8000 Biscayne Boulevard was originally known as the Admiral Vee Motel, named after the famous racehorse. This amazing motel built in 1957 is nestled in the area now known as the Miami mid-century Historical District (MiMo for short).
The structure was raised up over its parking in order to squeeze into the compact lot. With its thirty-foot height and canted glass lounge space it seems to hover over the boulevard like a space ship.
After the Admiral Vee Motel eventually closed down it was later re-born as "The Millionaires Club" during the late 60's. The club was owned by famed
funny man, Paul Lynde who was best know for his role as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched the show during the late 60's. The club featured acts such as
Ella Fitzgerald, and scores of other stars of that time.
In the late 80's, the Millionaires Club closed its doors and Glasshaus Studios was born. Through the decades, the studio has been a favorite of such lens
legends as Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber and Steven
Glasshaus Studios has been serving the South Florida photo & film community for the past 13+ years, but as of fall 2009 the entire space has been completely renovated.
Glasshaus is the only daylight studio that features a private rooftop pool with 8,000 sq. ft. of open outdoor space, over 7,000 sq. ft. of pool deck area and
4,000 sq ft of light-flooded interior space with open glass exposures to the east, west and north.
Glasshaus Studio is located just minutes north of downtown Miami, with easy access to Downtown Miami, South Beach, Bal Harbor and Fort Lauderdale. It is
also equidistant to the Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports.
