on the heels of YOO’s first project in Miami, Icon South Beach, YOO partnered with Jorge Perez to create a landmark development in downtown Miami. Icon Brickell, with its spectacular architecture and eccentric interiors inspired by the playful, European flair of Philippe Starck, certainly lives up to its name.
Surrounded by two magnificent parks and Biscayne Bay on Brickell Avenue, its breath-taking towers overlook the bay giving panoramic views of the ocean and the unbeatable Miami skyline. The eclectic design concept takes the visitor on a journey through a wonderland of amenity areas, playing with contrasts in space, light and theme, including one of the largest pools in America surrounded by orchard of trees and a huge terraced common deck area.
In this video tour, Mark Davison, Creative Director at YOO takes us through this spectacular development and explains the design philosophy behind one of Miami’s most iconic residential buildings.
