Antonio Citterio, Italian master and architect and designer is no stranger to creating marvelous architecture. Based in Milan, Mr. Citterio’s work is well known throughout Europe and his work has been featured in multiple collections at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art and Centre Pompidou in Paris.
Some of his most well known creations are Bulgari Hotels in Dubai, London, Milan and Bali and its latest addition in Shanghai. Mr. Citterio’s work is known for bringing out the best features of every city that it is located in. Now he is ready to give the United States a piece of his expertise.
Known as Arte by Antonio Citterio, Arte will be the first building in the United States by Mr. Citterio and is set to not disappoint his established clientele. To debut in early 2019, Arte takes inspiration from its geographical location, Miami.
Combining Miami’s 1930s contemporary architecture with Italy inspired terraces, Arte exquisitely combines the architect’s love for his Italian heritage with American rustic charm.
Offering 16 luxury residences, Arte will feature a wide variety of first-class amenities such as an outdoor and indoor lap pool, a spa and a fitness centre. Exclusively for its residents, luxury amenities such as a tennis court, a residents’ lounge, and multiple purpose room will be available in a specifically housed area.
While the floor-to-ceiling windows bring in the outside environment, the building structure itself is distinctive in the way it tapers up in an almost conical way. The décor and style is simple, sleek and exquisite in a synchronised, elegant way.
No luxury building like Arte is complete without making its residents feel like luxury as soon as they step in. Ranging in sizes from 3,150 to 7,523 square feet, every residential space will be delivered furniture ready with the option for customizable closets. Air-conditioned private parking will also be available, leaving every resident feeling like living in Arte is a second vacation.
The name ‘Arte’s is not only inspired from the unique design of the building, but also the curated artwork within it. The façade will be adorned by an original “ART” sculpture by recently deceased, legendary American artist Robert Indiana. Inside the lobby will feature a work by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson called “Polychromatic Chronology.”
Sales for Arte is set to launch this fall with officially debuting in early 2019.
