Encompassing a full tear-out, renovation and redesign of the two bedroom, three bathroom apartment, the project was no easy feat – made even more difficult given Marder was based in the Netherlands! Nonetheless, the dedicated designer overcame logistical challenges, limited site visits and all the complications of navigating a project from abroad to deliver a design that hit all the right notes for her US-based client.
Having made the move from her home of over 30 years to penthouse living, the client’s brief to Avenue Design Studio was to create “a cohesive but contemporary home”. She needed all new furniture, design and layout, as well as in-person materials selection to kickstart the renovation. Marder worked closely with her client, visiting Miami to first meet the contractor and walk through the plans, then to select the materials. In between visits, all the plans, furniture advice and selection was done from abroad.
