Make Your Mark
at 1 Hotel South Beach

Art Installation Contest


The Vision

Habitat is 1 Hotel South Beach's signature
restaurant that combines fresh, local,
seasonal and sustainably sourced ingredients to
serve farm-to-table cuisine.

At 1 Hotel South Beach, we like to make our
guests feel at one with nature.

On the terrace of Habitat, which is on
Miami Beach's iconic Collins Avenue, we are
looking for an art installation that is both
beautifully eye catching, as well as something
that speaks to our mission.
