modern loft apartment needed space for artwork with hidden storage

Morantz Custom Cabinetry IncOctober 7, 2012
We built two cabinet projects in espresso rift cut oak veneers for this apartment that overlooks Byscane Bay and Miami Beach. They needed lots of storage space for entertaining platters, a buffet and an art display cabinet that looked built-in with space for luggage and extra pillows and linens for the Zoom Room hidden bed wall unit. The art display has open cubes for sculpture and touch latch doors that conceal the storage areas. The 27' long floating buffet has a drawer unit in the center to ground it visually and a floating glass top that is under-lit by rope lighting. When used as a buffet for evening parties, the food and platters are lit up and the multicolored lights of the buildings in South Beach and the moon light reflect off the water of the bay creating a truly magical experience.

Hi! Just seeing this post for the first time. I LOVE the art display cabinet. My favorite part is the unexpected side-cubby. It's almost as if that cubby was designed specifically for the Buddha head on display. Great work, and thanks so much for sharing!!!

Thanks Annie, we were given the Buddha head measurements in advance for that cubby location. Tzvi.

Can you tell me please if you put in that gray textured wall paper and where its found? I love your place. It sounds fun and great location.

Very nice. I was just looking at the Zoom Room bed the other day, but it is too pricey for me ($3-5,000 approx). Great option for a very small space or to squeeze in a guest bed though.

This is not my apartment, so I do not know where the wall paper came from. It is the apartment of the principal owner of zoom room and the bed unit was his original sample. When he first came to my shop to sell me the zoom room idea, he loved my work and hired me to do these units for him in his apartment. We have collaborated on several zoom bed projects since then .
