Villa OASIS in Miami: Tropical High Standard by Manuel Ruiz



Manuel Ruiz presents Villa OASIS in Miami: the tropical high standard project that captures the essence of the Mediterranean. The latest project of the international firm ARK Architects is located at one of the most exclusive areas of the United States, Miami Beach.


Named as Villa OASIS, it is a high standard residence integrated into the tropical landscape of Miami, which carries the signature of Manuel Ruiz Moriche, known as “the architect of nature and light”. A minimalist, modern and innovative Villa that integrates palm trees in its construction and strengths the features of the area, although it does not forget reminiscent of Mediterranean light and nature.



The project embraces the climate of the place where it is located merging with the water that surrounds it. It opens into a large loft-like space that dialogues with the interior gardens and views of the harbor and sea. A sustainable and efficient residence with the highest design to enjoy a unique environment in a place of the features of the area, although it does not forget reminiscent of Mediterranean light and nature.

A sustainable and efficient residence with the highest design to enjoy a unique environment in a place of world reference. Topping off the entire project with a travertine skin, a magnificent garden, an infinity swimming pool, and it has the privilege of a own wharf.


This villa has been built in harmony with the landscape and nature on the area in which is located, as in every project of Manuel Ruiz, creative director of ARK Architects. The significance of the sea, as one of the attractive elements of the area, is present at the design, as many interior and exterior rooms have privileged ocean views. Villa OASIS, located on an island, keeps an ideal relationship between all the elements: water, light, beach, humidity, nature and the relaxed lifestyle, making people feel as if they were in a true oasis or peace and relax. Like all of the firm's projects, Villa Oasis has also used limited, sustainable and local materials in the construction.


This is not the first project that ARK Architects has developed in the United States, a country in which it already has a long history. Another recent example is Villa Hamptons: a neoclassical house, that combine this style with a modern architectural perspective.


Miami Beach, in Florida (USA) is an area characterized by "postcard" landscapes, a warm and humid climate, tropical colors and coral reefs, making it one of the most popular places in the area. Therefore, ARK Architects wanted to make breath and feel the strength and magnetism of the sea, as well as its views of soft sand and green landscapes to create a perfect symbiosis between their villas built with sustainable materials and the magic of the Florida landscape.


In the words of Manuel R: Moriche, this project "is delimited by a structure of orthogonal plots in the area of the Miami islands, determining a place that has its own DNA and conditions us". Therefore, "we have assumed that it must establish a balance between the existing elements: water, light, beach, humidity, nature and a relaxed and high standard lifestyle".


All these elements are bonded in a Villa turned into art and a tribute to this way of life of the islands of Miami: crystal clear beaches, golden sand views, as well as lush and wild nature. This villa represents the soul of Miami, bringing, at the same time, the essence of the Mediterranean days and nights.


Combining all these concepts, Manuel Ruiz Moriche’s proposal was, once again, a breakthrough in an environment of white architecture, creating simple and precise lines.


The international firm ARK Architects distinguishes itself by designing and building exclusive villas, from the first idea to the last detail. That’s why, each home is unique and personalized. In this project, as in so many others carried out in Spain (Sotogrande, Marbella, La Zagaleta...) or in the city of Cascais (Portugal), it recovers the soul of the environment in which it is located, merging with it, while each villa has its own personality and stamp, thus paying tribute to a mixture of styles and landscapes that make that, in ARK, no two villas are the same, not even similar.
