Hotel Breakwater in South Beach, one of the most unique of all South Beach resorts, was originally created in 1936 by Yugoslavian architect Anton Skislewicz.
An Artist's Intense Vision
While he may not have been as prolific as other Art Deco architects of his time, his work is among the most iconic and long-standing of his peers. The Breakwater, whose gorgeous facade can be seen in every famous Art Deco Miami Beach skyline photograph and souvenir, is among them, as is The Kenmore Hotel, which was built in 1939. His other great Art Deco hotel work includes The Plymouth Hotel.
A New Iconography is Born Among Resorts in South Beach
After decades of stagnation, its pastels faded, its ocean views undervalued, Miami Beach's jewel of Art Deco hotels has been resurrected to its original glory, almost exclusively due to Jordache Jeans purchasing this formerly fading beauty. Almost overnight, this jewel became a hot property. And with a multimillion dollar renovation, Hotel Breakwater has returned to the chic and sophisticated status that once crowned her queen of all South Beach resorts.
