Miami's Luxury Real Estate Reaches to the Rooftops

In 2012 Miami-based architect Kobi Karp transitioned from designing luxury resorts to designing private, stand-alone mansions. “When you walk into a beautiful hotel and say, ‘I wish I had this bathroom in my house,’ my job is to make sure that bathroom is actually in your house,” Karp said.

Not many people would describe the Miami residential market as modest, but in Karp’s telling, when he began to design residences the area was flooded with smaller, bungalow-style houses built in the 1930s and 1940s.
