A Miami Renovation That Blends Concrete and Rich Wooden Interiors

Designed with Floridian sensibilities, this bright loft gives an otherwise industrial space some warmth.

Home to restauranteur and dog hotel owner Julio Isaza, the space epitomizes the low maintenance and breeziness of quintessential Floridian living. The original loft was about 90% gutted to make room for an approximately 3400 sf place for entertainment, work and relaxation. “Functionality, practicality and elegance are always on my mind. The ultimate goal is to create spatial harmony based on color, textures, etc.” explains Carlos Casteñada of 2C Design. Featuring a carefully curated array of furniture, Casteñada’s design merges the practicality of industrial elements with the luxury of softer whitewashed touches.
