Venezuelan architect and interior designer Alejandro Barrios-Carrero has won the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Restaurant Design for his firm’s design of Juvia.

The 10,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor restaurant, located on the penthouse level of 1111 Lincoln Road, features an innovative trackless, retractable roof; a 22-foot high vertical plant wall by acclaimed French botanist Patrick Blanc; and furniture and lighting by Patricia Urquiola, Piero Lissoni and Thomas Patterson. The space also boasts a panoramic view of downtown Miami.

WATCH: Juvia's retractable roof in action. 

“In my opinion, Juvia is what the New Miami should be like,” says designer Alejandro Barrios-Carrero. “It’s much more than art deco for me; I do love it, but I think Miami has much more to offer. The restaurant is part of an equation consisting of architecture, nature, and great food, resulting in a special experience.”

Barrios-Carrero installed a trackless, retractable roof that acts as an umbrella and accommodates terrace dining year-round. A celestial water fountain with wrap-around sofas, situated at the center of the terrace, provides seating and further enhances the atmosphere. The indoor dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows features limestone tabletops and a communal table, made of petrified wood, are accented with organic, hand-woven chairs designed by Patricia Urquiola.
