Antonio Citterio’s first US building inspired by Miami Beach
Antonio Citterio’s first US building is inspired by Miami Beach’s 1930s heritage
The striking new Arte building in Miami brings the style and finesse of the Italian architect Antonio Citterio to the American luxury housing market
The Italian architect Antonio Citterio opened the doors to the first residence in Arte, his first US building. The 12-storey residential building in the form of an abstract pagoda brings 16 new residential buildings to the coveted location by the sea.
Inspired by the modern architectural legacy of the 1930s Miami Beach, the majestic building is overlaid with patios, sliding glass doors and Roman travertine. The striking facade is defined by the gridded Schuco window system made of bronze, which Citterio designed in collaboration with the Miami-based architect Kobi Karp.
While this is his first residential project, Citterio has enhanced Arte’s luxury experience by designing the Bulgari hotels in Dubai, London, Milan and Bali and the Mandarin Oriental in Milan. Citterio selected material finishes with interior designer Wade Hallock, who names Matthew McConaughey and numerous climbers on the Forbes 400 list as his clients. The couple opted for Roman travertine, bronze, Cenere oak, and honed Byron marble. Then Hallock and his team at Hallock Design furnished the first house with three bedrooms and an area of 400 square meters with Brazilian design pieces and a neutral color palette.
From the 2300 m² terrace, Arte is surrounded by Enzo Enea’s landscaping, creating a layer of green spaces, an outdoor pool and palm trees in front of the beach and the sea beyond. Arte also offers residents an indoor pool, rooftop tennis court, and fitness center, as well as additional options such as a guest lounge and catering kitchen. § §
