Designers converge on The Kampong
Over the past six months, the collective team has worked to bring the century-old historic landmark back to its former glory. The Kampong is the former home of Dr. David and Marian Fairchild and is a registered historic place. I don't think Dr. Fairchild would recognize the place now with all it's modern additions.
The property’s exterior gate, painted a bold red color, will be reflected in the work of interior designers within the four walls of the Kampong, complemented by outdoor works of art by renowned landscape architects Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio, Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design, and a large-scale sculpture by Taylor & Taylor. And, when the public display closes at sundown on April 24, 2016, the impact will continue as items such as the kitchen and bathroom renovations will stay put and decorative silver leaf ceiling installations and museum-quality wallpaper will outlive the three weeks of the Miami Showhouse.
The landmark fundraiser will raise funds and awareness for the Junior League’s programs that help women and children in the community, including Inn Transition North (ITN), a transitional housing shelter for survivors of domestic violence and their families owned by the Junior League of Miami.
“We are proud to have made so many connections - community, private, and government entities - during this project that will continue beyond the three-week span that the Showhouse will be open,” said Emilie Goldman Wernick, president, Junior League of Miami. “The collective commitment to the betterment of our community will be seen for years to come through tangible aspects of the fundraiser that include permanent elements at The Kampong, such as complete renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms, the installation of museum-quality wallpaper, upgraded appliances and fixtures, and more.”
General admission is $35.00 / Opening party reception on April 6, is $250.00. Tickets may be purchased at Eventbrite here.
