Luxury living has never had a more exclusive address on Miami Beach: Alfred Karram Jr of AKJ Design Concepts and his team of designers present the premiere model residence at The Residences at The St. Regis Bal Harbour. The multi-million dollar model, fully funded by AKJ Design Concepts, is scheduled to open in late September 2012.
The expansive 3,500 square foot model is one of the project’s largest. It is located on the 10th floor of the South Tower of The Residences at The St. Regis Bal Harbour at 9701 Collins Avenue in the upscale Miami Beach Village of Bal Harbour.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer prime luxury and the finest attention to detail specifically tailored to those looking for the most exquisite lifestyle South Florida has to offer,” said Alfred Karram Jr, Chief Designer and principal of AKJ Design Concepts.
With exquisite views of the breathtaking waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the east and across the street from high-fashion Bal Harbour Shops to the west, this new residence is a high-end homeowner’s dream come true.
“Every detail was accounted for and thoroughly thought of,” added Karram, Jr. “We spared no detail, not only in the design of every facet of the project, but in the selections we made throughout the residence,” he said.
C u s t o m – d e s i g n e d European furnishings and finishing details can be found throughout the residence. The architectural focal point is a floating, multi-tiered and stepped ceiling soffit system w/LED cove backlighting, built by Arkin Construction. Another design feature is the 70′ long customdesigned wood and aluminum spine detail accentuating vast East/West see thru views, plus anexotic wood veneered astepped millwork paneling system, finished in a satin gloss cool gray finish.
The attention to detail can be seen throughout the space, from premium Kreon recessed ceiling and wall lighting fixtures, to the custom-designed, 1600 pound, 3″ thick fused glass screen wall with extra heavy ice texturing in the Master entry foyer, to the 1.5″ thick textured glass kitchen counter tops and backsplashes inthe kitchen, supplied by ThinkGlass.
Alfred Karram Jr and his AKJ Design Concepts team envisioned, designed and have overseen every exquisite detail of the model construction. This model features a Bartels German-made, double sliding glass entry into the office via a synchronized matte stainless steel Klassik wheel system and custom frameless glass entry doors with wood surrounds each bedroom.
The residence features a state-of-the-art home automation system as well. All the window treatments, lighting, audio, video, security systems and even air- conditioning are controlled automatically. The residence is equipped with a custom-designed and outfitted Crestron home automation system, installed by Multimedia Innovations. The office is even outfitted with an advanced computer system, viewed via multi-monitors suspended on a curved, automated sliding track over a customdesigned stainless steel and glass executive desk.
