Inside Alex Rodriguez’s Sleek Miami Home Inspired by His Daughters | Architectural Digest

  • Published: 04 May 2016
  • Alex Rodriguez’s art-filled Florida house is a design triumph—and a sunny oasis for the former New York Yankees slugger and his daughters

    At baseball star Alex Rodriguez’s home in Coral Gables, Florida, RH chaise longues face the wet-edge pool, while James Perse furniture occupies the adjacent barbecue cabana. Architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman designed the residence, Briggs Edward Solomon handled the decoration, and Christopher Cawley Landscape Architecture helped revamp the grounds; the property was fitted with artificial grass to conserve water.

    In the entrance hall are artworks by, from left, Adam McEwen, Dan Colen, and Theaster Gates; the light fixture is by Michael Anastassiades, the table is by B&B Italia, and the corner chair is by Rick Owens.

    The living room’s blackened-steel panels make a rugged backdrop for a Keith Haring painting (above a Spark Modern Fires fireplace) and a Gérard Van Kal Mon sculpture from Holly Hunt; an Andy Warhol portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The custom-made sofas are dressed in a cotton velvet from Brunschwig & Fils, and the vintage Milo Baughman chairs sport a Holland & Sherry cashmere. The Gabriella Crespi cocktail table and Pierre Cardin floor lamp are both vintage, and the angora carpet is by Woven Accents.

    In the kitchen, the matte-finish oak cabinetry by Italkraft is complemented by gleaming tile; the sink fittings are by Waterworks.

    Paintings by Marilyn Minter and Jean-Michel Basquiat energize the dining room, which is appointed with Cassina chairs and a table from Luminaire. The chandelier was custom made by Remains Lighting, and the cylindrical urns are by Rick Owens.

    In the high-gloss office, a Florence Knoll pedestal table is grouped with Saarinen armchairs, all by Knoll, and a carpet by Diane von Furstenberg for the Rug Company; sconces from Flos flank Marco Ovando photographs.

    The bar contains a Jonathan Horowitz artwork, a multipanel television by Luxus AV, and an Eric Slayton concrete bench from Holly Hunt. A Jim Hunter sculpture is suspended near the Warren Platner lounge chairs and ottoman by Knoll; the wall unit and the Living Divani bench are from Luminaire.

    Briggs Edward Solomon contrasted the bar’s polished-marble top with reclaimed-wood flooring in a herringbone pattern.

    A Marsha Lega wall sculpture shines against a span of concrete in the master bedroom. Briggs Edward Solomon designed the walnut bed, which is joined by nightstands from Luminaire; the rug is by Woven Accents.

    Ella and Natasha hang out on Natasha’s Anthropologie bed; the hide carpet is by the Rug Company.

    A walnut-paneled guest room displays a large Adam McEwen work; the wall light is by Flos, and the Warren Platner side tables are by Knoll.

    Rodriguez’s bath features Waterworks sink fittings mounted on a sheet of mirror, a vintage Senufo chair from Jalan Jalan Collection, and a Malayer carpet from Woven Accents.

    A modern house with cozy interior and a nice facility. A lot of light is coming into the rooms. The outdoor-living 1:02 (next to the pool) I like very much! And the walls and the windows above in the bedroom (1:28)! If I would build a new house I would build like His house! But I would build it with bathrooms! He didn´ t show!

      That big painting (or photo!) 0:47 next to the glass table (0:55) is super super beautiful! It looks like You watch through a rainy window! Lovely! I would take a Moooi Heracleum above the dining-table cause there is enough space for a big lamp down from the room ceiling!

        What a spectacular home. He has great taste and I love the fact that he put his daughters first and focused on how he could build a house for them to live in and enjoy!

                                      Is this is a magazine to be seen? You can’t really see the decor and rooms because it’s moving so fast normally they walk through and we’re able to see the actual house. But from what I could see it’s absolutely beautiful!

                                          I find it just laughable that people are like oh wow he has great taste! If you were worth $350 million you would have great taste to, I mean come on when you are worth that much money, they have never been around or probably seen anything of bad taste! Everything is top quality, top notch, the best of the best and if you had no idea what you were doing, you would pay the best person for the job, to do it for you. Oh and I bet the pool cleaner loves the grass surrounding the pool to. Nothing needs to be practical or of bad taste when you are worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Not interested to see ppl talk but to appreciate the design ... Next time try to squeeze in as much design part as possible rather than ppl explaining it..
