Soho Beach House honored with 2012 state preservation award

Combining the restoration of the historic Sovereign Hotel and a new tower addition, Soho Beach House has won a 2012 Florida Trust for Historic Preservation award for outstanding achievement in the field of restoration/rehabilitation.

The Sovereign, a prewar oceanfront hotel in the Collins Waterfront Architectural District (National Register 2011) was restored and expanded by S+A, in the context of the site’s reuse by the London-based boutique hotel and social club Soho House. 

The project was also recognized with a 2011 Dade Heritage Trust award for excellence in historic restoration as well as honor awards for design from both the AIA Miami (2009) and the AIA Florida (2007).
