Receptionist uniform sketches designed by Isabel and Ruben Toledo


Considering every last detail, developer David Martin of Terra has commissioned custom uniforms for the staff of Bjarke Ingels-designed Grove at Grand Bay in Coconut Grove by acclaimed designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo. Smartly designed and custom-fitted linen garbs will outfit every staff member from the maintenance staff to administrative assistants. Investing more than 10 times the usual budget for uniforms, Grove at Grand Bay staff will be both comfortable and stylish in keeping with Coconut Grove’s bohemian roots. Terra President David Martin and his wife, Christy, became friends with the Toledos after Christy organized a retrospective exhibition ?of the Toledos’ designs as part of “Full Circle” at Art Basel Miami Beach. This is the third collaboration between Terra and the Toledos, who also designed uniforms for Eighty Seven Park designed by Renzo Piano and Park Grove towers designed by Rem Koolhaas.

About Grove at Grand Bay
Terra’s newly completed Grove at Grand Bay condominium, a pair of 20-story twisting? glass towers located at 2675 and 2669 South Bayshore Drive in Miami’s historic Coconut Grove neighborhood, marks Danish architect Bjarke Ingels’ first condominium design in the U.S. The 98-unit sold-out development, which was also the first new residential development completed in Coconut Grove in more than 10 years, has helped lead the neighborhood’s rejuvenation – an area ?long known for its bohemian attitude and laid-back waterfront lifestyle. With open, spacious floor plans that average 4,000 square feet in size, Grove at Grand Bay’s custom-designed residences resemble vertical homes in the sky, boasting 12-foot-high ceilings and 12-foot-deep balconies with views stretching to Key Biscayne, downtown Miami and Miami Beach. Amenities on property include five pools, a five-star spa and fitness center, a full-time concierge and butler service, a private restaurant for residents and their guests, and a pet spa. The project’s lushly landscaped campus, created by Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles, echoes the natural aura of Coconut Grove and promotes sustainability, with Grove at Grand Bay poised to become the first all-residential development to achieve LEED Gold status in South Florida.
