Villa Allegra is a house located in Miami Beach designed and owned by architect Chad Oppenheim. The whole house is set up as a “procession through spaces” – indoors and outdoors.

On the entrance you’ll be able to see a simple, beautiful “oculus” inspired on the work of James Turrell – an American artist specially known for his work on the Roden Crater Volcano – which works as an intermediate to bring you from outdoors to indoors. The materials used are all organic materials typical from Miami – type of wood, fossils, metals, etc.

Villa Allegra has an astonishing 9000 square feet and multiple rooms, both interior and exterior. Only small changes were made to the existing structure. The immense spaces with oversized windows that overlook the pool are some of the distinguishing characteristics of the house.

Chad Oppenheim really applied himself on the interiors of the House, from the floating stairs to all the furniture chosen to fulfill the house interiors. The house has a really big interior space so he decided to use only a few selected curated pieces. Here are some of the pieces that really transformed this minimal and kind of empty space into a wonderful, warm, unique House:

When asked about where the inspirations for his house came from Mr. Oppenheim replied “The beauty of my wife and our mutual love for Miami, to create the optimal lifestyle possible for Miami living and for the house to convey romantic minimalism.”
