Global pandemics have a funny way of altering plans. When a Brazilian businessman purchased a 7,500-square-foot house on a sweeping corner of San Marco Island in Miami Beach, he was thinking of the property solely as a solid investment—a minimalistic, two-story, six-bedroom residence that would surely sell fast in Miami’s hot real estate market. But as Covid-19 began to change life as we know it, he suddenly reconsidered and began to think of the house as home. Not that he was compromising by any means. The jet-setting client had tapped Luciana Fragali from Design Solutions to spearhead the interior design, and when he saw her 3D renderings and heard her vivid descriptions of what she had planned, he decided Miami Beach would be a fine place to set roots in.
