Antonio Citterio’s first US building in Miami
Sea breeze: Antonio Citterio takes Miami
An acre of Miami’s Surfside will be transformed into Arte, a new development of luxury residential property designed by Italian architect and designer Antonio Citterio. To celebrate its first building in the US, an iconic ART sculpture by Robert Indiana will be installed on the site during Art Basel.
The building, commissioned by ASRR and the Süzer Group, is located between the South Beach and Bal Harbor districts at Collins Avenue 8955. Arte will be completed in spring 2018 and will house 16 luxury residences with sea views and amenities, from a spa to a golf simulator to everything in between.
With a subtly shaped, pagoda-shaped long-term view that rises above the pool, decks and palm trees, the building exudes the same luxury that one enjoys in the Bulgari Hotels, Salaino 10 and Mandarin Oriental in Milan and on Orchard Boulevard in Canada Singapore can do – everything that Citterio has behind it.

Alex Sapir, partner at ASRR Capital, fully trusted Antonio Citterio and his partner Patricia Viel: “We knew they would be a perfect fit,” he says. “Our project had to have a sense of exclusivity and sophistication, and the ability to offer great amenities that few projects in Miami have.”
The layered construction of concrete and glass reflects a timeless Miami modernism, similar to the iconic aluminum sheets used in Indiana’s bold typographic sculptures that have become timeless icons. In 1972 he started the ART series in a series of drawings that then developed into sculptural objects. The on-site artwork is a celebration of timeless and iconic design.
Citterio, who works in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Center Georges Pompidou, will also work on the interiors of Arte in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design. Enzo Enea will lead the landscaping.
