Paradise Plaza at the Miami Design District
Paradise Plaza is a one-of-a-kind venue in the Miami Design District, which can be easily transformed for any occasion or event. The space features modern, colorful architecture with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out at incredible views of the District and the Museum Garage.
Zahner provided design assist (through our Zahner Assist service), which included collaboration with the ownership team at Dacra and the architects of record at SB Architects, as well as design engineering for the individual design architects, FreelandBuck and Johnston Marklee.
Zahner fabricated and installed the painted aluminum soffits, wall panels, fascia, and column wraps, as well as the stainless steel custom column wraps and pedestrian bridge cladding, which feature Zahner’s Angel Hair® finish and both blue and silver mirror-polished stainless trim.
To create the surface geometry of the custom soffit, designed by FreelandBuck architects, Zahner engineers utilized a modified, more detailed version of our ZEPPS™ technology. This panel system also continues onto the space’s adjacent fascia, walls, and supporting columns.
Johston Marklee Design
The stainless steel custom column covers and pedestrian bridge cladding were both designed by Johnston Marklee architects. The column covers achieve the appearance of selective polish across the surface through the combination of separate parts assembled together, each featuring a different finish: Zahner Angel Hair, mirror stainless on the face, and blue mirror-polished on the inside edges.
