Saladino Design Studios Selected to Design the Interiors for New Ten30 Residential

Saladino Design Studios has been selected to provide the interior design of Ten30, a new 70,354 square foot condominium development by Shoma Group. The four-story, 43-unit project, which recently broke ground, is located at 1030 15th Street in the heart of South Beach.

Saladino Design Studios is creating a unique residential experience that combines Mid-Century Palm Springs, industrial New York City, and tropical Miami. The firm is designing all the common areas, including the lobby, lounge, outdoor spaces, unit corridors, and rooftop deck.

The lobby interiors will boast colorful, eclectic, Mid-Century stylish furniture and artwork set against the more industrial brick walls and custom wood ceiling paneling. The 6,000 square-foot rooftop deck will feature a rosé-colored pool with teak wood pergola and an outdoor yoga area surrounded by cacti and lush greenery. A quaint lounge next to the pool is surrounded by windows with minimalist furnishings and concrete panels.

The residential development is scheduled for completion in late 2020.

Choeff Levy Fischman Selected for Designer of the Year Awards and are Winners of International Property Awards

Each year, HGTV goes on the hunt for its Designer of the Year. This year, our client Choeff Levy Fischman was selected as a finalist for the national competition’s Dramatic Before + After category – the only Miami firm selected in 2019. The chosen project was a former Mediterranean-style residence built in 2002 which the architects transformed into a more modern resort-style living Miami Beach home.

The award-wining architects conducted extensive renovations to the interiors to modernize the outdated layout and architecture. They also completely transformed the home’s backyard area by redesigning the swimming pool, deck, guest house, and outdoor cabana.

To vote for Choeff Levy Fischman, check out  HGTV.com and vote for ‘Updated Mediterranean Villa in Miami’.

It’s been an exciting month couple of weeks for the firm as another one of their stunning designs was also selected as a winner in the Architecture Single Family category by the International Property Awards. Choeff Levy Fischman’s design of a Palm Island residence in collaboration with their client Aquablue Group will be recognized at the October awards ceremony in Toronto.

The home features the architects’ signature Tropical Modern architectural style with an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living and several water features along with wide open interior and exterior spaces that seamlessly blend the interior and exterior environments.

Congratulations!

PCCSF’s Dr. Allan Greissman Discusses the Dangers of Inhaling Helium with Local 10

At some point, most people have sucked helium out of a balloon to make their voices squeaky. The seemingly harmless party trick – which is especially popular among children – is anything but.

When someone inhales helium, their body cannot absorb oxygen which causes asphyxiation. Helium toxicity is not a common problem, but when it does happen, the results can be serious and even life-threatening.

Nine-year-old Tuesdai Joyner learned the dangers of this activity first-hand while at a birthday party last month. After inhaling helium to make her voice squeaky, she collapsed and suffered a seizure. Dr. Allan Greissman of Pediatric Critical Care of South Florida shared Tuesdai’s story, and the dangers of inhaling helium, with Local 10.

Hear what he had to say here.

The Positive Effects of Good Storytelling

Former Pediatric Critical Care of South Florida patient Xander Nunez has a special place in our hearts. A heart transplant recipient at just four months old, we shared his incredible survival story with the Sun-Sentinel earlier this year in honor of National Heart Month.  The South Florida media channel showed interest in his story and proceeded to interview his mother and our client Dr. Gerald Lavandosky. His story ran in the paper’s print and online versions in February.

Michele McCauley, owner of BurgerFi in Boca Raton Pointe, reached out to the Hopkins-Nuñez family and offered to host a fundraiser for them after reading the article. As a registered nurse, she knows how high healthcare costs can get. But McCauley was able to relate to the family’s story on a more personal level as well.

“I also had a baby who had a heart defect that passed away and I know the stress you’re going through,” she said.

On April27,  a week before Xander’s first birthday, BurgerFi hosted the day-long fundraiser.

“When there’s something wrong with a child, your whole world falls apart and the stress is just insurmountable, and you would change places with that child to make that issue go away. So I always try to reach out to people, if I read it in the Sun Sentinel or see it on TV, I try and reach out to them,” she said.

This recent case study is just one example of how the power of storytelling and visibility can have a meaningful impact on someone’s life.
