Studio Gang Architects has released plans for a 14-story residential high-rise in the Miami Design District, ArchDaily reports.

“[The building will] demonstrate Studio Gang’s principle of exo-spatial high-rise design in which the inside extends to the outside in a dynamic spatial arrangement,” the architects describe.

There will be retail spaces on the ground floor and a resident lounge and swimming pool on the top. Each of the tower’s 76 residential units will provide views of Biscayne Bay and the surrounding Buena Vista neighborhood, framed by the tower’s asymmetrical, white exoskeleton shades, which represent Studio Gang’s reinterpretation of a Florida Room.

According to ArchDaily, the tower will target LEED Gold upon completion in 2016. Green elements integrated in the building’s design include solar shading and rainwater collection.
