Maison Louis Vuitton Miami

 

A beautiful façade for the new Louis Vuitton "Maison" store in Miami, Florida has a unique, seamless appearance like a white screen catching the sunlight. This artistic creation was achieved using a combination of flat and curved white Ductal® UHPC panels that are just 25 mm thick and produced in two different patterns to mimic the iconic Louis Vuitton flowers.
 

01 - Description

Ductal's ability to meet the architect's design requirements included the need for a highly customized, high quality exterior façade that is light weight, thin and durable - with resistance to hurricane force winds. At "Maison Aventura", one the largest Louis Vuitton stores in North America, art and culture is combined to create a memorable shopping experience.

 

02 - Optimization

The panels, averaging 2 m x 1.7 m, were assembled onsite to achieve a full height of 12 m. The building has no orthogonal grid and the star-shaped precast UHPC flowers were added afterwards. In addition to the 18,000 sq. ft. store's impressive façade, its interior, another successful collaboration with the architect Peter Marino, features a grand staircase with handrails wrapped in leather as well as artworks by Cuban-born artist Jorge Pardo and others.
