The exclusive ECHO Brickell highrise sits in Miami’s fashionable Brickell district. The residences within are the perfect fusion of home automation and interior design elegance. ECHO Brickell rises in a sway, high above the city, enchanting onlookers with stunning architecture and modern style. 

Created to exude tranquility and a responsive lifestyle, the ECHO residences were thoughtfully integrated with the latest smart home technology. Among the most notable of the spaces, is this residence. Designed uniquely for a sports enthusiast, the endlessly stylish residence is rich with enviable automation.

Inside the residence, the entryway opens into a grand open-concept space where the living area flows into the kitchen. The entire east-facing wall looks out over Biscayne Bay. Comprised entirely of floor to ceiling windows, one gets the feeling that the residence is actually an extension of the sea below. Automated shades control sunlight as well as heat and cold exchange through the abundant glass walls.

Bespoke interior design combines luxurious modern neutrals with playful witty decor. Lavish neutral seating offset by colorful adornments and a west wall full of adventurous photographs and book titles warm and enrich the Penthouse 55 living room. Smart lighting brightens or dims to highlight eye-catching art and decor, as well as the captivating library. A razor-thin Samsung Frame TV captivates with stimulating artwork when not in use and switches to tv mode instantly. Ambient music streams in throughout the space from hidden speakers. 

To the north and south of the residence are the sleeping quarters. Both look out to the sea. The rooms are outfitted with automated shading, smart lighting, seamlessly adjusted by simple touch commands. Also included in the design are smart TV and independent audio control.

The handsome master bedroom contains a drop-down tv hidden inconspicuously within the ceiling. A unique feature that blends into the interior design without disrupting it. Adding to the tranquility of the space, promoting sleep and relaxation. Walls and furnishings are free to be canvases of stylish reflection. 

Specialized scene presets for the master bedroom adjust the automated features with one tap for specific moods. The “watch tv” scene brings the tv into view, lowers the lights, and brings the blackout shades down over the windows. “Good morning” raises the shades and illuminates recessed LED lights to naturally stimulate circadian waking cycles.

A football-centric theater room was designed specifically for the sports enthusiast. Specialized scenes prepare the room for events with simple touchscreen commands. With one tap, automated shades cover the windows and a projector screen rolls down from the ceiling. Lights dim and the thermostat cools the room to accommodate and comfort guests. Surround sound audio provides a true cinematic experience. Savant video tiles allow for multiple media channels at once. The theater room has everything a sports fan could desire. 

From end to end this residence in the sky is an enviable living space. Even the resident fur babies have a dedicated dog walker with automated entry access. Views, sound, and creature comforts abound, in a stylish responsive space with a breathtaking view of Biscayne Bay.
