Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom.

Beautiful Cliffside Villa

There may have been times when we have drove past luxurious bungalows and beautiful villas and wished our dream homes to be similar or close to it. Here we take you through a tour of one such beautiful, modernist cliff side villa designed by Oscar Shamamian and Michael S.Smith(remember, the Whitehouse interior decorator?).The villa is situated on a steep site overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.


The principle areas encompass five levels, with related living, dining and library spaces.A glass elevator connects these levels to the bedrooms below and to the roof and pool terrace.

The living room has been set with an 18-ton retractable glass to allow the inside and outside to dissolve into one.The decor inside is kept simple yet elegant leaving room for ample space to showcase some striking displays.

The dining level is elevated above the living level and main terrace for clear, uninterrupted views out to sea.

The street-level access opens to the pool terrace on the roof of the house.A glass staircase, at left, leads to the studio entrance below.

At the studio entrance is a reception place with a prototype table designed by the architect that explores residential diversity.

To complete it all, a pool terrace with steel arches that swoop above and down the hillside are gridded with the network of cables that support sails for shade and privacy as well as encourage the growth of greenery.Now this is what you call an engineering marvel!

 Absolutely amazing.. wouldn't you all think?
