Murano Portofino rises high above South Pointe. The southernmost tip of Miami Beach with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline. The residence is a design masterpiece on the inside, bathed in earth tones of green and chocolate, accentuated by the deep blue ocean. Surrounded by top-notch building security and concierge services, the penthouse residence is the epitome of responsive living.

Smart home design initiatives for Murano Portofino Penthouse were focused on integrating cutting-edge technology to awaken the dwelling at the touch of a button. The homeowner wanted to leave the exquisite architecture and decor as the central focus while adding smart lighting, audio, video, and climate control to complement the space. Motorized shades were also needed for privacy and to harness heat and cold exchange through the stunning floor to ceiling windows.

With these criteria in mind, our team designed a seamless whole-home automation system that provided the responsive lifestyle our client desired. The cutting-edge technology awakens the dwelling with ease and subtlety. With one tap of the touch-control automation system, shades cover the windows and overhead lights gently illuminate a low glow. Playlists change on demand and resonate with incredible clarity from unseen audio sources. Sleek sharp viewing technology is strategically placed to go unnoticed when not in use. Automated climate control maintains an environment of comfort at all times and adjusts on demand.

Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
