The Dilido Garden is a programmatically intensive residential garden on a pie-shaped lot on the southern tip of Dilido Island in Miami Beach. The SAOTA-designed architecture spills out onto the longer waterfront elevation, where water gardens with green walls and exterior garden rooms complement views of the Venetian Islands, downtown Miami, and South Beach.

The constrained site called for tactful coordination of proposed underground utilities to designate unobstructed soil space to install large-scale plantings for maximized privacy from the neighboring homes a mere 10-20 feet away.

As guests arrive from the Venetian Causeway, they are greeted with a grand double-volume entrance hall with water gardens and overhead vines creeping through curved screens of etched glass.

SAOTA’s designs are known to maximize the building setbacks. In doing so, they leave thoughtful voids within the architectural footprint to invite the garden in. The second-floor master suite includes its own terrace with a private splash pool and a hot tub. The roof terrace, accessed only by elevator or interior grand staircase, includes an outdoor lounge, bar, fire pit, and a hot tub element with compelling views of Miami’s skyline.

We enjoyed designing the many verdant garden spaces throughout.
