About Alexander Calzadilla

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. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

In this post we would like to present a 1980 home renovation completed by Brazilian architect David Guerra. According to the architects’ description, “one of the main wishes was to make the interior/exterior integration bigger, making the garden participate in the day-by-day of the house, bringing more light to the rooms that used to be too dark. Another important point was to make this house more modern, giving new spaces and new way to use them, compatible with a new lifestyle and a new epoque of new residents. Integrate spaces, destroy walls, transform doors, windows and attach protection covering, substitute products, recuperate structures, new electric, new hydraulic, new illumination, an atelier, a wine cellar, gourmet kitchen, bathroom, sauna, deck and pool. The reconstruction was huge. Natural characteristic, neutral and raw tones give coziness. Furniture with the bottom distant from the floor, that goes from the stick feet and armchairs, and acrilic chairs have the intention to make the spaces bigger, light and fluid. The mix of styles, which goes from the 50’s, pass by the classics, ethnics, contemporaries, are incremented with Brazilian references”.  Have a look and let us know what you think!
