Every detail of the LEED Certified 1 Hotel South Beach, which occupies an entire city block on Collins Avenue, was designed to bring the outside in. As imagined by designers Meyer Davis, that means a plethora of reclaimed woods and locally sourced materials, such as regional coral stone and concrete trough sinks, teak vanities and handblown glass pendant lights. Every element has sustainability in mind, from in-room Nespresso coffee machines with recyclable pods, to state-of-the-art energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, to filtered water in all taps, sinks and showers. Plant the Future further creates green moments throughout the hotel that act as a living art exhibit, including living green walls on the hotel’s façade and in the main ballroom and terrariums in every guest room, and guests can choose an array of nature-inspired experiences, such as stargazing or shopping at a dedicated farmers market. There’s even a charitable component for those who like to do good — local nonprofit partners offer volunteer experiences for guests to contribute to sustaining the local environment — and one for those who like to look good, too: this haute hotel’s house car is a Tesla, and it offers complimentary rides.
