Boxer Floyd Mayweather — a.k.a. the highest paid athlete in the world as of this year, according to Forbes — has put his Sunny Isles Beach vacation digs on the market for $2.6 million.
Mayweather’s condo is located at 150 Sunny Isles Boulevard. The Michigan native originally nabbed the four-bedroom home in 2010 for $1.5 million, shelling out the full amount in cash just three months after scoring $60 million for his defeat of Shane Mosley. Available fully furnished, the barely-lived-in 3,000-square-foot penthouse—which the heavyweight great only occupies two weeks a year—has a wide, open layout decorated by interior design firm Steven G.
According to his real estate agent, the world champ is reportedly looking to upgrade to a more spacious pad—a single-family home, to be exact—to better accommodate his four growing kids, who are now almost all in their teens.
The house designed in Porto by e|348 arquitectura is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two storeys plus a penthouse – and a garage. Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with it’s contiguous exterior spaces and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.
On the ground floor are the social and service areas, plus, on the North-West side, an attachment to be used as a garage. The entire floor is opened, from North to South, allowing social areas relate frankly to their outdoor spaces of natural expansion. The 1st floor consists of three bedrooms, all connected by a balcony with the dual function of solar and privacy control device, by means of a wooden grid supported on a metal beam structure.
The penthouse hosts a reading/study area divided in two levels connected exteriorly by a panoramic path, surrounding a small green roof. Inserted within a previous volumetric urban plan defined by a set of rules, the building aims to provide a unique spatial experience, and achieve a thorough response to its climatic requirements, for, through correct bioclimatic performance, offer, naturally and passively, the desired thermal and lighting comfort.
