“Architect-developer Adam Meshberg shares his approach to creating spaces that offer equal parts curb appeal and easy liveability
When asked to characterize his firm’s personalized approach to designing both private and multi-family homes, architect-interior designer-developer Adam Meshberg begins by citing the famous Mies van der Rohe quote: God is in the details. ‘We pay close attention to our clients’ daily habits to create spaces that best serve their lifestyles,’ he explains. ‘It’s the small things that end up having the greatest impact—whether it’s custom millwork that stores children’s toys, custom kitchen cabinetry that sits low to the ground to house pet food, or even a custom layout to make space for a private mudroom. Our aim is to make life flow more smoothly.’
Meshberg’s reputation for creating highly desirable living spaces took off in 2009 as his Mason Fisk project hit the market. This highly successful, 26-unit residential warehouse conversion in Brooklyn—for which Meshberg first wore the dual hats of designer and developer—sold out seemingly overnight at a time when real estate sales faltered in the face of the global financial crisis.
‘The project broke barriers for Williamsburg by respecting the authenticity and integrity of the neighborhood,’ Meshberg says of the project’s much lauded approach to adaptive reuse. The architectural rehab honored the building’s history while the interiors offered of-the-moment amenities coupled with warm, inviting aesthetics. Meshberg Group carried on this successful vision of what a contemporary urban home should be through many more residential projects in Brooklyn, contributing substantially to the borough’s 21st-century renaissance.
Riding a wave of pandemic-era migration to South Florida, Meshberg has recently moved to Miami Beach with plans to play a defining role in the region’s surge in dynamic new developments—including District 225, a high-profile collaboration with local real estate mogul Jorge Perez’s Related Group, AirBnb, and others. The new residence will offer 343 fully furnished, ‘toothbrush ready’ units in Downtown Miami, steps away from the main transit hub.” – excerpt, Design Miami
