One of the most acclaimed architects and designers in the world, Antonio Citterio is known for his classic, modernist style with sensuous materiality. His Milan- and New York-based firm, Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, is renown for luxury hotels and spas, elegant boutiques, spectacular private villas, iconic furniture, lighting, and design elements for Europe’s top design houses. Now, Citterio is making his United States debut with the project Arte, a 12-story boutique development that features 16 ultra-luxury residences in Miami’s Surfside neighborhood.
Citterio’s work is well-known across the globe. He is the visionary behind the Bulgari and Mandarin Oriental projects in Dubai, London, Milan, and Bali. Arte offers a rare and limited opportunity to own one of his few residential designs in the world. “We are excited to be the first to introduce Antonio Citterio’s work here in the U.S. with Arte,” states Alex Sapir, Chairman of Sapir Corp LTD, whose Israel and New York-based subsidiary, SC 8955 LLC, is focused on luxury real estate and is developing the project. “The level of design, finish, and detail that went into the building is unprecedented in the Miami market. Antonio is very creative and thoughtful in his work, and we feel his sophisticated aesthetic will be well received by buyers and the community.”
Surfside, located north of Miami Beach and near Bal Harbour, offers the perfect location near some of Miami’s most vibrant cultural, culinary and shopping destinations. Arte gets its name from not only the artful design of the building but also the beautifully curated artwork inside. Outside of the building, an original “ART” sculpture by American artist Robert Indiana will be placed. Indiana is best known for his “LOVE” sculptures. The lobby will feature “Polychromatic Chronology,” a work by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
Antonio Citterio, the founder of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel (ACPV)—in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design—expressed Arte’s façade with broad expanses of sliding glass doors with a gridded bronze Schuco window system and accented with Roman travertine. Arte’s landscaping is designed by Enzo Enea, one of the world’s leading landscape architecture firms. The residence was designed for indoor and outdoor living with breathtaking views of the ocean that emulates a Mediterranean lifestyle.
Some of the amazing amenities of Arte include a 75’ indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, a rooftop tennis court, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, sauna, and steam room and a tranquil meditation pond. Other amazing features include a children’s playroom, residents’ lounge with billiards, catering kitchen for entertaining and private temperature-controlled parking spaces. Half- and full-floor residences are priced starting at $10.215 million.
