One of the highlights of final month’s Art Basel and Design Miami events in Miami Beach was this compact Modernist property, developed in 1934 by the French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand—but never built. Thanks to the French fashion residence Louis Vuitton, and with permission from Perriand’s heirs, La Maison au Bord de l’Eau, which took 2nd place in an architecture competitors in 1934, was meticulously constructed on the sands of Miami’s South Beach. Expressing Perriand’s commitment to little spaces, the home’s compact size, smart storage and collapsible furnishings appears as modern these days as it appeared radical in Perriand’s time. “No one particular was interested in developing it,” says Perriand’s daughter. Until 80 years later, that is.
