An eye-catching sight of Miami Beach is represented by a mix of blue seas and a lifeguard tower designed by William Lane Architect. The Florida-based architectural studio first made its mark on Miami in 1995 with the design of five lifeguard towers that were ravaged after the Andrew Hurricane destroyed the beach and surrounding buildings. Then, 20 years later, the studio had the opportunity to redesign Miami's lifeguard towers, this time totaling 36.
Miami's 36 coast guard towers
William Lane Architect designed a lifeguard tower with an irregular shape
The towers completed by William Lane Architect became the subject of heated discussion. This is because they designed the guard tower with a very eye-catching concept so that this building becomes an iconic image that expresses urban revitalization and the rebirth of a culture that was "broken" in the past.
Applying the concept of art deco with bright colors
Scattered along the Miami coastline, these towers are confident with their eye-catching color palette and irregular shapes. The structure stands out and contrasts with the navy blue that stretches out as the background, making these towers look aesthetic with an art deco concept. William Lance Architect designed the towers with different shapes, intended to create dramatic shapes that keep visitors wide-eyed and smiling.
Attractive contrasting colors
William Lane Architecture features over 40 fun color schemes in pink, yellow, green, orange, and purple. Thus, this building looks striking when viewed from afar and seems to be waving itself invitingly to play. These vibrant colors are applied to the wooden structure, the combination of the two expressing Miami's beach identity and culture.
Dominant color tones with fun and interesting details combine with geometry, rooflines, and contours that enliven the beach as a public space. In addition, in summer, these towers seem to light up and give a retro style when the sun is hot. William Lane Architecture set up the tower by creating a foundation and framework that raised the entire structure to two meters. Above it, a protruding roof is installed to protect the lifeguard from heat, rain, and wind.
