THE WALL STREET JOURNAL – Architect Chad Oppenheim Goes Rustic With His Aspen Home

By Kris Hudson, The Wall Street Journal November 19, 2015 In Aspen, Colo. , the Rocky Mountain capital of glitz and glam, architect Chad Oppenheim has opted for rustic and spare. Mr. Oppenheim, a Miami-based designer of hotels, residential towers and office buildings across the globe, says he knew when he first visited Aspen to ski as a teen that he wanted a home on the slope of Red Mountain overlooking the city. Mr. Oppenheim, now 44 years old, found […]

PRESTIGE LIVING SINGAPORE – Quiet Spectacle

By Yvonne Seow, Prestige Living – Singapore November 2015 Michael Bay’s three-story home in Los Angeles is anything but typical. Akin to his larger-than-life, over-the-tope blockbuster canons, which include Bad Boys, Armageddon and the Transformers series, this 30,000-sq-ft residence with a cliffside infinity pool, two sprawling bedrooms, a 49-seat state-of-the-art home theatre and a movie prop museum is quietly looming. The Bay Villa is proof that nothing on film or in life is too big. Article PDF: PRESTIGE LIVING SINGAPORE_QUIET […]

NEW YORK POST – Weeks After Art Basel, 8 Ways Miami is Still Sizzling

You can call it a comeback. Over the past several years, the Miami real estate market has gone from serious lows (thousands of unsold condos, for example) to serious highs (the in-contract rooftop penthouse of the Faena House that will reportedly sell for a record $60 million). The new development side is also exciting; in Greater Downtown Miami alone, nearly 18,000 units across 70 towers have been proposed since 2011, according to CraneSpotters. Here’s what else is happening. Lauderdale luxe […]

WSJ – A Not-Yet-Built Home Near Miami to List for $36 Million

Construction hasn’t yet begun on an oceanfront spec house in Golden Beach, Fla., an affluent residential enclave about 30 minutes from downtown Miami. But the house does have a price: It is hitting the market for $36 million. It is a big number. A few months ago, an oceanfront home in Golden Beach set a record when it sold for $22.5 million.

INTROSPECTIVE MAGAZINE – Oppenheim’s Time

An architect with offices in Miami and Basel, Switzerland, would seem to have two very different points of reference — sunny shores one week, mountain views the next. Yet Chad Oppenheim, designer of muscular-but-playful modernist buildings all over the world, is equally comfortable in both realms (he has a house in Aspen, too) and has carved out something of a specialty when it comes to highlighting views and experiences of the outdoors in its many disparate forms. “We’ve got a tremendous desire to […]

NEW YORK POST – Inside The Home of Miami’s Hottest Luxe Condo Designer

The skies may be cloudy, but the vibe couldn’t be sunnier at Villa Allegra, the modernist Miami home of architect Chad Oppenheim and his young family. Ilona, Oppenheim’s Swiss-born wife, prepares homemade granola in the flower-filled kitchen while 6-year-old son Hendrix and 3-year-old daughter Liloo shriek with delight in the backyard. Despite looming rain, the kids teeter atop surfboards in the 60-foot swimming pool as towering coconut palms sway in a tropical breeze. “It’s hard to believe that you can […]

WSJ – Chad Oppenheim’s Minimalist Miami Home

The sleek, austere living/dining room of this Miami home belies the playful pandemonium that goes on here. On the sofa: jumping and dancing. Bicycles, scooters and games of tag pass through here. And when a rainy day befell a toddler’s birthday party last year, the two ponies clomped inside for rides. Chad Oppenheim, the home’s owner and architect, explains that while most of the furnishings are limited-edition, museum-quality pieces, the space, which he calls “the everything room,” revolves around family—himself, […]
