Using sketches and drawings, the house has now been replicated, almost eighty years later. It's been built behind a beautiful hotel in South Beach, Miami, for Design Miami, with the sponsorship of Louis Vuitton.

La Maison au bord de l’eau has been constructed according to the original plans, under the guidance of Pernette Perriand-Barsac who worked as her mother’s assistant for 25 years.

The house was made from iroko and okoume hardwoods with a stainless steel frame, and was created in Milan and then shipped to Miami.
