Stefano Balli, Vice President of Balli Group, recently spoke to Haute Design and explained what sets Balli Group apart and how he approaches his work in Coral Gables area.


Haute Design: How did you get your start in the business?

Stefano Balli: The company began over 40 years ago when my grandfather, Giorgio Balli Sr., first migrated to Miami from Lima, Peru. He designed and worked alongside some of South Florida's most prominent developers throughout the '80s, working on about 80% of Cocoplum, a gated community in South Coral Gables. Years later, my father Giorgio Balli joined the firm, adding new pillars to the Group - architecture, interior design and construction/development. He has since designed and developed over 350 private residences. I have joined the Group, alongside my father, to continue designing and developing luxury residences throughout South Florida. Since then, we've broken records on each development we've completed.


HD: Describe a design-build company and what The Balli Group does. 

SB: I like to label The Balli Group as a vertically-integrated development firm. We have the ability to guide a client based on budget and desires, from conception to reality. Our pillars include architecture, interior design and construction. We connect with our clients to make sure we deliver a product of the highest quality, while maintaining certain budgets and metrics.

HD: What is unique about your market?

SB: We approach each project as if it were a work of art. It takes time, but once completed, it exudes luxury, quality and warmth. We approach each product differently and can adapt to any style, design, and/or program. Our primary market focus remains in the gated communities of South Coral Gables, but we currently have over 25 projects throughout the municipalities in Miami as well as Ft. Lauderdale.


HD: Which design trends have caught your eye recently?

SB: We continue to see trends catered to wellness, privacy, space and technology. We foresee these trends continuing into the coming years. The trend for more space has actually reversed its course since 2019, where we saw the consumer requesting less space for both living and total. Whereas now, each home we design and/or develop has a dedicated office space, a gym or spa, large exterior areas for sporting activities, lush landscaping, fully-integrated smart home technology and advanced security. We're interested in the advancement of solar technology and what that may bring in the coming years as well.
