Casa Casuarina, Versace Mansion Miami

Unread postby Alamein 300 » Thu Jul 16, 2009 2:18 am

I work as a sound engineer and travel to some really cool places, one of which was this one. This is Casa Casuarina also known as Versace's Mansion in South Beach Miami Florida. Everything was essentially hand build and inlayed under the strict supervision of Versace himself. Aspects of the house include a private Moroccan steam room and a private observatory. Few companies go into this house and even fewer get all access like we did so I am very proud to bring some of these pictures. Enjoy!!!

Interesting shots.
Were they just designs or used by owner? :wink:

Everything was functional at the time when Versace lived there but now since its more of a museum type of scenario a few things have been cut back.

Versace forbid photography in his Moroccan 'jardin' riadh. I've been there and sneaked pictures, but you are not allowed to take them (guards on hand). I would imagine the US property would have the same admission regulations, if the public ever get in.
