The studio designs the brand's new showroom in the Miami Design District

A continuum of convivial spaces, a custom-made space, an immersive experience. The new Lacasacontinua showroom in the Miami Design District, known for its modern architecture, design ateliers and art galleries, was born out of these client requests. Giselle Arrigoni and Roberto Ruini, the brand's Italo-American owners, wanted unique and distinctive environments, carefully curated and customised details for the 300 square metre space on 39th St and Biscayne Boulevard.

Elegant and cosmopolitan has created the Lacasacontinua store inspired by the taste and lifestyle of Miami in the choice of materials, finishes and colours, but at the same time recalling the quality and excellence of Made in Italy. The result is an elegant and cosmopolitan space with a dual functionality.

Welcoming and engaging

On the one hand Lacasacontinua is a reference showroom for surfaces and finishes (marble, stoneware and wallpaper on display), on the other hand it is a welcoming and engaging environment designed to create turnkey projects with customised proposals for the luxury residential sector.

An open space

The Lacasacontinua showroom was conceived as an open space with different areas dedicated to different types of materials in dialogue with each other. The entrance leads into the area dedicated to stoneware finishes, with a kitchen area and a display area for materials. In the same area, in addition to the office, a series of rotating panels dedicated to large 120x280 cm stoneware slabs.

Three-dimensionality for the bar area

Lacasacontinua's bar area is located in front of the entrance, made of backlit Patagonia marble. The use of stoneware in large slabs and marble for products such as the bar counter and for three-dimensional or inlaid finishes creates an ambience that highlights the quality of the materials used.

Impactful aesthetics

Particular attention has been paid to the area housing the services for the disabled with an impactful aesthetic and a striking entrance thanks to red wood panelling and a marble washbasin. Another area of the Lacasacontinua showroom was designed to accommodate the marble display and walk-in wardrobe, embellished with Inkiostro Bianco wallpaper.

Designed in detail

This area also includes a meeting and library area, where marble, stoneware and product finishes (washbasins, bathtubs, faucets) are displayed. The inclusion of elements such as the kitchen, walk-in wardrobe and bathrooms, designed in detail, stems from the studio's desire to recreate real environments in the showroom with harmonious and creative compositions of products, finishes and materials.
