Antonio Citterio’s first US building is inspired by Miami Beach’s 1930s heritage
Located in Miami, the striking new Arte building brings Italian architect Antonio Citterio’s style and finesse to America’s luxury residential market
Italian architect Antonio Citterio has opened the doors to the first residence at Arte, his first US building. The 12 storey residential building in the shape of an abstract pagoda brings 16 new residences to the sought-after oceanfront location.
Inspired by Miami Beach’s 1930s modern architectural heritage, the majestic building is layered with terraces, sliding glass doors and Roman travertine. The striking façade is defined by the gridded bronze Schuco window system designed by Citterio in collaboration with Miami based architect Kobi Karp.
While this is his first residential project, Citterio has levelled up the luxury experience of Arte to the design seen at 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 Forbes 400 list climbers as his clients. The pair chose Roman travertine, bronze, Cenere oak and honed Byron marble. Then, Hallock, and his team at Hallock Design, furnished the first three-bedroom, 4,302 sq ft home with Brazilian design pieces and a neutral colour palette.
From the 2,300 sq ft terrace, landscaping by Enzo Enea surrounds Arte, creating a layer of green space, outdoor pool and palms before the beach and the ocean beyond. Arte also offers residents an indoor swimming pool, rooftop tennis court, and fitness centre, plus additional options such as a resident’s lounge and catering kitchen. §
