Park Grove is the culmination of a shared vision between Terra Group and The Related Group, who united for the first time with this iconic build. Known for utilizing top talent in architecture, design and art, the partners launched Park Grove as a design competition, inviting four high-profile architects to ensure that the overall concept would honor the neighborhood’s natural beauty and laid-back sophistication. OMA, founded by Rem Koolhaas, was declared winner, making Park Grove the firm’s first residential property in the United States. Inspired by Biscayne Bay, OMA Partner and Project lead, Shohei Shigematsu, envisioned the towers as barrier islands, each uniquely independent while maintaining a linked intimacy. While Park Grove’s layout resembles the islands, each exterior column draws inspiration from palm trees featuring facets designed to block out sun and glare.
Globally acclaimed design house, Meyer Davis, created an interior aesthetic that is friendly with the architecture, and reflective of the character of Coconut Grove. Furnishings and decorative elements are modern and contemporary, but with an organic quality.
