The Manor
Lauderdale by the Sea

Related Group of Miami selected us for the design of this eight-story mid-rise ground up building in Fort Lauderdale. The scope for this project included all design and contract documents for interior flooring, wall covering, reflected ceilings, lighting, plumbing, mill-work, appliances, furniture, accessories and art. We also worked very closely with the landscape architect, branding team, signage company, gym equipment specialist, pool specialist, technology specialist and curator for multiple details of the project. The spaces include a lobby, leasing offices, manager’s office, conference room, gym, zen shower/steam room, employee lounge, elevators, community room, massage room, pool deck, common corridors and two model units. Being brought on early in the project, our team was able to help shape the overall style and feel of the entire project based on the area and target market.


In nature, lines and shapes with continuity seem to reach through space infinitely, and angles create suspense. We imitated nature and applied these principles of continuity for the Interior Design of The Manor to create a dynamic design. This in turn is interpreted impressionably and eternally – geometry will never cease. We used these angles and suspense to give a nautical sentiment in the space that is pleasing and not overwhelming or cliché.

We employed a mixture of clean elements and pattern, such as; marble in a chevron pattern, wood with a white wash, wood bricks with geometric faces that create a brick wall, and a light fixture formed solely with metal chain that mimics a protea. From the moment you enter through the lobby doors, the space will take you to a place that creates a sense of calmness by utilizing nature’s beauty and geometry.
