Called Arte, it will be a typically glam affair. Inspired by Miami’s 1930’s modern architectural heritage, Arte’s contemporary exterior features a series of magnificent terraces, clad in Italian travertine and accented by huge windows framed in rich bronze.
Arte takes its name from not only the artful design of the building, but also the playfully curated artwork within it. Outside will stand an original “ART” sculpture by legendary American artist Robert Indiana. Best known for his iconic “LOVE” sculptures, Indiana was a revolutionary figure in the pop art movement. Inside the lobby will feature a work by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson called “Polychromatic Chronology.”
Expected to be completed in early 2019, the 12- story building spans more than an acre in Surfside, and will bring 16 luxury pads to this chi-chi neighborhood between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour. Residents will be able to stay relaxed and fit with outdoor and indoor pools, a spa and fitness room, tennis court, gym and residents’ lounge.
The exterior landscaping has been designed by Enzo Enea, one of the world’s leading landscape architecture firms.
Designed alongside award-winning, Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design, the luxury pads will range in size from 3,150 to 7,523 square feet and will kitted out and furniture ready (with options for customisation). Air-conditioned private parking will also be provided for each residence.
