Arte, the sculptural residential tower by Antonio Citterio in Miami Beach

 

Arte is the apartment building recently completed by Italian architect Antonio Citterio in Miami Beach: it is a 12-storey residential tower with 16 units located on a plot in Miami Beach’s Surfside neighbourhood.

Arte has an unusual shape, which widens towards its centre and then narrow at its top, and is accentuated by glazed balconies with Roman travertine bottoms; in addition, the terraces form expansive outdoor living areas for each unit, which are in turn shaded by the floor above.

The apartments in the building are very sophisticated: for example, the one furnished by Hallock Design presents travertine walls and tiling in the bathroom, a marble backsplash in the kitchen and wood-panelled walls and cabinetry.

Large windows wrap around each of the apartment’s main living spaces to provide views of the ocean and city landscapes, while amenities of the building include an outdoor swimming pool and beachfront meditation pond; inside there is another swimming pool, several lounges, fitness centre, yoga studio and sauna room.

Finally, gridded windows span the lobby walls to reveal the lush greenery around the property curated by international landscape architecture firm Enzo Enea, another touch of elegance the enrich the Arte complex in Miami Beach.
