BBA and Saladino Design Studios, AIA Miami 2019 Design Awards Winners

The AIA Miami 2019 Design Awards took place at the Historic Hampton House on Friday, October 4th. Two of our clients, Berenblum Busch Architects and Saladino Design Studios, were awarded for their work.

Berenblum Busch Architects won the Architecture Greater Than 50,000 square feet award for their design of the Tenerife Cruise Terminal in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain. BBA adaptively reused two large existing steel warehouses located on-site and strategically added new buildings by using Cross Laminated Timber Technology. Approximately 17,000 square feet of certified wood was used, making it the largest wood building erected to date in Spain. The building achieved the maximum European Union Energy Label. The state-of-the-art terminal was designed to receive mega vessels transporting up to 5,000 passengers and serving as home-port or port-of-call.

Saladino Design Studios won a Divine Detail award for their design of SuViche Doral. The 3,800 square-foot SuViche restaurant in Miami’s popular CityPlace Doral. The design of the award-winning Peruvian-influenced Japanese restaurant concept was inspired by the vibrant colors of traditional Peruvian materials and fabrics blended with Miami’s tropical environment. The whimsical interiors boast vibrant Peruvian colors, playful swinging chairs, macramé rope art mural, Pisco bar and “Let’s Get Saucy” floral and moss graffiti wall.

Berenblum Busch Architects Designs Major Expansion of Carnival’s Terminal F at PortMiami

Carnival Cruise Line received approval for a major expansion and renovation of Terminal F at PortMiami designed by Berenblum Busch Architects. When completed, Terminal F will be the third cruise terminal at PortMiami dedicated to Carnival operations and the cruise line’s largest in North America.

Created to support the operation of Carnival’s new Excel class ship, arriving in late 2022, in time for the company’s 50th anniversary, the project will renovate existing buildings, as well as put in place new structures. The Miami-based global architecture planning and interior design firm, Berenblum Busch Architects, imagined a sequential proposal, a system of spaces that will facilitate the passenger’s experience, and an interior that builds transitions between buildings, “creating passenger excitement as they anticipate embarking on their voyage”.

Berenblum Busch Architects Unveils Carnival Corp’s First Cruise Terminal in Japan at Seatrade Cruise Global

From April 8-11, The Miami Beach Convention Center hosted Seatrade Cruise Global, the world’s largest gathering for the cruise industry’s most significant players. This year, local architecture firm Berenblum Busch Architects, a well-known and respected force in the industry, was represented by its two Founding Principals Gustavo Berenblum and Claudia Busch. During the event, the duo unveiled a 3-D model of the firm’s design of Carnival Corporation’s first cruise terminal in Sasebo, Japan, Uragashira Cruise Terminal.

Nestled between Sasebo Bay and the area’s mountains, the cruise terminal’s design is inspired by Sasebo’s culture, its building traditions, geography, and low-scale surrounding. BBA’s 3D model illustrated their Zen and minimal design approach and highlighted the terminal’s focal point: a curving roof that extends past the building and out toward the lush hills that make the serene scenic environment.

Uragashira Cruise Terminal is expected to be operational by 2020, ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
