Coral Gables, FL

Douglas Entrance

The Douglas Entrance Office Towers in Coral Gables—built in homage to the era of its 1924 predecessor, La Puerta Del Sol—has been fully modernized. Contemporary black awnings and landscaping at the exterior set the tone for an interior that is lush with rich historical details enhanced by modern finishes. The lobby, fitted with beautiful brass accents and sophisticated dark cherry wood detailing, shimmers with old world character set against a modern tone. Sleek white lacquered walls act as a counterpoint to the masculine, black Sahara noir marble floors, while a rotund seating area with a 1972 classic Ueli Berger-inspired sofa, punctuated above by an oversized lighting installation, put the final touch of sophistication on the contemporary space.
