Virginia Key Maritime Center

Miami, FL

Client: City of Miami


The goal with this new (3) story + roof top multi-purpose facility is to achieve a cost effective and aesthetically satisfying experience for Virginia Key visitors by creating beautiful, durable, ecologically sustainable buildings and parks where the relationship between the person, the experience and the various elements are thoughtfully considered to yield an excellent design. It includes a restaurant, exhibition space, storage areas, visitor center / museum, administrative and staff offices, dockmaster offices, support and talent prep space for Marine Stadium artistic performances.

The building would function in conjunction with the Miami International Boat Show, serve as a support facility for the proposed Marine Stadium Performing Arts Center, Offices and Restaurant, Visitors Center / Museum / Gift Shop. The restaurant and the roof top bar would also have views to Marine Stadium artistic performances.

The facility is designed to complement the existing historic Miami Marine Stadium and the adjacent Basin. It is also designed for Sea Level Rise and begins 16-feet above sea level, and for LEED Silver Certification. In addition, there is a central open courtyard allowing for natural light at all floors and functional airflow throughout. The retractable canopy systems are complimentary in shape and rhythm to the concrete canopy format of the historic adjacent Miami Marine Stadium.
