A Remodeled Miami Townhouse Now Has a Modern "Loft" Look — House Tour

Name: Niraya and Humberto
Location: Miami, Florida
Size: 943 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

We are an architect (Niraya) and a civil engineer (Humberto) and yes, we discuss design a lot. And ever since we lived in Brooklyn, we’ve always dreamed of owning a loft. Living in Miami we knew this was not possible, especially if we wanted to stay in our neighborhood of Coconut Grove. So we looked and looked for a townhouse that we could convert into a “loft.” Luck would have it that we found this place that was the manager’s quarters of the Marriott Hotel in the ’70s and ’80s. It took us 21 months of nonstop DIYs and living in a construction site (with an open scaffold in the middle of the entryway for four months!), but now we love every corner of our home.
